The instruction how to make Malaysian satay
- Process lemongrass, ginger, galangal, garlic and eschalot in a small food processor until smooth. Transfer 1/2 the mixture to a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add turmeric, cumin, coriander, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir to combine. Add beef. Stir to coat. Cover. Transfer remaining lemongrass mixture to a small bowl. Cover. Refrigerate beef mixture and lemongrass mixture for 2 hours.
- Place peanuts in a small food processor. Process until finely chopped.
- Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add remaining lemongrass mixture. Cook for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add sambal belacan. Cook for 1 minute. Add chopped peanuts, 3/4 cup water, tamarind, lime juice, and remaining sugar and salt. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until slightly thickened, adding extra water if satay sauce becomes too thick.
