Teriyaki Beef Skewers & Grilled Pineapple

 My favorite kind of recipes are fast, simple, and easy. This one is all 3!
I found it through Pinterest from Indulgy. I would suggest this to anyone who is looking for a fun, easy summer dinner. It was great because we ate them as they came off the grill while the kids played in the back yard. No plates or silverware needed! Perfect, summer night.
First, soak your wooden skewers for at least 30 minutes so they wont burn.
You can use a cookie sheet filled with a thin layer of water.

Next, slice your steak thinly, to about 1/4 inch pieces, 
and thread them onto the skewers. Salt and pepper to taste.
Then combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, mirin, minced garlic, and minced ginger and bring to a boil. Combine the cornstarch and water and add to the soy sauce mixture to thicken it. 

 

Cook the skewers on the grill for a couple minutes on each side, coating them generously with the marinade.
 
 You can sprinkle them with sesame seeds once you've finished grilling them, but I didn't have any on hand so I skipped that step. I didn't miss them.
 
 Then enjoy! Thing 1 loved them!

We couldn't resist grilling up some pineapple at the same time, it's one of our favorite things! All we do is slice it up, skewer it, and grill it.

 
 Thing 1 ate a boatload :)

Next time I think I will marinade the steak with the Teriyaki glaze. It can only get better! This was a great, simple, delicious recipe!

BBQ Beef Teriyak
1 flank steak 
salt & pepper
16 bbq skewers 

Teriyaki Glaze 
2 tsp sesame oil
1 cup soy sauce 
1/2 cup brown sugar 
2 Tbsp honey 
1 Tbsp mirin 
1 Tbsp garlic, minced 
1 tsp ginger, minced 
1 Tbsp cornstarch 
1/4 cup cold water 

Slice the steak. Combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, mirin, garlic, and ginger and bring to a boil. Combine the cornstarch and water and add to the teriyaki mixture. Stir until thickened. Keep a cup of the marinade to use for glazing, and use the rest to marinade the meat for at least 30 minutes.

Soak the skewers for at least 30 minutes before threading the meat onto the skewers. Grill for a couple minutes on each side, flipping and glazing with the leftover marinade until cooked through. You can sprinkle sesame seeds over the glazed beef if you'd like. Then enjoy!
