Mini Marinated Beef Skewers

Marinating these beef kabobs makes them tender, flavorful and easy to make ahead of time. If desired, add the cherry tomato topper to give a splash of color and additional vitamin C.

Yield

Makes 6 servings (3 skewers each)

Ingredients

1 beef top round steak (about 1 pound)
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
18 cherry tomatoes (optional)
Lettuce (optional)

Preparation

  1. Preheat broiler. Cut beef crosswise into 18 (1/8-inch-thick) slices. Place in large resealable food storage bag. Combine soy sauce, sherry, oil and garlic in cup; pour over beef. Seal bag; turn to coat. Marinate in refrigerator at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  2. Soak 18 (6-inch) wooden skewers in water 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat broiler. Drain beef; discard marinade. Weave beef accordion-style onto skewers. Place on rack of broiler pan.
  4. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat 2 minutes. Turn skewers over; broil 2 minutes more or until beef is barely pink.
  5. Garnish each skewer with 1 cherry tomato, if desired. Place skewers on lettuce-lined platter. Serve warm.
