These simple skewers, served with a crunchy salad, will really beef up your barbecue.


for the skewers:

  • 6 tbsp dark soy sauce/tamari
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 level tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1 level tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 800g lean beef steak, allvisible fat removed, cut into 12 thick strips (about 3 x 12cm)
  • Chopped fresh coriander, to serve

for the salad:

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp nam pla (Thai fish sauce)
  • Pinch of sweetener
  • 2 apples, cored, sliced and cut into thin matchsticks
  • 4 celery sticks, cut into thin matchsticks
  • 4 tbsp roughly chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 tbsp roughly chopped fresh mint


  1. Preheat your barbecue (or grill to hot).
  2. Mix the soy sauce, lime juice, peanut butter and sweet chilli sauce together in a wide bowl and season lightly.
  3. Add the beef strips to the mixture, toss to coat evenly and leave to marinate for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile make the salad. Mix the lemon juice, nam pla and sweetener in a bowl. Stir in the apple and celery so they are well coated in the dressing, then add the coriander and mint. Toss to mix well and set aside.
  5. Thread the beef strips onto 12 metal skewers and place on the barbecue (or under the grill). Cook for 3-4 minutes each side, or until cooked to your liking.
  6. Remove from the heat, sprinkle with the chopped coriander and serve 3 skewers per person with the salad.

Tip: The beef can be prepared in advance and marinated for up to 48 hours in an airtight container in the fridge before cooking.
