Made everything except the satay sauce. Added the extra cayenne and cut down the cumin as in previous reviews. Will make again and again. Used inexpensive cut of meat and marinated overnight.
I will definitely make this again! Based on someone else's review, I cut down the cumin in the marinade to 1/3 tsp and the flavor of the beef was amazing. The peanut sauce was a little bland and one-dimensional to me, so I added 1 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger and 1 T soy sauce. Over all, though, we loved it--very flavorful and easy!
These satays were ok; but we found the cumin in the marinade overpowered the rest of the flavours. Next time i would omit the cumin altogether. Also, I used the full cayenne amount and I would not call the satays spicy. So add more cayenne if you want something hotter. My family (I dont like peanut butter) really liked the peanut sauce. Made for Holiday Tag
This was very good and we really liked the marinade but didn't much care for the satay sauce. I added some garlic, ginger and soy sauce to the sauce and that seemed to help for our taste. Over all a nice recipe full of flavor. I used flank steak that I had in the freezer which has become one of my favorite meats lately. Had to broil it in the oven because of the continuous rain here. Thanks I'mPat for sharing. :)
A wonderful recipe!! I made almost exactly as is, except instead of using a small onion chopped finely. I used a medium one cut into wedges which I threw into the marinade and then used it to thread between meat on the skewers. As beef has really gone up in price, I made with a combination of beef and chicken and it was a nice contrast. The satay sauce was so simple compared to others I have made including my own, but was really tasty and so much easier to make. The only change I made was to throw in some sweet chili sauce. The brand I buy has quite a nice kick to it and it just added that extra zing I love along with the chili flakes. A keeper for sure as it is 23 hours less marinating time than I am used too, with a great end result and a great satay sauce with no fuss, can't beat that. Thanks Pat
This was FANTASTIC....i did half beef half chicken and OMG sooo good-the chicken melts in your mouth and the beef was perfect . For personal taste i added i teaspoon of soy sauce to the satay sauce and i tablespoon of sweet chilli-Fantastic recipe definatly a keeper
This was made for the swap game and thoroughly enjoyed! I actually did a change on this, I used 1 pound of chicken breast cut into strips in place of the rump roast and it worked very well, I also did a few other minor ingredient adjustments and made this on my indoor gill, thank you for sharing this Chef potts, I will make again!
Loved it, I had always had peanut and chicken, never had it with steak. The steak goes delectably well with the coconut-peanut sauce. The only change I made was to use onion powder. I served it with stir-fried rice on the side. And everything was easy to put together. Thank you!
This is gorgeous and pleased the in-laws tonight! RE Marinade: I worried the 2t. cumin wd make this too "Mexicany", but the strong cumin flavor cooked away. I added a garlic clove and put in <1/4c. olive oil & 1T. peanut butter instead of p. oil. It made for a lovely, FLAVORFUL, thick marinade that stuck well to the meat (it marinated overnight). I plan on using this marinade for our Spring BBQ! RE Sauce: I went shy on the chili flakes (1/4t.), but the richness of the sauce can definitely handle the 1/3t. I was disappointed that the coriander got a bit lost in the richness & thought that going lite next time wd improve this sauce for me. MIL wd have no changes, though, and requested the recipe!
I really liked this. I served it with steamed basmati rice and some stir-fried Asian greens. The marinated beef has a lovely flavour that the satay sauce really enhances. I like spicy foods so I did not think that it was that spicy, however it is easy to adjust this to personal taste. I did make 2 small changes - 1 planned, 1 not. I used coconut flavoured light evaporated milk instead of 'real' coconut milk to lower the fat content. This worked very well - I couldn't tell the difference. I didn't have chilli flakes in the pantry so I used 2 small whole dried chillis instead. I like a thick sauce so it did take quite a while for my sauce to reduce to my liking. I will probably thread the skewers prior to marinating next time.
