Sates in Singapore play the same role as hot dogs in New York, popular and affordable. What makes these sates so extraordinary is the cut of beef, rib eye, the most generously marbled steak you can buy. When assembling the sates, be sure to intersperse cubes of lean beef with fattier cubes of meat or steak fat. I added the alternative use of sirloin steak which is a decent substitute. Best cooked on a charcoal grill, but if you cook on a gas grill, the robust spicing of these sates will blast through loud and clear. I gave an optional recipe for Singapore Cucumber Relish. The purpose is to give you a bite of cool, crisp, crunch to counterpoint the spicy hot meat. From Planet Barbecue!: 309 Recipes, 60 Countries by Steven Raichlen.
