A recipe for Beef Satay. Grilled cubes of beef with a peanut dipping sauce. Beef Satay recipe with a peanut dipping sauce. Hi All! Today we have beef satay for you! I love the potent flavors of lemongrass, ginger and lime, within most Thai style satays. If you’re able to find kaffir limes and/or kaffir lime leaves use those to replace the lime zest/juice used in this recipe! Kaffir limes are sweeter and more mild than regular limes and the leaves are the best part! They’re filled with this lovely citrus flavor which I may or may not have dabbed on my wrists one or two times to use are a perfume bc I love the smell so much (I’m a creep, I know). Traditionally, beef satay is made with thin slices of beef, threaded onto a skewer and grilled, but we’ve changed things up a bit by using a NY strip steak and cutting the pieces of meat into cubes. The cubes just make for “meatier” (no pun intended) and more filling bites…and we totally like meaty and more filling over here. ;) These make great appetizers at a party or a great entree for a quiet night in. Don’t be intimidated by the laundry list of ingredients! Most of the marinade and peanut sauce ingredients are repeats of one another and most of this recipe itself calls for throwing everything into a blender and blending away. So the next time you have guests over, why not treat them to some really yummy and easy to make, beef satay!

Beef Satay
Serves 3 to 4

1 lb boneless and trimmed New York strip steak, cut into ½ to 1 inch cubes
satay marinade:
1/3 cup dry roasted peanuts
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1/4 stalk lemongrass, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon peeled and diced baby ginger
1 tablespoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
spicy peanut sauce:
1/3 cup reserved marinade
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 lime, zested and juiced
1-3 Thai chiles, seeded (depending on desired heat)
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 green onion, thinly sliced
chopped peanuts
thinly sliced green onions
7-8 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

1. Place steak cubes in a large mixing bowl, lightly season with salt and pepper and toss together. Set aside.
2. Place all marinade ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Reserve 1/3 cup of marinade for peanut sauce. Pour remaining marinade over beef and toss together until all beef cubes are completely covered. Allow mixture to marinate for at least 4 hours (ideally overnight).
3. Skewer 5 to 6 cubes of beef onto each bamboo skewer, until all beef has been used.
4. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat. Pour oil into pan and grill skewers for 2 minutes, on each side. Repeat until all skewers have been grilled. Top satay with chopped peanuts and green onions.
5. For spicy peanut sauce: Place all ingredients for peanut sauce into a blender and blend until smooth. (If sauce is too thick, blend some water into the sauce, 1/2 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency has been achieved) Pour mixture into a small bowl or ramekin, top with chopped peanuts and serve as dipping sauce for satay.

    Would this work for chicken too? Looks great!

      This would definitely work for chicken! I actually make chicken satay with this marinade/sauce WAY more than beef satay, but just thought the beef would be a nice change :)

    We just finished eating this dish (haven’t even started the dishes yet) and can’t believe how flavorful it is. Also very easy to make. Amazing

  14. Dean Not Specified Not Specified

    These were so amazing! I’ve made the Satay with flank before, but this time I tried with the Beef Loin New York steaks I got from Cost Co.

    Only suggestion is to reduce the soy in the peanut sauce. Best Satay ever. My wife and kids loved it so we will be making it again soon.
