Teriyaki Beef Broil

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.

Question of the Day: What's the expected high temperature in your area today?

Wow, they look great Paula. I'm going to try them soon.

I'm not sure what temp we had today - it is the middle of the dry season here, so it's winter but not in any sense that you'd recognise. I guess it was probably mid-20's (that Celsius), still shorts and t-shirt kind of weather.

I never pay much attention to the exact temperature, I just know it's going to be HOT. We've been having cooler temps (for us) because of all the rain, but now that the rain has let up it, it's so humid.

We are supposed to get to 22'C here today. Not really that warm for us for this time of year.

Suzanne said...

90 which is blazing hot for us. We are all wilting and panting.

Low 90's - eeeep! Ironically, I had soup for lunch (but I was in air conditioning!)

Wanda said...

92* and getting hotter.

Strange weather here today. We had high 90's last week. Today felt like Hawaii...low 80's but a bit humid...plus we are supposed to have dry thunderstorms tonight.
