Daring Cooks: Satay

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on January 14, 2010

It was Tuesday night.  That meant that I had to make it on the 13th.  No questions.  Mom had bought steaks, and this challenge gave a lot of freedom about the meats – just use the one you want!  That meant it would be steak.  Funny thing about beef (and pork for that matter) is that I used to love them.  In fact, at 5 years old I could eat more ribs than my dad.  No joke.  Then, as I’ve gotten older, it started to not appeal to me anymore.  I’m not vegetarian or anything (not that being one is bad – I think whatever you choose is awesome =D), but meat just doesn’t hold the same appeal to me that it used to – I barely eat any now.  Something about the texture, I think.  I love fish, and eat poultry but meat doesn’t seem to work like it used to.  I heard somewhere that with autoimmune disorders, red meat does not always agree with your system.  Anyways…

The moral of that story was that I didn’t actually eat this challenge, just a bite to taste.  I know, I know, but there wasn’t any time (or I totally would have made a chicken one!).  I’ve been completely wrapped up with the Daring Bakers, and am just now done this semester’s classes.  Phew.  I only have two exams, and I’ll really be finished! Yes, next semester will be busy (read: I’m taking an extra course online and my friend (hi!) just asked me to take another online course with her – I’m honestly not sure yet.  That would be a lot of courses!).  And yes, the online course is Foods!  Simply because I love it, and figure I might as well get credit for what I do anyways.  I can’t take it in school because of the wheat or if I did it would be no fun as I wouldn’t be able to actually try anything I’d made and would always be worried about getting glutened.

Anyways, back to the challenge at hand:

The January 2010 DC challenge was hosted by Cuppy of Cuppylicious and she chose a delicious Thai-inspired recipe for Pork Satay from the book 1000 Recipes by Martha Day.

I used Cuppy’s recipe for quick satay marinade, only substituting wheat-free tamari for the soy sauce!

This is my first time using Flickr to upload my photos.  I think its working, but only the final posted post will tell.  I guess I’ll have to wait! (You lucky ducklings!)

All you do, is throw it all together in a bowl, cover and chill.  I used the simple recipe provided by Cuppy!

All cooked.  I broiled them.

I asked my brother if I could make his plate pretty.  He just looked at me weird.  But, then he ate every single bite!
This was a good challenge.  My parents and brother loved the beef.  I think I’ll be making these again =D.  Thanks to Cuppy for this challenge!  My only note is that if you’re not a fan of cayenne, lower the amount.  My dad loved that, but my mom thought it was a tad bit spicy.  Whatever works for you!
Have a fantastic week!
