Asian Beef Satay

Servings 6 servings


  • 2 pounds flank steak trimmed
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 cups brown rice prepared as to package directions
  • bamboo skewers or metal


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate beef overnight or for at least 8 hours. If using bamboo skewers, presoak them in water for 30 minutes, to prevent burning on grill. Slice meat across the grain (diagonally) into 1/4-inch strips. Place in a large zipper-topped plastic bag. In a small bowl, whisk together next 5 ingredients (teriyaki sauce through crushed red pepper flakes). Pour mixture over steak strips.
  • Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours, turning several times. Preheat grill to MEDIUM. Toast sesame seeds: In a small skillet, cook sesame seeds over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until fragrant, shaking occasionally. Prepare rice.
  • Meanwhile, weave steak strips onto skewers (discarding marinade and bag). Place steak skewers on the grill. Cover and cook for 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until they reach desired level of doneness. Sprinkle skewers with toasted sesame seeds and serve over hot rice. Enjoy!
