"Very good!! This one is a keeper and I think I'll also try it with chicken."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 23, 2011

"I've served this to many people and everyone loved it! I made the dipping sauce the first time, but wasn't impressed with it, so I make it without. The skewers don't need the sauce anyway, they are GREAT!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 17, 2011

"Well to be honest, the kids thought there was too much of a lime taste, and my boyfriend didn't like the dipping sauce, but I'm writting this review - I loved everything about this and couldn't give it any less stars than a top rating! Very packed with flavor and the dip gives such a unique taste to every bite. I liked the dip so much I poured a little on my rice and enjoyed it a new way!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2010

"I made this to use a can of coconut milk I had in the pantry. I thought for sure my boyfriend would hate it because he frowned at the coconut milk can and doesn't care much for curry powder. He absolutely loved it and wants me to make it again! We both weren't fond of the dipping sauce, so I'll just make the marinade for the beef and serve it over jasmine rice! YUM!"
