Teriyaki Kabobs
  • 1/3 C. soy sauce

  • 2 T. vegetable oil

  • 1 T. brown sugar

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 tsp. ground ginger

  • 1 tsp. seasoned salt

  • 1 1/2 lb. boneless sirloin steak, cut into 1 1/4−inch cubes

  • 12 whole mushrooms

  • 1 large green pepper, cut into 1 1/2−inch pieces

  • 1 large onion, cut into wedges

  • 12 cherry tomatoes

  1. In a bowl, combine soy sauce, oil, brown sugar, garlic, ginger and salt; mix well. Pour half of the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container; add beef and turn to coat. Seal or cover; refrigerate for 4 to 8 hours, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

  2. Drain meat; discard marinade. On metal or soaked bamboo skewers, alternate meat, mushrooms, green pepper, onion and cherry tomatoes; leaving 1/4 inch between each. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side.

  3. Baste with reserved marinade. Continue turning and basting for 8 to 10 minutes or until meat is cooked thoroughly. Serves 6.

It's easy to adjust the sodium - I skipped the salt and used low sodium soy sauce. Then I drank water with the meal - awesome recipe.

I am a bit disappointed in most of your recipes since I am diabetic but I also have to watch my sodium very closely. Since so many recipe are much higher than I should have particularly if I ate all 3 meals per day.

Diabetes/Heart/Low Carb fix - Low Sodium Soy Sauce, Sugar Twin makes an artificial brown sugar substitute (there are others as well from health stores) - for all natural try Brown Rice Syrup or Maple Syrup (both lower than sugar and sweeter so you use less and are absorbed more slowly when our body converts it). You still have to watch sugar levels though if using all natural. Can also use fresh ginger to kick it up a notch along with fresh garlic. Any vegetable you like and if you reduce the sugar above, a single piece of pineapple on the end of your kabob as a treat is nice (yes you can have just one).

This recipe sounds delicious, but it is NOT teriyaki.

Traditionally, teriyaki contains EQUAL AMOUNTS of soy and sugar (e.g., 1 cup of soy sauce, 1 cup of sugar). Which makes it utterly unsuitable for diabetics or anyone else (like me) who is on a medically-supervised ultra-low-carb regimen.

Yummmy! I goofed and used Teriyaki sauce for the soy sauce and I took out the salt, but it was wonderful. I marinaded my tips the day before and and skewered up a great meal. I also added zucchini.

only gave it a 3 because also having high blood pressure I keep sodium down around 400.

I'm a purist myself :-) I love the BBQ. But if you must, I'm sure the George Foreman would still taste great.

Sounds delicious but I'm trying not to eat to much meat. How does it cook on the George Forman grill or is it better to BBQ it?
