Grilled Berries and Pound Cake with Bourdon-Butterscotch Sauce

Beef Satay with Thai Coconut-Peanut Sauce
This recipe is ideal for leaner and tougher cuts of beef such as flank, skirt, or hangar steak, as well as thin cuts of round. Thinly slicing and marinating helps tenderize and add flavor to the meat.
