Japanese Beef and Green Onion Skewers (Yakitori)
Kids love these little beef skewers, with their sweet/salty glaze of soy, mirin and sugar.
3 T Soy Sauce
3 T Mirin
3 T Sugar
2 tsp Rice Wine Vinegar
1½ lb Boneless Sirloin Steak
1½ lb Beef Tenderloin
2 Green Onion Bunches
¼ tsp Kosher Salt
5 tsp Peanut Oil
- Bring soy sauce, mirin, sugar and vinegar to a boil in a small, heavy saucepan. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 to 7 minutes, until slightly syrupy.
- Toss beef cubes with 1 teaspoon oil in a small bowl. Toss green onions with remaining 1 teaspoon oil and salt in a second bowl. Thread beef and onions onto skewers, using 3 onion sections between each piece of beef.
- Prepare a grill or heat a grill pan to medium-high. Lightly oil. Grill skewers 1 minute, turn, and grill 1 minute on second side. Brush with glaze, grill 1 minute more, turning, and brushing skewers with additional glaze. Transfer to a serving platter, and brush lightly with glaze again.
