Teriyaki is one of those flavors that everyone loves. Plus, it can be used on basically any meat. Well today ,I have an awesome grilling recipe that combines that teriyaki flavor with flank steak (AKA London Broil) to make bbq beef teriyaki skewers.
The key to using flank steak is to be sure to slice against the grain to maximize tenderness. This flavorful cut of beef works perfect for marinades which can even add more tenderness.
The meat get to soak in a simple homemade teriyaki sauce that also gets basted on during the cooking process. The end result is tender flavorful skewers of beef!
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1 Tbsp mirin (found in the Asian food section of the store)
- 1 Tbsp garlic
- 1 tsp mince ginger
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1 flank steak
- In a sauce pan, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar,honey, mirin, garlic, ginger, cornstarch and water. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened. Allow sauce to cool.
- Trim fat from steak and slice across the grain into into 1/4-inch strips. Add the beef to a gallon sized ziploc bag. Add in 1 cup of the cooled sauce: seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
- Loosely thread meat strips onto metal or soaked wooden skewers. Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat while basting with remaining sauce for 7-10 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness. Serves 4-6/
