(Recipe edited Sept 2011). Sosaties are not just any old kebabs. They're lamb meat on skewers, but they are marinated in a distinctive aromatic Malay-style sauce. Because lean leg of lamb is the meat of choice, we prefer to also thread a few fattier pork strips on the skewers. Our S A lamb has no smell, or sometimes just a delicious, faint herb aroma from the bushes they graze on. This is also one of our heirloom pioneer dishes, because the sosaties in this sauce can last for days without refrigeration. (We don't do that these days!) Absolutely meant for grilling -- but do not let it dry out! Five minutes, then switch the grid, and 5 minutes more over fairly hot coals should do it. Ideal picnic or camping food.
