DIRECTIONS

  • Slice beef into long thin strips 1/8 inch by 1 inch by 5 inches long.
  • Combine the garlic, lemongrass, coriander, sugar and fish sauce in a mortar and pestle until mixture is a paste. Use a blender or food processor if you have to. Marinate meat for 12 to 24 hours in this mixture.
  • Make Peanut Sauce: Heat the oil in a small pan and add the garlic, chili paste and tomato paste. Fry until the garlic turns light golden brown. Add the broth, peanut butter, hoisin and sugar, and simmer for 3 minutes. Cool and add the peanuts and chilies. Set aside.
  • Thread beef onto skewers, grill briefly to medium rare over high direct heat and serve with the sauce for dipping, garnishing with the nuts.
