Satay Beef Balls Recipe

Satay Beef Balls and Peanut Sauce Recipe

Introduce to you my friends, satay beef balls dipped into savory peanut sauce. This combination is absolutely delicious.

Beef balls are made from minced beef. It is oven grilled and this makes it easy to clean up. Traditionally the meat is served on sticks. I came up with idea of making it into shape of balls for a new tasting experience that I hope to share with you.

The fragrance of this beef balls is from mixed spices and marinate with lemon juice. When they are dipped into peanut sauce, it is a burst of delicious flavor from beef and creamy yummy taste of peanut sauce.
