I've been so busy I didn't even notice that this thread has continued!
Yesterday I brewed 2 beers, well a 10G batch split in 2 with some crystal 60 added to one half. The base of the recipe was pretty much edworts house pale with a little munich thrown in.
But...BACK TO THE FOOD - My woman has been complaining that she wants some thai food. I am however, a little hostile to the idea of pad thai. Had to say why, maybe because I've had one too many awful ketchupy versions, if you know what I mean.
Here what I made instead - turned out quite well.
Beef Satay with Spicy peanut sauce and coconut veggie rice.
beef - 1# sirloin cut against the grain into 1/4 - 1/2 thick long slices.
marinated in 1/2C coconut milk, 1tblsp brown sugar, 1 tblsp soy sauce, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2onion, 3cloves garlice, all blended together until smooth.
Marinate at rm temp for an hour, skewer them and put directly under a really hot broiler 2-3 mins per side, until brown. Delicious! A word of warning though, the skewers WILL burn.
The peanut sauce is what makes the dish. 1/2c coconut milk, 1/4c good quality peanut butter ( I like chunky), dash brown sugar, dash fish sauce, dash soy sauce.
Simmer with 1/4c hot water, bring to boil until thickened, serve warm.
The rice was just mixed w stir fried asian veggies and a dash of coconut milk added after.
Enjoy. I would make this again and my woman was very excited!
