Ponzu Marinaded Beef Skewers

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. IMG_2914.JPG

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. IMG_2915.JPG
