Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce {South Beach Friendly - Phase 1}

Another adaptation on a recipe from The South Beach Diet's Taste of Summer cookbook. I ate it all myself, but you can share if you're in the mood.

1 -2 servings.

6oz grilling steak
2 cloves minced garlic
juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon trans fat free peanut butter
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
red pepper flakes to taste

Slice steak in 1/4" strips. Combine garlic, lime juice, ginger, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Add steak and mix. Set aside on the counter for about 20 minutes.

Mix remaining ingredients together and set aside.

You can put the steak strips on skewers if you wish, but I found it easier just to leave them as they were. Preheat a nonstick pan over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the steak strips. You may have to do it in batches. Cook for 1-2 minutes then flip. Cook for another minute or two then remove from the pan. Let rest for a few minutes then serve with peanut dipping sauce.

Tip: This recipe would also work with chicken breast.
