19.08.2012 - Batam. Is that time of the Year, the 1st Day of Hari Raya / Lebaran!! :) Satay Beef and Chicken is my ultimate dishes on Raya Menu. Its simply easy and delicious.
The reason why i don't use skewers for my so called satay, because i forgotten to buy them.. Sometimes, when we get so desperate for something, everything works my way. Without skewer I just pan fried the meat slowly with little oil on a normal non stick pan not on grill pan cos i don't have that either! LOL, no one knows that you cheats. Because the Taste and Texture is all the same and came out perfectly delicious!! I served with Peanut Sauce and Ketupat.
