If you love satay, then you need to give this slow cooker satay beef a try. It’s packed full of flavor and guaranteed to please even the fussiest of eaters.

Slow Cooker Satay Beef

The satay sauce is pretty straightforward for this recipe. It combines several ingredients such as peanuts, soy, brown sugar and more for a delicious rich sauce that will leave you wanting more.

Satay or sate originates from Indonesian cuisine but can be found all across the world today. This recipe is inspired by the traditional satay recipe that is usually skewered and marinated.

When choosing a cut of beef for this dish try and pick something cheap like rump steak. Rump is also known as sirloin (America) so depending on which country you’re in it might go by different names.

Much like most slow cooker beef recipes, the beef in this dish will cook to be incredibly tender, so a tougher cut of meat works perfectly.

Satay Beef

There are quite a few sides that you’re able to have with this dish. For example, some egg noodles or similar goes perfectly with this. If you want to try something different, then mashed potato works quite well too. Alternatively, just plain rice works exceptionally well with this dish.

If you find yourself with leftovers, then make sure you don’t go throwing it out as they will reheat quite nicely. I recommend just keeping it in the fridge, but you can freeze it if you wish for it to last longer.

Cooking Tips

  • The red chili flakes can be left out if you don’t like spicy food. It is also perfect to leave the chili out if you need to feed kids.
  • If you need to feed a lot of people, then you can easily just double the recipe. You can try only increasing the meat, but you might not end up with enough sauce, so I recommend doubling all the ingredients.
  • You’re able to skip browning the meat if you’re running low on time. There shouldn’t be a huge difference, but I recommend doing it if you have the time.
