For the long weekend, probably the longest holiday we can have of the year I prepared chicken satay, pork satay and beef satay for our BBQ nite at Puncak. I thought instead of doing nothing and just playing cards for the whole day at the villa until our hands cram *hahaha* so... I thought it'd be fun to entertain ourselves at nite :)
I got these satays ready days before since I only have time at night after work. You know that small meat cubes and satay skewers are killer? *hahaha* I experienced that, my left hand was in pain the day after like you've been lifting heavy stuff. I got some marinades from the website. I like most the beef satay, recipe from "kedai hamburg"... delicious, of course it has honey in it and not many other ingredients to keep the beef taste. But some like the pork satay, I guess it depends, huh? For the chicken, I choose to do it Malaysian style. It's not the matter of which one taste better, but I guess we are used to with the Indonesian taste which is more plain than the Malay *hihihi* And Indonesian chick satay uses "kecap manis" my favorite *hehehe*, I guess you can tell why now... Just in case you guys would like to try, check out below.
