  • 250 grams flank beef steak sliced thinly against the grain
  • 4 slices white bread Asian style
  • 4 tbsp Butter for spreading on bread
  • ½ tsp vegetable oil

Beef marinade:

Satay Sauce:


  • Slice your steak against the grain and very thinly. Tip: if you freeze the steak for 20-30 minutes, this will allow you to slice the steak very thinly. Transfer beef to a mixing bowl.
  • To the same mixing bowl, add your beef marinade ingredients. Mix with tongs or your hands and then pack the beef into a ball so that the marinade really soaks into the meat. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, whisk together your satay sauce ingredients until well combine. Tip: if you have a food processor or blender, add your ingredients to the blender and then blend until smooth to quicken the pace. Set aside.
  • Next in a non-stick pan set over medium high heat, add cooking oil and your marinated beef. Fry until the edges are brown and the meat is 50-60% cooked, about 5 minutes.
  • Then when the beef is 75% cooked, pour in your satay sauce and mix. Cook for 1-2 minutes until beef is cooked through, no longer red and most the liquids have evaporated.
  • Transfer the beef to a cutting board and finely chop your cooked beef and let it cool so it’s no longer piping hot.
  • Butter all slices of bread from edge to edge.
  • Divide the chopped beef between the two sandwiches. Pile the beef onto one piece of buttered bread and close it off with the other piece. Optional: slice off the corners and slice in half. Enjoy!
