Beef on a Stick
Saich Ko Chrawkak
The absolute most favorite Cambodian appetizer (beef brochettes)
Total: 40 min (30 min prep)
Style: Authentic Cambodian
Yield: 25 servings (2 each)
50 6" bamboo skewers
6 ounces Angkor Lemongrass Paste
1.5 T Kaffir Lime leaves (finely julienned)
1.5 T cooking oil
1.5 T Oyster Sauce
3.5 pounds skirt steak (sliced ¼” by 3” strips)
Soak the end of bamboo skewers in a glass of warm water for 10 minutes (to keep them from burning while cooking). Mix lemongrass paste, kaffir lime leaves, oil, and oyster sauce in a large bowl. Add beef and mix well. Slide the meat onto skewers, ensuring skewer is not exposed between the pieces of meat. Grill over high heat, 5-7 minutes each side.
Serve with papaya salad, or freshly pickled veggies and your favorite cold beer.
Tip: Skewered meat can be prepared ahead and frozen for future use.
