idfb Challenge #5 : Sate / Satay (Sate asem betawi / Sour beef satay)

Sate Asem Betawi / Sour beef satay

Satay or Indonesians usually call it sate, is a dish of marinated, skewered and grilled meat served with a sauce (wikipedia). Satay is very close to Indonesians' hearts and I think it's everybody's dish. Cooking satay over charcoal is very unique and add taste to the satay. The only satay I know when I was a kid was Sate Madura. It's chicken satay with peanut sauce, it tastes sweet and smells good. Then when my father bought a portion of goat satay, he let me to try it. Goat satays served with chopped shallots, sliced chilies sliced tomato and sweet soy sauce. Definitely yum ! After that, goat satay was listed on my satay list.

My husband was the one who introduced me to Sate Padang (West Sumatran Satay) long time ago before we got married. Sate Padang was our favorite dish on our date. :D Sate Padang has strong taste of spices, and that's one of the reason why I love it. Married with one kid, now the three of us love the same satay.

idfb (Indonesian Food Blogger) is running its 5th challenge. I'm so lucky to be able to host this event. Digging deep into Indonesian traditional foods through challenges. Couldn't think of any fun ways to learn and enjoy Indonesian traditional dishes at the same time. Have you take your part ?
