Satay Brothers at the Atwater Market, Montreal


If you are in Quebec, you have to go to the food stand of the Satay Brothers at Montreal's Atwater Market:


Here is one of my favorite SE Asian recipes (taking some liberties w/ authenticity, but it works great as an appetizer or entree):

Sweet Chile Glazed Beef Lettuce Cups

Quantity Produced:  Serves 6-8 (appetizer portions)

Braised Beef Shortribs, Boneless                                  3 #
Favorite Asian Spice Mix or Salt/Pepper                      To Taste
Vegetable Oil, for cooking                                           2-3 Tablespoons
Water or Broth                                                            2-3 Cups

Sweet Chile Sauce (See Recipe)                                   1 Cup

Nuoc Cham Dipping Sauce (See Recipe)                    As Needed (optional)

To Serve:
Lettuce Cups (Bibb or Lil Gem), Washed                   12-14
Fresh Cilantro, Mint & Basil                                        12-14 Sprigs
Lime Wedges                                                              1 Lime

Preparation Procedure-
Heat a heavy bottomed skillet or braising pan. Add oil, and when hot seasoned beef short ribs. Brown thoroughly on all sides and remove from heat. Cover with water (at least ¾ way up beef) and place lid or foil over pan. Bake in 350˚ oven for 3-4 hours or until tender. Carefully remove from liquid and allow to cool. When cool, cut into 1” cubes, place on greased sheet pan and drizzle with sweet chile sauce. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until glazed with sauce. (optional: may skewer beef after glazing and before placing in lettuce cups).

In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, water, fish sauce, lime juice, garlic, chiles, carrot, vinegar and chile sauce.

Serve sliced beef in lettuce cup with cilantro, lime and table sauce.
