- Place onion, garlic, kecap manis, coriander, cumin, sambal oelek, red wine and water in a food processor and blend to a smooth paste. Pour marinade into a large glass or ceramic bowl.

"Outstanding recipe! My husband is from The Netherlands and he is also Indonesian. During our last family reunion the family made us a wonderful Indonesian meal and the Sate was my favorite, his too. ..." See more I really like the kecap manis and the sambal oelek. These are common ingredients in Dutch supermarkets as Indonesians are historically a part of the Dutch community. I recommend this recipe as it is very authentic. I also recommend preparing a peanut sauce to go with it as I have never had it without, whether in a restaurant or at my in-law's home. The peanut sauce should be specifically an Indonesian sauce as it is a wonderful flavor of sweet and spicy. It is much different than Thai Sate and peanut sauce, it's thicker for one. Just my opinion but after having the Indonesian version at my family's home I haven't ordered the Thai version since. My husband is very lucky to have grown up eating this type of food!"
"Wow, this was one terrific recipe. So flavorful and delicious. I made the marinade exactly as published using vadalia onion, and marinated my beef about 10 hours. I skewered them alternating vadali..." See morea onion with the beef, and hubs grilled to perfection. Served with a prepared thai (ok, I know it's not completely authentic!) spicy peanut sauce, jasmine rice and thai green beans. Soooo good, and a company worthy summer meal. Loved this. Many thanks for sharing your recipe!"
