Beef Satay with Hoisin Dipping Sauce
Preparation/cooking time: 20 minutes
To quote my husband, who is a teacher, this dish was an A+.
He liked the flavorful, tender beef and the crunchy addition of the peanuts, as well as the pan-fried ramen noodles that I served on the side.
The reason the dish made the grade for me was not the flavor – though it was good – but the ease of preparation. The marinade time was short, the dipping sauce could be made as the meat soaked up flavor and the cooking time was less than five minutes.
The only thing I didn't like about the satay was the dipping sauce. The mix of hoisin and ketchup – both sweet on their own – was too much and the lime juice wasn't able to cut it. A bit of sriacha may have given it the bite I thought it needed.
