This is an easy party food that you can prepare ahead of time, and cook the day of.
Lemongrass Beef Skewers
1140g beef chuck (2.5 lbs)
1 tsp salt
1 stick lemongrass
5 cloves garlic
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp soy sauce
Jeow Bong Mayo
1 tbsp Jeow Bong
1/2 cup Hellmann's Mayonnaise
Sesame seeds for garnish
Wash and peel the outer layer of the lemongrass stalk, finely slice it. Pound it with the garlic cloves and salt into a paste in a mortar and pestle.
Slice the beef into long thin strips. In a mixing bowl, add the lemongrass-garlic-salt paste, oyster sauce, soy sauce brown sugar. Marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Weave 2-3 strips onto the skewers, and spread along the skewer to flatten. Cook on medium-high for approximately 2 minutes on each side. The cooking time will depend on how thick you sliced your beef.
Mix together the Jeow Bong and Mayo, and arrange the skewers on a platter. Garnish with sesame seeds, and micro greens. Serve with vegetable chips - instructions for that coming later this week.
If you are having a party, you might also want to serve some crispy oven baked chicken wings.
