For the Peanut Sauce:
  • 150 grams of peanuts, roasted
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 stalks of lemongrass, bruised
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 cm of ginger

  • 2 cm of galangal
  • 1 tablespoon of tamarind water (or lime juice)
  • 1 liter of water
  • 2 tablespoons of cooking oil
  • Salt to taste

Cooking Instructions:
Preparing the Peanut Sauce:
  • Sauté garlic, ginger, turmeric, and galangal in cooking oil until fragrant.
  • Add roasted peanuts, kaffir lime leaves, bay leaves, and lemongrass to the sautéed spices. Stir well and sauté briefly.
  • Blend the sautéed spices into a smooth paste using a blender or food processor.
  • Pour the spice paste into a large saucepan and add water. Cook over medium heat while stirring continuously until the sauce thickens.
  • Add salt and sugar to taste according to your preference. If you like, you can add tamarind water or lime juice to give the sauce a slightly tangy flavor. Once it boils, remove from heat and set aside.

Making the Satay:
  • Prepare thinly sliced beef.
  • If you are using pre-made satay seasoning, marinate the meat in the seasoning for 1-2 hours to enhance the flavor.
  • Skewer the marinated meat onto the soaked satay sticks.
  • Grill the satay over an open flame or on a grill pan until cooked and browned. This usually takes about 3-5 minutes per side.
  • Serve the satay hot with the prepared peanut sauce.

Serving:
Sate Padang is typically served with warm white rice and the flavorful peanut sauce. You can also add sliced shallots and kerupuk krupuk (crackers) as accompaniments. Enjoy the spicy and savory delight of Sate Padang, and don't hesitate to savor its delectable peanut sauce. Happy cooking!
