BBQ Beef Satay

25 Minutes | easy | Serves 2

Sirloin is a lovely cut for skewering, as it stays really soft and cooks quickly – leave it a little pink in the middle, if you like. The satay sauce is simple to put together, and rich with coconut and peanuts, yet freshened with lime.


  • 500g sirloin steak
  • 2 stalks lemongrass, tough outer layers removed and finely sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika or chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 100ml coconut milk
  • 100g peanut butter
  • 50ml lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Chilli flakes, to garnish
  • Neutral oil for frying




Combine the lemongrass and all the marinade ingredients except the steak with some salt in a blender and whizz to a paste.

Trim any fat from the steak and cut into 1cm thick strips against the grain. Marinate overnight or for as long as you can. ​​​​​​​

Heat a splash of neutral oil in a wok and cook the shallots and garlic for a minute or so, stirring. Turn the heat down low and add the coconut milk and peanut butter, mixing until smooth.​​​​​​​


Add the lime juice

Add the lime juice, sugar and soy sauce, followed by the ground coriander. Mix well and cook gently, stirring, for a couple of minutes. Set aside, covered, until the beef is ready.​​​​​​​
