Elk Sate (Satay) with Peanut Sauce
by Bobbie Jo

Elk striploin is marinated for 24 hours, then quickly grilled and drizzled with a simple peanut sauce for a play on an Indonesian favorite. I made it a main course with coconut milk rice and steamed edamame with chili flakes and black pepper! Meats on a stick are the perfect food.  
 
It can also be served as a buffet appetizer by placing the skewers on a bed of dry roasted peanuts along with a small bowl of peanut sauce.
