Beef Satay With Peanut Sauce

Photo: Wendell Webber
Yield 4 servings
Ordering take-out Thai food isn't the only way to eat beef satay at home. With precut meat, dry salad-dressing mix, and sesame oil, you get all the flavor without having to wait. The salad-dressing mix eliminates the chopping and mixing required for a complicated marinade; combined with oil, it flavors the beef in minutes. The mix also lends a savory edge to a peanut butter-based dipping sauce. Stick the beef onto some skewers, pop them under the broiler for a couple of minutes, and serve.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 .92-ounce package Good Seasons Roasted Garlic salad-dressing mix
  • 1 pound presliced sirloin
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Wooden skewers soaked in water

How to Make It

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the dressing mix, and 3/4 cup water and set aside.

  2. If the beef strips have not already been flattened, gently pound them flat with a rolling pin. In a bowl, toss together the beef, oil, and remaining salad-dressing mix. Coat each strip of beef well and thread a skewer through it. Broil 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve the satays hot with the dipping sauce.

  3. If you made it from scratch: 1 hour
