Beef Skewers with Asian Marinade


  • 400 g Beef eye fillet
  • sesame seeds
  • Lemon; cut into wedges to serve
  • 6 skewers

For the marinade

  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons kecap manin
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves , crushed
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons malt vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil


  • Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine. Dice the beef into the toddler bite size pieces and add to the marinade. Marinade for a couple of hours minimum or preferable overnight in the refrigerator
  • Soak the skewers in water (this prevents them from burning). Skewer the beef and cook on a hot grill plate or BBQ until nicely charred and cooked through. They won't take very long, so keep an eye on them. Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds and lemon wedge


Makes 6 skewers
