Beef on a Stick
Saich Ko Chrawkak
Absolutely the most favorite Cambodian appetizer (beef brochettes)
Total: 40 min (30 min prep)
Style: Authentic Cambodian
Yield: 15 servings
25-30 bamboo skewers
6 ounces Angkor Lemongrass Paste
2 T Kaffir Lime leaves (finely julienned)
1 T cooking oil
1.5 T Oyster Sauce
3.5 pounds beef Chuck Roast (sliced ¼” thick)
Soak the end of bamboo skewers into 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 sliced beef and mix well. Slide the meat onto the bamboo skewers, ensure the skewer is not exposed between the pieces of meat. Grill at high heat, 5-7 minutes each side.
Serve with papaya salad and your favorite cold beer.
Tip: Skewered meat can be prepared ahead and frozen for future use.
