Marinated Teriyaki Beef Skewers
Prep Time: 5 Minutes, plus 24 hours to marinate
Cook Time: 6-8 minutes
Serves: 8-10 people
Recommended Pellets: Mesquite, Hickory, Alder, Oak
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup pineapple juice (optional)
1/4 cup water
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 pounds boneless top round steak, cut into 1/4-inch slices
bamboo skewers, soaked in water
Slice the beef into 1 1/2-2 inch wide strips.
Whisk brown sugar, soy sauce, pineapple juice, water, vegetable oil, and garlic together.
Pour the marinade into a large zip-top bag and drop beef slices into the mixture. Marinate beef in refrigerator for 24 hours.
Remove beef from the marinade, shaking to remove any excess liquid. Discard marinade. Thread beef slices in a zig-zag onto the skewers.
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Close the lid, turn the temperature to Medium or 325 degreen and allow it to preheat for 10-15 minutes. Cook skewers on preheated grill until the beef is cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
