Recipe by BakinBaby

Sosaties have their roots in Malay cuising; in Malay; sate means "spicy sauce" and sesate means "skewered meat", Lamb sosaties are the South African national favorite, but beef, pork and chicken are common also, feel free to substitute if desired. The meat is marinated for 1-2days in a spicy, curry mixture accented with apricot jam and ginger. Sosaties are prepared and served at braai, the Afrikaans word for picnic or barbecue held in the bush. Marinate time is NOT included in prep or cook times. Posted for ZWT 7. I found this at
