"This originates from a small cookbook that was attached to Australian Table Magazine. The satay sauce is good with chicken or beef. If you wish to lighten the fat you could use half and half or fat reduced cream with 2 or 3 drops of coconut essence (add one drop at a time and taste). Diabetic friendly using low fat option and substituting brown sugar with splenda (depending on your tolerence to sugar). Does not include chill time. Will yield 12 skewers/sticks."

Daily Inspiration

Grilled this beef satay tonight for dinner. I marinated the beef for about half a day vs 1 hour;however,the meat did not pick up much flavor from the marinade.The peanut sauce was tasty,but didn't thicken up so I served the beef over rice and ladled the sauce over it. Served alongside a green vegetable.
