Spider rig steaks & a red peanut curry sauce

I have really been enjoying using the spider rig from Ceramic Grill store!

That little difference in distance from the coals makes a huge difference. I'm using it with a Craycort 14.5" grate

I'm working on a red peanut curry sauce for beef that is similar to Evil Jungle Princess sauce from Ling and Louie's. Anyone have any good ideas for such a sauce?

Here's my first attempt:
1 Tbsp butter
1 small shallot, finely diced
1/2 cup Mr. Yoshida's Original sauce (yeriyaki)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 Tbsp sriracha sauce
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp red pepper flake
1/4 tsp curry powder
2 Tbsp cream of coconut (not coconut milk)

Saute the shallot in butter for 2-3 minutes.

Whisk in the other ingredients in and simmer for until thickened, about 5 minutes.

Very good but needs some tweaking to be perfect. I'm thinking adding garlic and using curry paste instead of powder.

    All I can say is the plated pic looks like something that belongs in a gourmet magazine - WOW! :)

    Nice fillets in the first two pics..WHY? :huh:

    Those are some of the Manhattan fillet I did over the weekend, actually cut from a strip loin. The third pic is also one of those two.

    Is that what you were asking?

    Thanks. I thought it was kind of boring since there were no sides. I was really just testing out the sauce.

    No,I was wonderin why you needed any sauce on those BEAUTIFUL steaks! ;)
  • NibbleMeThisNibbleMeThis Posts: 2,278
    Yeah but the sauce still needs a little something. I'll be trying a few variations of this until I get that right balance.

    Funny thing is Alexis thought it was perfect as is but she had just come home from her shift at the hospital so she would have eaten anything :laugh:

    Ohhh I thought you were asking about the cut :laugh:

    Yeah, I am a big proponent of "a good steak doesn't need much other than pepper, salt and fire". But I was just craving the sauce I had in Arizona, I had all those fillets on hand, and thought I'd play around.

    Chris that sounds very appetizing, good thing is always being able to adjust to your taste
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,600
    Understandable! Nothing wrong with tantalizing the palate! ;)

    Looks very good. I like using the spider for steaks, burgers, etc. also.
