Barbeque season is open! Grilling is a great way to celebrate the arrival of summer and we’ve found a mouth-watering recipe to help you get started.
This delicious Cilantro Lime Beef Satay recipe is courtesy of Grill Grrrl and comes with a marinade that she says will be sure to make it in your “Top 5” marinade list. Serve these with Middle Sister Rebel Red or PromisQous Red and voila!
Recipe for 4 Servings
12+ bamboo skewers (soak for 30 minutes beforehand)
1lb beef sirloin, cut into 1” wide pieces, 1/4” thick slices
1 package of Naan, Pita or flatbread, enough for 4 “wraps”
one tomato, diced
2 cups arugula
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
2 tbsp lime zest
1 tbsp lime juice (the juice of one medium sized lime)
4 tsp fish sauce
1 1/2 tsp dark brown sugar
1 tsp canola oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup low fat sour cream or greek yogurt
1/4c cup minced cilantro
1 tbsp lime juice (or the juice of one medium sized lime)
Puree all marinade ingredients (soy sauce, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, fish sauce, oil, sugar and garlic) with a hand mixer or food processor until it forms a paste.
Combine marinade and beef in a non-reactive container and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
Thread the beef strips onto pre-soaked bamboo skewers.
For the dipping sauce, combine all ingredients (sour cream, cilantro and lime juice) and refrigerate until ready to serve).
Preheat a charcoal grill to medium high heat, about 350-400 degrees.
Grill the skewers for 3 minutes on each side or until char marks form.
Grill the Naan or Pita bread for 30 second each side to warm them. Serve the skewers placed inside the Naan or flat bread. Remove the skewers and add the cilantro/lime dipping sauce and arugula and diced tomatoes.
Enjoy – and let us know how it turns out!
