Saigon Market Beef Sticks

Serves: 2
Total Calories: 524


1 pound beef tenderloin steak, tips
Aromatic Lemongrass Marinade (see recipe)
1 to 2 tablespoon vegetable oil, for basting
1/4 cup peanut, finely chopped dry-roasted, for garnish (optional)


1. Cut the beef into strips 4 inches long, 1 inch wide, and 1/4 inch thick and place in a nonreactive baking dish. Add the marinade and toss the beef to coat thoroughly. Cover and let marinate, in the refrigerator, for 30 to 60 minutes.

2. Preheat the grill to high.

3. Weave the beef strips lengthwise onto the skewers. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate. Arrange the skewers on the hot grate, baste with the oil, and grill, turning once with tongs (baste again), until the meat is cooked to taste, 1 to 2 minutes per side (2 to 4 minutes in all) for medium (the Vietnamese-preferred doneness for this dish). Serve at once, sprinkled with peanuts, if desired.

Serves 4 as an appetizer or snack, 2 as an entrée
