How to Make Coriander Beef Satays with Honey Tamarind Glaze


  1. Placed ground beef, ginger, garlic, onion, fresh coriander leaves, ground coriander, turmeric, chili powder, cumin cardamom, salt and pepper in a food processor; pulse until combined. Divide into 8 equal-sized portions. With wet hands, mould each portion round a separate skewer, shaping it into a sausage shape, about 8 inches long.
  2. For the glaze, combine ginger, garlic tamarind and honey.
  3. Lightly oil grill to prevent sticking. Grill over medium-hot coals, brushing with glaze, turning every 2 minutes, until well browned but still juicy (do not overcook), 8-10 minutes.
