  • 7-8 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


  • pound boneless and trimmed New York strip steak, cut into ½ to 1 inch cubes

satay marinade

  • cup dry roasted peanuts
  • cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup plus 1 ½ tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ stalk lemongrass, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and diced baby ginger
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon curry powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

spicy peanut sauce

  • cup reserved marinade
  • ¼ cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1 to 2 Thai chiles, seeded (depending on desired heat)
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced


  • chopped peanuts
  • thinly sliced green onions


  • Place steak cubes in a large mixing bowl, lightly season with salt and pepper and toss together. Set aside.
  • Place all marinade ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Reserve ⅓ 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).
  • Skewer 5 to 6 cubes of beef onto each bamboo skewer, until all beef has been used.
  • 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.
  • 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, ½ 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.
