Beef Satay & Spicy Peanut Sauce

Strips of steak are marinated and grilled, then dipped in a creamy and tangy peanut lime sauce.


  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat Asian-style dressing
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper


  1. Soak twelve 6-inch bamboo skewers in water 10 minutes; drain.

  2. Cut steak into 1/8-inch strips; set aside.

  3. Combine marinade ingredients in medium bowl; reserve 1/2 for basting. Add beef strips; toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator up to 2 hours.

  4. Meanwhile combine sauce ingredients.

  5. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Thread beef, weaving back and forth onto each skewer. Place kabobs on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, about 2 to 3 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning once and brushing with remaining marinade. Serve with peanut sauce.
