Asian Steak Kebabs
These soy sauce-marinated steak kebabs atop a bed of crisp broccoli slaw rival any delivery of beef and broccoli.
Asian takeout is popular with busy families, largely for its convenience and quantity. But when you can make a meal that’s fresher, more flavorful, and ready in less time than it takes the delivery man to get to your door, why call for takeout? Make these savory kebabs instead.
Soy sauce, rice vinegar, and chili garlic sauce make a marinade for the steak that infuses it with Asian flavor, and brown sugar adds a hint of sweetness. Start marinating the cubed steak, then throw together the Fresh Broccoli Slaw before grilling the kebabs. This way, both the steak and the slaw have a little time to sit so their flavors commingle, while still allowing you to have dinner on the table in 20 minutes.
Test Kitchen Tips
Toasting sesame seeds enriches their slightly sweet flavor. Toast them in a small sauté pan over medium-high heat — they’ll only take 1–2 minutes.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.
Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, chili garlic sauce, oil, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Add sirloin and toss to coat; set aside to marinate while making Fresh Broccoli Slaw.
Remove sirloin from marinade; divide among four metal skewers. Grill kebabs, covered, until charred on all sides, 6–8 minutes total. Transfer kebabs to a plate, tent with foil, and let rest 3–4 minutes.
Serve skewers with Fresh Broccoli Slaw; garnish with sesame seeds.
