Serves 4 (serving size: 2 skewers, 2/3 cup rice, and 2/3 cup slaw)

Have your little helpers mix up the glaze, while older kids can help skewer the beef.


How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes or until reduced to 1/4 cup, stirring frequently.

Step 2

Combine coleslaw, oil, juice, sugar, ginger, chile, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and onions in a bowl; toss.

Step 3

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Thread beef evenly onto 8 (8-inch) skewers. Arrange skewers on pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Brush soy sauce mixture over skewers; sprinkle with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Heat rice according to package directions. Serve skewers over rice with slaw.

Needs tweaking

The glaze was delicious (albeit a little salty even with low sodium soy). Sirloin just doesn't do it for me in this format. Would have been great doing a flank and then glazing last minute and slicing thin. Would make glaze again to do that. Slaw was good, would have preferred a 1:1 with regular oil and sesame, it was a little over powering.

Satisfying dinner

Typically we are not fans of sirloin; too tough.  So I cut the steaks into strips and marinated the strips in the sauce for about 5 hours, turning occasionally.  After threading the meat onto the skewers, I boiled the sauce to drizzle over the skewers and rice just before serving.  Grilled the skewers on our Traeger, 7 minutes per side.  The meat came out quite tender and flavorful.  The slaw was good too.  I substituted garlic chili sauce for the pepper.  A sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds completed the meal.  Hubby loved it.  Will make again.

Awesome slaw

I made the slaw only, looking for a non-mayo option to serve with grilled ham.  This recipe has a nice sweet heat and lively freshness from the lime juice.  I used chili garlic sauce instead of the red chili pepper.  Sliced green onions and chopped peanuts were added for more texture (not that it needed more).  I will happily make this again!
