While satay is a Southeast Asian dish, it is becoming popular at Chinese dim sum. The hoisin sauce gives this recipe a different flavor than Indonesian or Thai satays.
1 1/2 pounds beef, sliced thinly, then cut in 1" wide strips
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
Arrange meat in a shallow glass pan. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over meat. Marinate, covered and refrigerated, overnight. Drain.
Thread each strip of meat lengthwise on a soaked* bamboo skewer, weaving it in and out. Broil or grill briefly, until browned on both sides.
*The author recommends soaking the bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes before using, to prevent them from burning.
Yield: 6-8 Servings
