  1. Whisk soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, green onions, lemon juice, sesame seeds, ginger, and garlic together in a bowl until marinade is smooth.
  2. Thinly slice steak with the grain into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Thread steak slices onto skewers and place in a flat plastic or glass container. Pour marinade over skewers. Cover container with plastic wrap, and refrigerate, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Flip skewers and continue marinating in the refrigerator, 1 1/2 to 2 hours more.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove skewers from marinade, discarding marinade.
  4. Cook steak skewers on the preheated grill until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you are using thin wooden skewers, soak them for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • To get the maximum amount of juice, apply light pressure as you roll a room-temperature lemon on the counter before cutting it open.
  • Partially freezing the steak tends to make it much easier to slice.
  • Editor's Note:
  • Nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of marinade ingredients. The actual amount of marinade consumed will vary.

Very good - some even make it into the house for the rest of the family ;)

These were awesome!!! Definitely use the fresh grated ginger!

The family wasn't too crazy over this recipe. I will admit that I made these indoors in a cast iron skillet so that could be the difference.

LOVED these! Stick to the grilling time listed - the ones we grilled longer were still amazing but not as good as the ones that were only grilled 3 minutes each side.
