Beef Teriyaki Kabobs
taken from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, pg. 221

1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry or apple juice
1 tablespoon molasses
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon grated gingerroot or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 clove garlic, minced

Partially freeze beef. Thinly slice across the grain into long strips 1/3 inch thick. (I've also done chunks) For marinade, combine soy sauce, sherry, molasses, mustard, gingerrott, garlic, and 1/3 cup water. Pour over meat. Marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature.

Drain meat, reserving marinade. On 8 long skewers, (soak for an hour if bamboo or wood) loosely thread meat accordion-style.

Place skewers on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 inches from the heat 5 to 6 minutes or to desired doneness, turning and brushing occasionally with marinade. Makes 4 servings.

Grill directions: Cut, marinate, and skewer meat as above. Place on uncovered grill directly over hot coals 5 to 6 minutes or to desired doneness. Turn and brush with mariade often.

NOTE: Do not serve the marinade as it has been touching raw meat.
