Glazed Asian Beef Kabobs
Serves: 8 skewers
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp mirin (Japanese cooking wine which can be found in your local grocery store)
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 lb sirloin steak, sliced thinly
  • green onion, sliced in large pieces
  • ½ cup onion, cut into large thin pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into medium pieces
  • skewers
  1. *Preheat the oven to broil. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes.*
  2. Combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin, sugar, garlic, and ginger in a large ziplock bag. Shake to mix.
  3. Add the thinly sliced sirloin into the bag and shake to mix. Let marinade for 30 minutes to an hour. Reserve the marinade.
  4. Add a slice of the green onion to your skewer, followed by a piece of onion, bell pepper, and a piece of beef folded over (so the skewer pierces it twice). Repeat three times. Place the skewers on a large baking sheet.
  5. Broil on high for 4 minutes, then bake at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until beef is done and vegetables are tender.
  6. While the skewers are cooking, whisk together the reserved marinade and 1 tsp of cornstarch. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  7. Remove the skewers and brush with the thickened marinade. Serve hot with rice.
