Sate Beef

One of my old favourites, i haven't made it in years, mainly because i don't think the kids would eat it (bit spicy and strong tasting). this was from the old australian womens weekly chinese cookbook from the 80's and was one that mum made regularly. we always used Jimmy's sate sauce (definitely NOT satay sauce) which I think is by far the best.

AWW Sate Beef

500g fillet steak, in one piece
1 1/2 tspns soy sauce
2 tspns sesame oil
1 tspn cornflour
2 tabs water
2 tabs oil

1 clove garlic
1 medium onion
3 tspns sate sauce
2 tspns dry sherry
1 tspn curry powder
2 tabs water
2 tabs soy sauce
1/2 tspn sugar

  1. trim all fat & sinew from meat, cut into 5mm slices
  2. gently pound each slice to flatten slightly. put meat in bowl and add marinade ingredients. mix well and stand 20 mins
  3. heat oil in wok or pan, saute meat until brown, separating each piece as it goes in. brown on both sides, remove from pan.
  4. peel and roughly dice onion, add to pan with crushed garlic and saute gently until onion is transparent. combine sauce ingredients, add to onions in pan. stir until boiling. return beef to pan, cook until beef is tender, around 1 minute. serves 4.

You can make your own sate sauce now - easy peasy in the TMX - just need some stinky blachan paste, peanuts etc
