Directions

  1. Place ginger, garlic, onion, brown sugar, fish sauce, vegetable oil, soy sauce, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne pepper into a mixing bowl; whisk into a smooth marinade.
  2. Bruise lemon grass by hitting it lightly several times with the back of a large chef's knife; mince the lemon grass and add to the marinade.
  3. Cut beef sirloin into strips about 2 1/2 inches long and 1/8 inch thick. Thoroughly mix the beef into marinade until all beef strips are completely coated, about 1 minute. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  5. Remove beef from marinade and shake off excess marinade. Thread 1/4 the meat onto each metal skewer.
  6. Arrange skewers on the preheated grill and cook until the meat stops sticking to the grill, about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip skewers over onto other side and cook until meat is well browned and shows grill marks, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Turn onto first side again and cook until meat is still slightly pink, 2 more minutes. Transfer to a platter and let skewers rest about 2 more minutes before serving.

Initially I used chicken and it was excellent, so then I tried it using beef but I made the mistake of marinating it for too long :( I will certainly make it again however this time I will listen to Chef John's instructions.

My whole family loved this recipe - including my picky little eaters. So flavorful and tasty. Served with brown rice and broccoli - a perfect meal.
