“This is an Indonesian dish that I actually had in the Caribbean. It's marinated meat on skewers and is delicious cooked on the grill! I always serve it with peanut sauce and rice...It's a family favorite! For a taste of the islands...give it a try! (Prep time includes marinating time for several hours or overnight)”
8hrs 15mins
1-2 lbs. of sate' meat

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients, except meat, well.
  2. Add meat cubes and marinate in refrigerator several hours or overnight.
  3. Place meat cubes on metal or bamboo skewers.
  4. If using bamboo skewers, soak skewers in water for about 20 minutes so skewers don't burn over heat.
  5. You can grill, broil, or fry in margarine or oil until meat is cooked to your preference-- Make sure chicken and/or pork is cooked through!
  6. Brush meat with leftover marinade while cooking.
  7. Serve with peanut sauce and hot cooked rice, if desired.
  8. For an Antillean flair, serve sliced, fried, cooking bananas (plaintains) too!
  9. YUM!
  10. NOTE: You may use fresh chopped onion and fresh garlic instead of the powder, if desired.
