Lombok-style Marinated Beef Satay Recipe – Resep Sate Ampet Sasak

In Lombok, as in neighboring Bali, satay meat is usually highly seasoned and marinated before grilling.

Ingredients :

  • 2 lbs (1 kg) beef sirloin
  • 24 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 4 hours before using
  • Lime or lemon wedges, to serve
  • 1 portion Sambal Kecap

Marinade

  • 4 candlenuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 in (21/2 cm) fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2 red finger-length chilies, deseeded
  • 2–3 bird’s-eye chilies, deseeded
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried shrimp paste (trasi), dry-roasted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cups (250 ml) thick coconut milk

Method :

  1. Cut the beef into bite-sized cubes and set aside.
  2. Prepare the Marinade by grinding all the ingredients (except the oil and coconut milk) to a smooth paste in a mortar or blender and adding a little oil if necessary to keep the mixture turning. Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat and stir-fry the ground paste until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add the coconut milk and simmer until the Marinade has thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Pour the Marinade over the beef cubes in a large bowl, mix until well coated and allow to marinate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Prepare the Sambal Kecap by following the recipe.
  4. Thread the marinated beef cubes onto the bamboo skewers and grill over ot charcoal or under a preheated broiler for 5 to 7 minutes, turning and basting frequently with the Marinade, until the meat is well cooked and browned on all sides. Arrange the satays on a serving platter and serve with the lime or lemon wedges and a bowl of Sambal Kecap on the side.

Makes 24 satays or serves 4 to 6
