Teriyaki Beef Broil
The All-New Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook Copyright 2006
1 ¾ pounds top round steak (1-inch thick)
¼ cup soy sauce I used low-sodium
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons molasses
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground mustard
6 cloves garlic, minced
Fresh chives (optional)
Partially freeze steak; slice diagonally across the grain into ¼-inch slices. Place steak in a zip-top freezer bag or shallow dish. Combine soy sauce and next 5 ingredients; pour over steak. Seal or cover, and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour. I marinated it while I was at work, about 10 hours.
Remove steak from marinade, discarding marinade. Thread steak onto 8 (10-inch) bamboo skewers. Place skewers on a lightly greased rack of a broiler pan.
Broil 5 ½ inches from heat 5 to 6 minutes, turning once. I grilled them and they took one a couple of minutes. Sprinkle with chives, if desired.

I just love this type of recipe, especially on the grill. I'm sure these would have turned out great broiled too but it was a nice evening and I wouldn't have to clean a broiler pan if I used the grill, so I did. It was a hot evening but these didn't require much cooking time at all. I put them on the grill, took the container in the house, came back out and they were about done. I just gave them one quick flip.
It was a bit of a pain to skewer the meat but otherwise this was very simple and quick to prepare. I just freestyled some vegetable fried rice to serve with it (I cooked the rice the night before).
It's hot! It will get close to 100 today which I know is mild compared to what many people are experiencing right now but I'm just not used to it.
Blast From The Past: Easy Italian Spiced Pork from June 2006. Those chops were great. I need to make those again soon.
