Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 5 min


Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce
½ lb flank steak, cut into 2-inch-wide strips
2 Tbsp soy sauce, divided
1 Tbsp honey, divided
1 tsp dark sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp warm water
2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
¼ tsp crushed red pepper

Marinated Cucumber Slices
1 small English cucumber, sliced
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp olive oil

Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce
Preheat broiler. Thread steak onto metal or bamboo skewers (If you use bamboo skewers, soak them in water 30 minutes before threading the steak). Place in an 11- x 7-inch baking dish. Combine 5 tsp soy sauce, 2 tsp honey, oil, and garlic; pour over kabobs. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes, turning once. Place kabobs on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil on top oven rack 5 minutes or until browned. Combine cilantro, water, peanut butter, 1 tsp soy sauce, 1 tsp honey, and red pepper. Serve with kabobs. Serve with lime wedges and sprinkle with cilantro, if on hand.

Marinated Cucumber Slices
Toss together all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
