  • Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.

Repeat with remaining beef, green onion, and skewers until all the beef is rolled up. Place skewers onto a broiling pan. Discard used marinade.

I did it slightly different according to what I had but it was still so good. I used dried minced garlic I did not have MSG and used a small amount of sea salt in its place. Also low sodium soy sauce. The mirin is what makes it imo. I fried it up on the stove instead of doing it in the broiler.. fantastic flavor and my 4 and 6 year old loved it too with a bit of jasmine rice. Read More

I thought this was pretty good. It kind of had both a sweet and salty taste. I used 3 NY strip steak because it was all I had. I also just put the green onion directly in the marinade and used a sweet white wine I had. I put the meat on 6 skewers with a generous 8-9 1" pieces of meat. They broiled in about 11 minutes flipping twice. Read More

This is a great recipe. I used a bit more mirin and substituted fish sauce for the MSG. I marinate for about an hour and used top sirloin. We grill ours for about 2 minutes a side on a "steak hot" grill. Read More
