Simple sateh sauce

For this really simple, yet very good and tasty sateh sauce, you just need the following.

  • 200 grams of peanut butter ( I used the one with nuts in it)
  • 300 ml of simple water
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • a big spoon of sambal, but hey, that’s just me….
  • about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce

For this to work, very simple, put the peanut butter in the pan. Add the water and start stirring until it cooks.

Once it cooks, add the squeezed garlic, the soy sauce and the sambal to the party.

Keep stirring and keep stirring and let it cook until the desired thickness is reached. It’s a very simple process, but in return you will get a great sateh sauce!

Pork Sate with homemade sate sauce

Yesterday, it was fantastic weather and I just had to light the grill once more. Nobody to cook for, so I kept it simple, but not less tasty!

For the sate I bought a pork tenderloin of about 400 grams. Not much, but it will do the trick just fine! I’ve cutted it up in a small cubes, most of them the same size, of course.

The next thing to do was to cut up, very finely, a spanish pepper, and about 3 cloves of garlic. I do love my garlic, and I’m not scared of it one bit! Very healthy too!

Just mix it in and add a nice shot of soy sauce and some good olive oil. Mix it all well and placed it in a ziplock bag and in the fridge for a nice overnight stay.

Next day, I fired up the grill and waited until it was simmering hot! I took the sate meat and placed it on wooden sticks, that I soaked a long time in water.

When the grill was ready, I placed them very shortly on the coals, turning them rather quickly. about 30 seconds per side.

After that, I moved them to an indirect spot. This is when I made the sate sauce, but more about that over here.

Once ready, just serve with some bread and enjoy! I know I did!
