Grilled Beef Satay

Grilled Beef Satay


This recipe was absolutely delicious. The marinade gave the beef  such depth of flavour, and the peanut dipping sauce was spot on. Be sure to speak to your butcher and get a cut of beef that will be super tender for this dish. It can make or break the whole thing.
As you see in the photo, I like to double skewer the beef so that it’s easier to flip on the grill. Also, while the photo below wasn’t the best in the group – I caught a bee in mid-flight and couldn’t resist including it for you all to see.

Grilled Beef Satay Ingredients

Adapted from Webers Big Book of Grilling

Serves: 4



1 scallion, finely chopped
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup light soy sauce
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

2 pounds beef tenderloin or equivalent tender cut

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter


  1. In a small bowl whisk the marinade ingredients with 1/4 cup water.
  2. Cut the beef into 3/4-inch cubes. Place the cubes in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Remove the meat from the bag, reserving the marinade. Thread the meat onto skewers, leaving space between the cubes. Allow the meat to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.
  4. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).
  5. Grill the skewers over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to your desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes for medium rare, turning once.
  6. Pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan, bring to a boil over high heat, and boil for one full minute. Add the peanut butter, return to a boil, and whisk until the sauce thickens. Serve warm with the beef skewers.
