This recipe is so simple and so delicious and the peanut dipping sauce is fabulous.  It’ll look like you worked hard to plated_beef_skewersprepare this meal but really, you didn’t.  It’s perfect for summer when it’s too hot to cook inside!

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 can coconut milk, divided
  • 1-1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, divided
  • 2 lbs. boneless beef sirloin steak, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 medium limes, halved and thinly sliced, optional
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped salted peanuts

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine first five ingredients.  Add 1/4 cup coconut milk and 1 tsp. pepper flakes.  Add steak; seal bag and turn to coat.  Refrigerate 2-4 hours.

Drain and discard marinade.  Thread beef onto 16 metal skewers or soaked wooden skewers, alternately threading beef with lime slices if desired.  Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 6-8 minutes or until desired doneness, turning occasionally.

In a small saucepan, combine peanut butter with remaining coconut milk and pepper flakes.  Heat through.  Transfer to a small bowl(s) and sprinkle with peanuts.  Serve with skewers.
