How to Make Indonesian - Babi & Sate Ayam Bumbu Kecap/Kacang


  1. The Sticks:
    Remember to soak those bamboo skewers in water for at least 1 - 2 hours to prevent them from burning
  2. It is best to get meat with a good amount of fat in it; the fatty bits will make the sate tender and juicy.
  3. The Marinade:
    Cut your meat into bite sized cubes first, then add all marinating ingredients.

    Marinate for a few hours, or for best result, let it marinate overnight in the fridge.
  4. The Skewering:
    The next day, stick the meat cubes with the bamboo skewers.

    I stick 4-5 pieces of meat cubes per sate.

    If you’re using meat with fatty bits, mix fatty and lean meat cubes in each skewer.
  5. The Grilling and Basting:
    Before grilling, squeeze a bit of lime juice over the sate.

    Grill them on a charcoal grill, which is the best scenario or simply preheat oven to 200C, place the sate sticks on a baking sheet and grill them until you see some burnt bits.
  6. Peanut Sauce:
    Process everything in a food processor until well mixed.
  7. To Serve:
    Place the peanut sauce on a plate, add a dash of fish sauce, drizzle generously with kecap manis, and squeeze juice of a lime.

    Feel free to add one of two freshly chopped chilies in the sauce.

    Bathe your freshly grilled sate in the sauce and serve (with steamed rice or lontong/rice cakes - optional).
