We have been grilling out a lot these days, so when I saw this recipe for Sweet Teriyaki Beef Skewers, I knew that I had to make them.
I made a few changes to the original recipe, like adding some grated fresh ginger and mango/pineapple juice instead of just pineapple juice.
I marinated the beef for only 6 hours instead of the 24 it called for and they were still great. This would be great to do the night before so all you would have to do is grill them when you come home.
The recipe stated that the pineapple juice was optional, but I think it gave it added flavor, even though I used a mango/pineapple version.
I love recipes that I can easily make changes to. Next time I am going to try chicken instead of beef.
Hope you enjoy this recipe and try and stay cool!
