Oriental Steak Skewers

Just plain yummy. These are fit for company. Served with a creamy mustard sauce. Adapted from TOH. The instructions are based on my cut of meat and may vary depending on how many slices of meat you get. The recipe said 16 slices but I only got 8. I doubled the marinade when I made it but not in the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut beef widthwise into 8 slices, 1/4 inches thick. Then cut in half, longwise (You should have long strips about 2 inches wide.).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar and ginger.
  3. Add the beef making sure the meat is covered.

Loved...loved...loved these tasty little bundles...the flavors just pop in your mouth...they to take some time to prepare...but isn't that what cooking is all about...I was out of yellow peppers so used red instead...the horseradish mixture is tasty...but both hubby and I felt it wasn't needed...in fact it took away from the flavor of the meat...this is going in my best of 2013 cookbook...thanks for posting the recipe...=)

5+ Stars!!! I think I cut my steak wrong, but who cares...this was delicious. I had extra little pieces of meat that I tacked on to the skewer...everything was fabulous! I forgot to take a pic of the horseradish sauce, but it is wonderful as well. I marinaded for 6 hours, and this was tender and fabulous tasting. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe.

It is quite rare for me to prepare steak and this was a wonderful way to enjoy this indulgence. I took a chance and made the marinade with Splenda allowing the meat to soak overnight before cooking in the broiler. Though the preparation was a little fussy, the results were delicious and fun to eat. I can envision making little single bundles on toothpicks for a party. Thanks!
