Beef Satay with Sesame Ginger Sauce

This is a very simple recipe and very good!  I have doubled or tripled the recipe easily for a main course.  I found the sesame-ginger sauce in the Asian food aisle at HEB.

Ingredients  (4 appetizer portions)  
16 oz. beef tenderloin tips
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. lime juice
4 tbsp. sesame-ginger sauce (store bought)
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
8 bamboo skewers

Marinate the beef tenderloin tips in the soy sauce, lime juice and sesame-ginger sauce for about 20 minutes covered in the refrigerator.

Thread the beef on the skewers and grill the beef satays over fire-grill until the desired doneness.

Drizzle the grilled beef satays with some more of the sesame-ginger sauce and sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds over them.
