Grilled Teriyaki Beef Kabobs

 

Makes 6 servings

1 ½ lbs. beef boneless top sirloin steak, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup teriyaki baste and glaze
1 medium bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
18 medium whole fresh mushrooms
2 Tbsp. olive oil
¼ cup sesame seed, toasted

Place beef in plastic bowl or heavy-duty re-sealable plastic bag. Pour teriyaki baste and glaze over beef. Cover bowl or seal bag and refrigerate for at least 4 hours but no longer than 24 hours.

Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Thread beef, bell pepper and mushrooms alternately on each of six 15-inch metal skewers, leaving space between each piece. Brush bell pepper and mushrooms with oil. Sprinkle kabobs with sesame seed.

Cover and grill kabobs 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 15 to 20 minutes, turning frequently, until beef is no longer pink in center.

*To toast sesame seed, cook in an ungreased heavy skillet over medium heat about 2 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, and then stirring constantly until golden brown.
