There's a very good reason why satay (and especially Thai satay) is a perennial crowd pleaser. Whether at a family gathering, a pot-luck, or any party occasion, these satay dishes will definitely steal the show. My experience has been that these delectable savory treats on sticks are always the first to go. There never seems to be enough, while the other dishes politely play the bridesmaids. Word of caution - you will always be asked to make more. Not a problem though. Try these recipes, and you will see how easy (and fun!) it is to serve up a batch of tasty chicken, beef, pork or tofu satay.
