Grilled Beef & Broccoli Kebabs

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds sirloin steak cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 5 cups of Smith's Farm's broccoli florets with about 1" stem
  • 1/4 cup olive oil plus more for broccoli
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water

Marinade/Glaze:

  • 1 tablespoon Japanese rice wine or dry sherry, not vinegar
  • 1/4 cup quality oyster sauce (like Lee Kum Kee or Kikkoman)*
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Directions:

  1. Whisk Marinade/Glaze ingredients together in a medium bowl. Add 1/4 cup to a large freeze bag along with 1/4 cup olive oil and sirloin cubes. Marinate 2 hours up to overnight (the longer the better) in the refrigerator. Refrigerate remaining Marinade/Glaze separately.
  2. When ready to cook, add broccoli to a large bowl and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Toss to coat. String beef and broccoli on skewers** piercing broccoli at the top of the stem, just below the floret.
  3. Grease and preheat grill to medium high heat. Grill skewers until lightly charred all over, approximately 5 minutes per side. You can cheat and check a a cube for doneness.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk remaining Marinade/Glaze with 1/4 cup water and 1 teaspoon cornstarch, cover and bring to a boil on your grill (this can also be done on the stovetop). Once simmering, uncover and stir until thickened. Brush cooked skewers with Glaze. Serve warm with rice.
