1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cups bean sprouts

For the satay sauce:

⅓ cup crunchy peanut butter juice of ½ a lime
1 tablespoon reduced-salt soy sauce
1 tablespoon chilli sauce
2 tablespoons warm water



    1. Combine steak, ginger, garlic and soy sauce in a large bowl and toss until well coated. Place twelve wooden skewers in a shallow dish of cold water. Set steak and skewers aside for 10 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, prepare the satay sauce by combining all ingredients in a medium bowl.
