  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Thai curry powder

  • 3 pounds beef top round or flank, cut into 1/2-inch thick strips
  • Peanut Sauce, recipe follows
  • Special Equipment: wooden skewers
  • Peanut Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 6 slices chile pepper, minced
  • 1 cup peanut butter

Directions
Marinade:

Combine marinade ingredients in a shallow pan or bowl. Add beef and marinate, in the refrigerator, for 1 to 3 hours. Meanwhile, soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Skewer the meat and then grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until the desired degree of doneness. Serve with peanut sauce.

Peanut Sauce:

Heat peanut oil in a saute pan over low heat. Add garlic and "sweat" (cook until it softens and releases moisture but does not color) over low heat until fragrant, approximately 1 minute. Add the chile peppers and continue to cook for another minute. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Adjust the consistency with additional water, if necessary.

Yield: about 2 cups sauce
