Grilled Lemongrass Beef Skewers

Thursday, 19 May 2011 07:30

Shiregate FarmsThis month Adam is highlighting his new partnership with Shire Gate Farms with this fantastic recipe. Adam supports grass-fed beef for its Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) content due to its ability to graze on what nature intended. CLA is your performance enhancer acting as an anti-inflammatory, fat burner and lean muscle grassbuilder.

Grass-fed beef requires quick cooking times and that fits this dish perfectly. All you need is a hot grill some Shire Gate Sirloin and a few minutes cooking time. Traveling through SE Asia is a gastronomic adventure with roadside food stands the whole way. This dish will take you there.

  • 3 stalks Lemongrass, trimmed and minced
  • 3 cloves Garlic,
  • 2 Shallots, chopped
  • 2 Scallions, trimmed and chopped

  • 2 T Lime Juice
  • 2 T Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 1 1/2 T Water
  • Sea Salt
  • 2 Serrano Chiles (optional)
  • 1 Pound Shire Gate Farm Sirloin

In food processor add Lemongrass and Garlic and blend. Add shallots, scallions, ginger and chiles and blend. Add remaining ingredients and pulse to a runny paste.

Thinly slice Beef crosswise against grain, a little less than a 1Ž4 inch. Add beef to marinade and let sit 2-3 hours. At the same time soak skewers in water. Thread beef slices onto skewers lengthwise.
