Cooking Time: 15 – 30 min
Serves: 3 – 4
Total time: 30–60 min
Cook Method: Grill/BBQ
400 g Meat (lamb, chicken, beef, etc.)
3 Garlic cloves, minced
60 ml ABC Sweet Soy Sauce (Kecap Manis)
10 g Yeo’s Sambal oelek
1 Lemon, juiced
1 g Salt
1 g Black pepper, ground
15 ml Cooking oil
8 Satay skewers
4 Garlic cloves, minced
50ml ABC Sweet Soy Sauce (Kecap Manis)
15ml Lemon juice
5g Yeo’s Sambal oelek
2 Kaffir lime leaves, finely chopped
1. Cut the meat into evenly shaped cubes (2cm or 1in) and place in a bowl. Combine the garlic, sweet soy sauce, sambal oelek, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and diced meat in a mixing bowl and allow to marinate for more than 1 hour in the fridge.
2. Soak the bamboo skewers in water. Mix all the ingredients to make the dipping sauce, and set aside.
3. Thread the diced meat onto the skewers and grill or barbecue, turning often and basting with leftover marinade for 15 minutes or until cooked (to taste).
Tip: Beware! Sambal oelek is spicy. It is used by Indonesians for the sole reason of giving a dish some extra heat. Thus, it has no ingredients other than fresh chilli, to avoid affecting the complex combination of existing flavors already used in the dish. Your sweet and Indonesian spicy satay chicken dish is ready!
