How to Make It

Step 1

Soak skewers in water at least 30 minutes.

Step 3

Combine remaining 3 tablespoons each soy sauce and mirin, remaining 1 tablespoon sake, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Simmer 5 to 8 minutes or until glaze is slightly syrupy. Set aside.

Step 4

Combine green onions and sesame oil; toss well. Thread green onion pieces and beef alternately onto skewers. Cover and chill until ready to grill.

Step 5

Grill skewers over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 1 minute. Turn skewers over; brush with glaze, and grill 1 to 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.

The sauce for this recipe is SO good! It has a sweetness to it. I didn't have sake on hand so I just used white wine (Pinot Grigio) instead. These cook fast so it is great to throw on the grill and serve as an appetizer.
