The secret to great sate is high heat cooking. This makes the flavor of the spices, especially the coriander, much more delicious. The recipe works equally well for sirloin steak or chicken breasts. Serve the sates with one or both dipping sauces — see the recipes below. Serves four with bread or rice and salad as a meal, or makes enough appetizers for a dozen people.

  • 2 TB. water
  • 2 lbs. boned lamb (shoulder or leg works well)
  • 3 TB. soy sauce
  • 3 TB. peanut or vegetable oil
  • 2 TB. rice vinegar
  • 30 wooden skewers

Combine SATE SEASONING and water in a medium sized bowl. Set aside to give the flavors time to develop. Trim meat of excess fat and cut into 3/4 inch cubes. Add meat and remaining ingredients to bowl, mixing well. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for 2 hours. Before starting the coals, place skewers in water to soak. Stack charcoal 2 deep across bottom of grill. After lighting the coals, thread about 5-6 pieces of meat onto each skewer. Once the coals are very hot, grill sate in batches, 3-5 minutes per side. The sate should be crispy brown on the first side before turning. High heat cooking is the key to producing the most delicious sate. Donít be afraid to fan the coals into a high heat frenzy before putting the sate on the grill.
