  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger (grated)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons asian red chili sauce (like sambal oelek or sriracha)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro (minced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon habanero pepper (finely minced, to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 lime (juiced)
  • 1-1/2lb skirt steak (1/2-inch thick slices)
  • 1 " water
  • 1 cup Artisana Macadamia Butter
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cumin


For marinade, mash together the onion, garlic, ginger and sugar using mortar & pestle or food processor. Or - if you have chopped your ginger, garlic and onion fine enough, no need to do anything further. Add this mixture into a resealable bag. To the same bag, add in the red chili paste, cilantro, soy sauce, sesame oil and lime juice. Massage to mix well. Add in the beef strips. Marinate 1-2 hours or up to overnight. In the meantime, prepare the Habanero Peanut Sauce.
When ready to cook, heat grill to high, direct heat. Thread beef onto bamboo skewers.
Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side while continuously basting with marinade. Serve with habanero peanut sauce (below).
Whisk together all ingredients until smooth. If the sauce is too thick, whisk in an additional tablespoon of hot water.
