Mongolian Beef Satay is strips of beef marinated in peanut oil, garlic, ginger, dark brown sugar, and soy sauce and then grilled to tender perfection.
This Mongolian Beef Satay started out as an experiment and turned out amazing!! I have been wanting to try a beef satay but I wasn’t crazy about any of the recipes I found online. So I decided to take the ingredients from our Mongolian Beef recipe and condense them into a marinade. At first my husband was a little annoyed that I cut up all the beef for this recipe (he had wanted to make a steak) but he took one bite and changed his tune pretty fast! In fact, he kept sneaking sticks of it and before I knew it, the beef satay was all gone! I am going to have to make it again and keep the next batch all to myself. 🙂
Most beef satay recipes have a peanut dipping sauce, which if you prefer you can find HERE on our chicken satay recipe. But I decided to mix things up and do a spicy sauce which made the meal a yummy combination of sweet and spicy!
- 2 to 3 lbs sirloin steaks
- chopped peanuts for garnish
- wood skewers
- 2 Tbsp. peanut oil or veg. oil if you are allergic
- 1 tsp. ginger
- 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
- red pepper flakes to taste
- 1/2 c. soy sauce
- 1/2 c. dark brown sugar
- 1/2 c. mayonnaise
- 1/4 c. sour cream
- 1 tsp. sriracha hot sauce
- 1 tsp. lime juice
- pinch of garlic powder
- Mix together the marinade ingredients in a large bowl.
- Cut the beef into long thin strips, then stir it into the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. About an hour before serving, mix together the sauce ingredients and refrigerate. Then soak the wood skewers in a water bath. (This will keep them from catching on fire during grilling).
- About 20 minutes before serving, thread the meat onto the skewers, baste the meat with some of the marinade, then discard the excess.
- Grill for about 6 to 7 minutes on each side over direct high heat, only turning once.
- Garnish with chopped peanuts and serve with spicy dipping sauce.
