12 wooden skewers, soaked in water for at least 20 minutes
1. In a small heavy skillet, combine the cashews and coriander seeds and place over medium heat. Cook, shaking the skillet frequently, until the cashews are lightly browned and the coriander is fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes.
2. In a food processor, combine the toasted cashews, coriander, shallots, garlic, ginger, sambal, fish sauce, brown sugar, and lime juice; process until almost smooth.
3. Slice the beef against the grain into 1/4-inch thick slices. Thread the beef onto the skewers. Coat the beef with the cashew mixture, cover, and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
