Reviews for Peanutty Beef Skewers
"These were good! There?s a delicate balance between not overcooking the meat and applying enough marinade. Don?t marinate TOO frequently or you?ll prevent the sauce from caramelizing on the meat. Your meat will finish cooking before you get those yummy caramelized bits on the meat. Basting only once or twice seemed ideal. Also, I recommend that you avoid over-crowding the meat on the skewers - give the beef room to cook!"
