For Father’s Day, plan a meal fit for a king. You’ll want to include this easy recipe, as it is a favorite for barbecuing. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water first to prevent burning. Chicken, pork, or shrimp can be substituted for beef. This recipe works well in diabetic menus.
1/3 cup lite soy sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar or the equivalent in artificial sweetener
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pound top sirloin, cut into 1" cubes
Mix soy sauce, water, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic powder in a shallow bowl. Add beef and marinate for 1–2 hours in the refrigerator.
Start the barbecue. Drain beef and discard marinade.
Thread beef on skewers, and place on hot grill. Close the hood and cook for 4 minutes. Turn the skewers and cook for another 3–6 minutes or until done to your liking.
