Beef Satay

As I have mentioned in my Beef Panang post, I love beef, for example: mongolian beef. I also love beef satay, marinated and skwered and beef grilled ala kebabs or chicken satay. Since I am in the mood for an appetizer, I decided to use it to make some Malaysian-style beef batay.

Satay is probably Malaysia’s “King of Street Food.” It is enjoyed by people from all walks of life. Satay is perfect as an appetizer or snacks. The skewered meat never fails to impress, especially for those people who have never tried Malaysian street food. Serve the beef satay with a spicy peanut sauce and you have the most amazing tasting skewered meat ever, with a flavor so complex and deep that you want more with each bite.

Anyway, here is my easy, authentic, and super delicious beef satay recipe, with a spicy peanut sauce for dipping. Serve the beef satay with some onion and cucumber. Take some cucumber and onion after each bite of the beef satay to refresh your palate. Trust me, it’s the most amazing combinations ever.

Malaysia is probably very far away but beef satay can be prepared at the comfort of your home. Enjoy!

    There’s beef liver and tripe versions too. I like the liver satay. Never tried tripe satay tho. And mutton satay rocks!

    Is 5-6 Tablespoons of chilli powder correct in the Satay Sauce Spice Paste?

    Is was super hot for me, maybe teaspoons next time???

    Thank you for an authentic recipe. Tried other celebrities’ websites and could not believe what else gets put into the recipe. Not Malaysian beef satay at all. At least not the ones I’ve tasted and was taught by Malaysian friends years ago. This will rock my BBQ party!

    I’m confused about the spicy peanut dipping sauce. I mixed it as instructed but it basically is a lightly peanut flavoured water. Which makes sense, I think, given that it is just equal parts water and peanut. And I can’t tell where the spicy flavour is supposed to come from.

    I agree, I lived in KL for several years and the peanut sauce sounds like chopped peanuts floating in water..
    and why two spice pastes and chili powder and not chilies?

    • Have you actually tried the peanut sauce recipe? There is not a lot of water used in the peanut sauce recipe and you have all the spice paste and also the peanuts. You can ground the peanut instead of roughly chopped. How you like the texture of the peanuts is up to you.

        I use your other peanut sauce recipe, which is different than this one, and much better and closer to the Wednesday night markets in Klang.. I can’t get a recipe from back home, as try to get any auntie to share is not possible la

    As my mom’s side is from Malaysia and I’ve had the opportunity to travel several times to both Malaysia (including KL, Klang, and Kajang) and Singapore, and have a lot of delicious malay cuisine. As such, back in the US I’ve been craving some good satay and thought I would give this recipe a go…. but when I tried this recipe out, measuring everything by scale for accuracy, was still rather disappointed with the taste. It’s missing something that I can’t put my finger on. It wasn’t very bad or good, very so-so.

    Lucky I only put in 1 teaspoon – it’s still supa dupa hot. I also added a can of coconut cream and 2 heap tablespoon peanut butter… Delicious!

  9. My favourite is Satay Perut aka tripe. I used to live in Kajang and was so easy to pop into town and buy some. Now I have to make from scratch lol. The British version of satay and peanut sauce is not recommended lol xx

    Hi Bee, love your site. I think you should take a closer look at the dipping sauce for this one – it looks like you left out all the chilies, so it’s a “spicy” dipping sauce made of just tamarind, water, and peanuts.
