Prep Time
45 Mins
4 servings (serving size: 1 kebab)

Soybean-based hoisin sauce is a spicy-sweet Chinese condiment. Spiked here with honey, seasoned rice vinegar, ginger, and chile paste with garlic, it makes a tasty base for a barbecue sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add beef to bowl; toss well to coat. Let stand at room temperature 20 minutes.

Step 3

Thread 4 beef cubes, 4 onion pieces, and 4 tomatoes alternately onto each of 4 (12-inch) skewers. Place kebabs on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

This was neither good nor bad, just o.k, I will not be making it again because I have better recipes. The glaze was not very flavorful.

I wound up marinating the steak overnight, unintentionally - last minute, we decided to eat out, after I had put the steak in the fridge to marinate. This may have helped add more flavor to the steak, since others seemed to find it lacking - we didn't. I think the rice noodles would benefit from either additional marinade, set aside, as a sauce or maybe some soy sauce...otherwise, the meal was delicious and light; perfect for summer. I did find the use of the green onions odd on a kebab, but it worked just fine - I might use red onion next time.
