Satay is made of skewered meat that is grilled and taken commonly with the ever fragrant peanut sauce. Another hawker hero, satay is sold in all over sunny Singapore and industries have grown from it.
While everyone does satay differently, in our recipe the choice meat we use is pork belly due to the fact that the fats keep it nice & moist, giving it more flavor.
By making your own satay sauce, you will have absolute control over the amount of sugar then goes into it, so that you can get to savor the TASTE of the meat, instead of just usual sugary sweetness. This is a meat-licious bomb!
On the side, our version of the sauce is skewered (no pun intended) towards the chunky side, if you want it to be creamy and smooth, simple – just blend the peanuts until it’s finer. You can replace the pork belly with your choice of meat be it chicken, mutton or beef.
Enjoy playing satay man! And always use a charcoal grill.
