Oriental Beef Sticks

  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 20m

Serves 6


  • 1 1/2 pounds lean beef strips
  • 1/2 cup plum sauce
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced chili


Prepare a grill over high heat. Push the beef strips onto 8-12 oiled bamboo skewers.

Combine all the remaining ingredients and brush over the meat. Cook the skewers for 3-4 minutes each side, brushing repeatedly with the spicy sauce.

If you like to add vegetables to your skewers, make sure the pieces are the same size as the meat. Button mushrooms and summer (baby) squash can be used whole. Fruit can work well (both for its color and flavor), but it must be firm, not overripe or soft. Onion is great on a kabob. Cook for a few minutes first by simmering in water or cooking for a minute in the microwave oven.
