Teriyaki Beef Skewers
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup dry sherry
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
1 teaspoon fresh ginger root, peeled and minced
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 pound beef round steak, cut across the grain into 1/8-inch strips
24 6-inch bamboo skewers, soaked in cold water
In a shallow bowl, stir together the first 6 ingredients. Add the steak strips. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Preheat grill. Thread the beef strips ribbon-style onto the bamboo skewers, reserving the marinade.
Grill the beef skewers over direct, medium heat for about 5 minutes, basting with the reserved marinade and turning once. Makes 6 to 8 appetizer servings.
