Grilled foods are the most anticipated thing I look forward to eating all summer. I just love it. Something about being outside, enjoying time with friends, the flavorful marinades…. it is way more than just about food. Grilling out is a laid back and easy going summer staple.
Asian flavors have always appealed to me and this recipe is quick, easy, and packs a punch of asian inspired flavors. To make simply combine:
- 1/2 cup ponzu (citrus soy sauce available in most grocery stores)
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp freshly peeled and grated ginger
- 1/4 tbsp rice wine vinegar (white wine vinegar is a fine substitute)
Divide marinade to coat 1lb of top sirloin cut into 2-4 inch cubes and veggies of choice diced or sliced to be easily skewered.
I like to marinate my veggies (squash, cherry tomato, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, etc) in a separate bowl than the meat. This way I can baste the skewers while they are on the grill with the extra from the veggie bowl.
While grilling, I love to baste. I sauce these bad boys up while they cook for about 4 minutes or so per side. I cook these on the top rack of the grill so that the veggies don’t over cook and have some texture to them instead of being burnt or mushy.
While the kebabs are on the grill, rice is an easy side to accompany this and does really well at soaking up the asian marinade.
