Directions:

  1. Put all the ingredients for the marinade in a blender or a food processor, and blend until smooth. Put the beef pieces in a plastic freezer bag and pour in the marinade, mix together, and seal. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  2. Thread the beef onto metal skewers, allowing about 5 pieces on each skewer and reserving the marinade. Set aside while you make the peanut sauce.
  3. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Add the peanut butter, and continue cooking over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens into a sauce. Keep warm.
  4. Heat the barbecue or charcoal grill until hot. Grill the beef skewers for 5 minutes, turning frequently. Leave to rest for a few minutes, then serve with the warm peanut sauce on the side for dipping.
