Assalaamu alaikum warahmatullaah,
Yay! After a long long time of craving for the finest “Tausug Satti” I finally got to have heeeeeeeaps of ’em lastnight and today for breakfast Alhamdulillaah. My aunt brought it with her along with other yummy native Tausug tummy fillers. Her flight from Zamboanga was about 10:30AM I think, so my uncle had to wake up really early and headed for Jimmy’s Satti Haus! (not paid) Awww I feel so special TabaarakAllaah for their kindness.
Ok, enough with that melodramatic scene! Let’s get to business here. So yeah, the Tausug Satti is sorta related to the Malayisan or Indonesian Satay but not quite. A Tausug Satti comes in 3 items so if you lack 1, dream on! You’re not eating the actual thing.
First, there’s the “Ta’mu” this is the rice where it is cooked inside layers of young coconut leaves shaped into squares or diamonds.
Second, the cute lil tiny grilled or barbecued diced beef on a stick. I normally don’t eat beef ’cause the meat reminds me of the human flesh but this one is really cut into small bits so it’s fine. Some would serve it with chicken instead of beef.
aand the last but definitely the highlight of this menu is the thick, sweet ‘n’ spicy sauce.
How to eat ’em? You just simply chuck everything in the sauce. The “Ta’mu” ofcourse without the leaves, the beef and let it swim there.
Inshaa’Allaah I’ll post the sauce’s ingredients and the how-to-make-the-ta’mu here soon, so watch out for it!
