Beef Yakitori


  1. 3/4 pound lean sirloin, cut into 1-inch pieces
  2. 6 ounces cremini mushrooms, halved
  3. 6 scallions, cut into 1-inch lengths
  4. 1/4 cup canola oil
  5. Salt
  6. 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  7. 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  8. 1 tablespoon miso paste
  9. 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  10. Sesame seeds, for garnish


  1. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a bowl, toss the sirloin, mushrooms and scallions with the canola oil and season with salt. Thread the meat and vegetables onto 8 skewers.
  2. In a bowl, combine the brown sugar with the soy sauce, miso paste and sesame oil. Grill the skewers over high heat, turning, until the meat is nearly cooked, about 2 minutes. Brush the skewers with the glaze and grill until they are lightly charred and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Transfer the yakitori to plates, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.
