Beef Satay Skewers

Grilled potatoes with Bangkok seasoning +
Grilled sweet potatoes +
Tomatoes from the Farmer's market +
Beef from Paul's friend of a friend "Kobe" beef farm +
Peanut Satay Sauce +
= a great Sunday night grilled dinner

Ever since I had sweet potato fries at Cafe Hollander with peanut satay sauce, it has been a flavor combination I love (with the exception of the pumpkin sweet potato peanut butter soup I made a few years ago...clearly an anomaly).
Satay Sauce (this is the blobblish thing in the middle of the plate above)
adapted from Weber's Big Book of Grilling
5 chives, chopped
1/3 c ketchup
1/4 c soy sauce
2 T brown sugar
lime juice freshly squeezed from 3 key limes (about 3 T)
1 t fresh ginger, minced
1 t garlic, minced
1/4 t crushed red pepper flakes
Mix all of the above together and heat on stove until blended.  Remove from heat and add:
1/4 c creamy peanut butter
Paul sprinkled the Bangkok seasoning on the meat before skewering and grilling it.  I did the same to the par-boiled potatoes before grilling.  Ah...sweet seasoning...just par-boiled and grilled. And nothing beats a locally grown tomato in the summer!
