One thing I constantly miss during the early stages of the Dukan Diet is Asian take-out, and my weakness is Thai food. To help I like to recreate my favorite Thai dishes at home where I have control of the ingredients. This simple recipe is a take on traditional Beef Satay using an Asian inspired marinade. During later phases you can also thread veggies on the skewers as well. Peppers, onions, and squash work great.
