2 Red jalapeqos -- stems removed
4 Stalks lemongrass -- sliced thin
6 Lime leaves or the peel of 1 lime
4 Cloves garlic
1/8 Oyster sauce
Cut beef into thin slices and thread onto skewers.
Mash or blend the Jalapeqo,lemon grass, lime leaves, garlic and galangal together. Combine the mixture
with the remaining marinade ingredients. Place in a saucepan, and bring to a boil for 1 minute. Remove
from the heat and let cool. Taste for sweetness; it should be present but not dominant.
Marinate the beef in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
Grill the skewers over hot coals, keeping the beef at least four inches from the heat lest the sugar
burn, until desired doneness.
Serving suggestion: Before cooking, stick a chunk of fresh pineapple on the end of each skewer. Serve
with Green Mango Salad and steamed rice.
NOTES : Use a mortar and pestle to combine the ingredients or if you lack one, use a blender.
Heat scale: Medium
