Beef Satay Balls

In 2001 our family got the opportunity to live Malaysia for 4 months. We enjoyed Chicken Satay and other recipes made with peanuts. Here is a fun spin on Satay using ground beef. I have taken these Beef Satay Balls to a potluck and it got rave reviews.

Beef Satay Balls
~2.25 lbs of lean Ground Beef
1 Tablespoon Corn Meal
1.5 teaspoons Sesame Oil
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
2-3 cloves Garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon grated Ginger (or Ginger Powder)
3/4 cup Peanut Butter
1.5 teaspoons Sugar

Mix all ingredients. I have found that just digging in and using my hands works best. It will look like this.
Make large meatballs and put them on a cookie sheet. I prefer to use a broiler pan so that any fat from the meat drips down.

Bake @ 350 degrees for 15-20 mins. Serve over rice. The meatballs look dry and plain, but they taste divine!

BONUS: Not only do they make a good lunch the next day, they still taste GREAT!
