  • 1 lb beef strips stir-fry style (or cut your own from a strip steak)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder or 1 teaspoon of minced fresh ginger
  • enough skewers to skew them all!


  1. First and foremost, soak your skewers (if made of wood) in a cookie sheet with a shallow layer of water.
  2. Whisk all of your ingredients together, minus the beef strips, to create your teriyaki.
  3. Soak the beef strips in the teriyaki sauce for at least 30 minutes.
  4. While the beef is soaking up all the teri and yaki, build your fire... preferably outside. You can also use the grill, but that would be slightly less manly. Just saying.
  5. Now, I don't know how hot your fire is or how big you've built it. I would say, position a cooking grate 3-4 inches above the top of the flames. Let the grate get nice and hot. Then, place each skewer on the grate and bask in the beautiful sizzling. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes, maximum. Don't worry, if you are a little low in the testosterone today and are worried about it being too rare, it won't be. As long as the strips are thin, they will be plenty cooked.
