These smashed steak skewers with teriyaki glaze couldn’t be easier to make, and taste delicious with a side of cilantro lime rice and grilled vegetables.
The Fun of Eating Food on a Stick!
There’s something enticing about food on a stick. Whenever we cook kebabs, the kids always ask to have their food left on the skewer to eat it. And if we’re threading both meats and veggies on the sticks to grill, each person can choose what they like best on their kebab.
Sometimes we need to pack lunches to go, so I buy smaller sized skewers to make lunch kebabs. Somehow, everyday lunch foods feel new and exciting if you put them on a stick. Thread chunks of leftover chicken on a stick with cheese cubes and bell pepper slices. As a side, try a stick of fresh fruits with chunks of mango, grapes, and strawberries. Cold lunch kebabs are a great opportunity for kids to help in the kitchen and can even turn into a lesson in colors and patterns!
Smashed Teriyaki Steak Skewers
To make these steak skewers you’ll need flank or sirloin steak cut into strips. Season the strips with salt, pepper, and garlic and then use a cast iron skillet or meat mallet to flatten the strips to about ½ inch thick. Thread the meat onto skewers and grill for 1-2 minutes on each side. Because the meat is pounded so thin, it cooks really fast! Brush teriyaki sauce over the skewers and grill an additional few seconds to heat, then remove and serve.
If you’re using wooden skewers, make sure you soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before using to prevent them burning on the grill.
