Recipe Ingredients for Indonesian Tofu Sates

1/8 cup molasses
1/8 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon peanut or canola oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
21 ounces (about 1 1/2 packages) extra firm tofu, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons hot sauce

Recipe Directions for Indonesian Tofu Sates

  1. Combine kecap manis, soy sauce, garlic, oil, vinegar, cumin and coriander in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade in a medium bowl. Place tofu in a large sealable plastic bag. Pour the remaining marinade into the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.

  2. Add peanut butter, water, ketchup and hot sauce to taste to the reserved marinade and whisk to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  3. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Line a broiler pan or baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.

  4. Remove the tofu from the marinade and thread equal amounts onto six 12-inch skewers. (If using wooden skewers, cover the exposed end of each skewer with foil to prevent burning.) Broil the skewers until the tofu is heated through, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Serve the satÚs with the reserved peanut sauce for dipping.

  7. Ingredient note: Kecap manis is a thick, palm sugar-sweetened soy sauce. It's used as a flavoring, marinade or condiment in Indonesian cooking. Find it in Asian food markets or online at importfood.com. To substitute for kecap manis, whisk 1 part molasses with 1 part reduced-sodium soy sauce.
