here are a couple of my favorite satay recipes from "the complete asian
cookbook" by charmaine solomon (my absolute favorite cookbook)

i generally add more tamarind or lemon juice and more chilli or sambal 
to the peanut sauce recipes.


1 lb (454 gm) flank steak thinly sliced

2 TBS soy
2 TBS tamarind liquid (or lemon juice)
1 onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp laos powder
1/2 tsp sambal ulek
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp shrimp paste (trasi)

2 TBS peanut oil

1/2 cp coconut milk
3 curry leaves
1 stalk lemon grass
2 tsp palm sugar (or dark brown sugar)

blend together the first four ingredients into a smooth paste
mix in the next four ingredients

heat oil and fry the paste until it turns brown
add the meat and fry for one minute

add the remaining ingredients and simmer until sauce is very thick.

thread meat on skewers and broil until well browned

serve with peanut sauce.
