Stir Fried Satay with flashes of brilliance and strokes of genius...!

a2

I've just realised that I have a whole heap of stuff that I never got round to posting. In fact, the only reason I remembered this one was because of a comment I received from my good friend Naomi saying something to the effect that she 'needs' some good chicken stir fry recipes!

This post actually harks back to November 2008 when I posted about the homemade Satay for Sarah's BBQ. Okay, so November really isn't such a long time ago. I did find a whole other heap of stuff that needs to be posted though but we'll get to that eventually.

So.. Stir Fried Satay huh? Is that even possible??

See, when we made the Satay the last time, there was quite a bit of marinated meat left over. Neither the Lovely Wife nor I fancied skewering the meat onto sticks again and neither did we want to set up the BBQ again.

So, in a flash of brilliance, that unfortunately doesn't quite come as often as I think it does, I decided to just stir fry the meat and see how it would turn out. I have to say that it wasn't really a flash of brilliance but more like a Stroke of Genius! It was bloody amazing!

I served it with some cut chillies that gave the meat an added piquancy (or zing if you like!). The bed of lettuce not only made it look pretty, but wrapping the meat up in the lettuce, like a spring roll, was another Stroke of Genius. Or maybe it was a Flash of Brilliance. Whatever.

It was S.U.P.E.R.B!!!

The recipe for the meat marinade is on the Satay Post



I'm also taking this opportunity to play around with uploading photos on Flickr and then linking to them as you get larger photo sizes. Just playing a little...

That looks delicious! Definitely qualifies as strokes of genius. Do you dribble peanut sauce over them?

What a great way to get that satay flavour even off of the stick Dharm!!!!

Now Dharm I do believe this is both genius and brilliant. It looks beautiful from here. My only problem seems to be I can't get my fork into any of those chicken pieces.

That flash of brilliance really shines Dharm. I'll line up behind Naomi for stir-fried chciken recipes...Love the vibrant red chillies!!

MeetaK said...

how gorgeous Dharm! Satay without the stick - this would be perfect for HHDD - Satay!

Dharm said...

Thanks for all the lovely comments. This certainly was a very tasty dish.
Foodycat, No, i didnt dribble sauce over it... just ate it as it was.

Naomi said...

Wow - Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou. Did I already say the Murgh chicken was a big hit at home! Deeeliciousss! Wait till they try this.

Satay chicken would be so easy. They sell the chicken leg all cut into small pieces (for yakitori). So I could do it all in a flash.

Now, to perfect the peanut sauce!.

That's what we love about you Dharm - brilliance, genius and you of course forgot the humility part. :)

Alexandra said...

ohh looks yummy! I can see how stir frying bbq meats instead of skewering them can be appealing ;)

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

Yup, that's absolutely brilliant, man! Good to think out of the box.

What a great idea -- satay without the sticks or the fire, but with all of the flavor, and much, much quicker. That is brilliant!
