Teriyaki beef skewers on a white plate
8 servings
  • 1 cup (250 mL) soy sauce
  • ½ cup (125 mL) water
  • 1½ cup (300 g) Redpath® Golden Yellow Sugar
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) vegetable oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp (30 g) grated fresh ginger
  • 4 lbs boneless round steak
  • Wooden skewers

Step 1

In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, water, brown sugar, and oil.

Step 2

Use a microplane to grate the garlic cloves and ginger, or mince them with a knife. Add to the sugar mixture.

Step 3

Gently cut the steak into square pieces, then place them in the marinade. Cover with plastic and transfer to the fridge to let them marinate for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Step 4

Before cooking the beef, soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes (this will prevent them from burning while in the oven).

Step 5

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Pierce the pieces of beef on the skewers, then place on a parchment-lined baking tray. Cook in the oven for a total of 30 minutes, rotating the skewers every 10 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
