How to Make สะเต๊ะไก่

How to Make สะเต๊ะไก่

Step 1

If using pork, start with nice thick pork loin chops with very little fat. Trim off the any fat that there is, and lay the chop flat on your cutting board. Cut into nice even slices about 1/4 inch thick.

If using chicken, start with some nice plump boneless, skinless chicken breast. Cut them lengthwise into thin strips.

Step 7

Whisk the coconut milk, sugar, salt, turmeric powder and salt together with the mashed herbs and seeds in a small bowl, then let it sit for about 5 minutes. After sitting, stir it up well again, then pour the mixture over the meat and mix it in well.

Step 8

Allow it to sit and marinate at room temperature for about 3 - 4 hours, or overnight in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, if using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least an hour. This keeps them from burning when you cook the meat, but also keeps them from absorbing all the moisture and drying out the meat.

Step 9

Thread the meat slices onto the skewers, keeping the meat as flat as possible.

Step 10

Cook on a grill or barbeque for about 1 - 2 minutes on each side. Don't overcook, as the meat should be soft and juicy.
