    • Satay Lamb or Beef

      This is a home made low carb satay recipe, it's really yum. We have used it for beef, lamb and chicken. We make it mild for Maya but you can make it as hot as you want to. I have mine on top of veggies.
      The recipe that Garry based this around used sweet chilli sauce, he has reduced it to just 20ml, if you look around some have less sugar in them and you can also buy sugar free one such as Ayam brand which is in supermarkets or you could make your own (pretty sure we have some recipes), I prefer to avoid the sugar free ones because of the artificial sweeteners. Otherwise, its just the sweet and chilli you're after so you could easily add your preferred sweetener and chilli to taste. Garry used this recipe as a guide, we get 4-6 serves from this. Next time we have the chicken one I will take a photo and add it to the chicken section but it will be exactly the same except it will use chicken thighs.

      1 red capsicum (pepper), sliced
