Wolfgang's Beef Sate With Spicy Szechwan Sauce
Wolfgang Puck's Spicy Skewers
Wolfgang Puck shared his recipe for Oscar night: Beef Sate With Spicy Szechwan Sauce.
Cut the steak into 24, 3 x 1 inch strips, each weighing about 1/2 ounce. Using 24, 6-inch bamboo skewers, stick a skewer into each strip lengthwise and arrange on a large platter or baking pan. Refrigerate until needed.
Prepare the marinade: In a small bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients and pour over the meat, turning to coat all sides. Let marinate, un-refrigerated, about 15 minutes.
Preheat the grill or broiler while the steak is marinating.
Prepare the sauce: In a small skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add the garlic and green onion and sauté over medium-high until soft, about 2 minutes. pour in the stock, soy sauce, and chili pepper flakes, and cook 1 or 2 minutes longer. Strain into a clean pan and whisk in the remaining 4 tablespoons butter, Keep warm.
Arrange the skewers of steak on the grill or under the broiler* being careful that the bare ends of the skewers are not directly over (or under) the flame. Grill until medium rare, about 30 to 40 seconds on each side.
Presentation: Pour the sauce into a small bowl and set in the center of a large serving platter. Arrange the skewers around the bowl and serve immediately.
Tip: Bring your broiler tray directly under the flame for best results.
