  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

  • 1 tablespoon shoyu (soy sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 package fresh or frozen betel leaves

Directions

Special equipment: Metal skewers or wooden skewers, soaked for 20 to 30 minutes

Preheat the grill. 

Combine the beef, lemongrass, five-spice, curry powder, garlic, oyster sauce, cracked black pepper, ground black pepper, shallots, soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar, olive oil and salt in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
