Spicy Beef Satay

1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak 1″ thick
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup dry sherry
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/4 cup green onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cup water

Place steak in freezer 30 minutes to firm; slice into 1/4″ thick strips. In shallow glass dish, combine soy sauce, sherry, sesame oil, onion, garlic, sugar, ginger and 1/2 tsp of the red pepper flakes. Add beef strips; turn to coat with marinade. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours. Soak twenty-four 8″ bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes. Drain beef; reserve 2 Tbl marinade. Thread beef strips, accordion-style, on skewers.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine reserved marinade, remaining 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, the peanut butter and water. Heat over low heat 8 to 10 minutes or until sauce is thick and warm (add more water if necessary). Grill kabobs, on uncovered grill, over medium-hot briquets 2 minutes. Turn and cook 2 minutes longer. Serve beef strips with sauce. NOTE: Assembled kabobs may be refrigerated, covered, 1 to 2 hours before grilling.
