Asian Beef Kebabs
We’re meat-o-saurs’s here in our household, there is usually only one night a week where we eat a meatless meal. Usually we stick to chicken and turkey but 1-2x a week we have beef. The weekend is usually when we partake in one of our favorite foods, but steak dinner gets old every week. I found a recipe on Pinterest for Korean BBQ Beef from Six Sister’s Stuff and thought it would be a delicious addition to our meal plan. A few weeks went by and I finally decided to get the ingredients that would work for us, made some adjustments and made these Asian Beef Kebabs.
They turned out amazing, and I will be making them again. Since I’m on a very low carb, high protein diet I didn’t make them how I usually would (with red peppers and red onion) but I added them in the ingredient list below. Next time around, I will be making them with those particular veggies. Like all recipes, this one is fairly flexible with herbs and spices. Fresh basil would be another delicious addition. As you can tell, I used the baby version of pear juice – in all fairness, it really doesn’t matter what you use. Six Sister’s Stuff used rice wine vinegar, but I didn’t have any. Regular vinegar would work just as well (may have a little bit of a different flavor but it would tenderize the meat a great deal).[re
Asian Beef Kebabs
- 1 - 1 1/2lb stew meat
- 1/2 cup pear juice
- 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 heaping tbsp brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp Sriracha
- 2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1-2 red bell peppers (depending on size)
- 1 red onion
- Skewers (wooden or metal)
- Prepare your veggies first, cube them so they can be evenly cooked on the skewer. If you are using wooden skewers make sure they have been sitting in water for at least an hour before hand.
- In a bowl combine all of your ingredients (adding the beef last) and marinate all day. If you're like me, and just read this now as you are preparing dinner, let it marinate for at least an hour (the long the better).
- Skewer a piece of meat, onion, meat, pepper or whatever order you prefer.
- Grill on a preheated BBQ for 3-4 minutes on each side.
Note: if using wooden skewers remember to soak them in water for at least an hour, otherwise they will burn up on the grill.
This recipe is amazing and I know that you will enjoy it. If you’re super lazy (like I am most of the time) this would be a great marinate for a different take on steak dinner or you could use my red wine steak marinade (I highly recommend this one).
