Lemongrass Beef Skewers Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 12 minutes | Yields: 20-22 skewers

Ingredients:

1.5 pounds top sirloin steak
20-22 wooden skewers

Marinade:

1/3 cup minced fresh lemongrass (white part only)
1/4 cup minced shallot
2 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons fish sauce
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons sweet soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

Garnish:

1/4 cup roasted peanut, crushed
1/4 cup slightly sautéed scallion

Method:

Slice the steak into small thin pieces approximately 3/4″ square and 1/4″ thick.

Combine all the ingredients for the Marinade. Add the Marinade to the meat and mix well. Marinate for at least 1 hour.

Soak the wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. Insert the meat through the wooden skewers.

Heat up the grill. Grill the meat for at least 2-3 minutes on each side, or until desired tenderness.

Garnish the Lemongrass Beef Skewers with bits of crushed peanuts and sautéed scallion before serving.

Cook’s Note:

To make the sautéed scallion, heat up a non-stick pan with 2 teaspoons cooking oil. When the oil is hot, add in the 1/4 chopped scallions. Add salt to taste. Slightly sautéed for 1 minute.

  1. Too funny- I just made and posted grilled lemongrass beef a couple days ago! I love how flavorful the beef gets with just a simple marinade. Next time I’ll have to make the sauteed scallions for topping the skewers… I’m sure it makes them even better :)

    Hi, Our local markets don’t carry lemongrass. However, they do have the lemongrass in the tubes. Any thoughts of using that instead? Thanks!

    Great recipe! Made it along with mu ping and Thai grilled chicken skewers from SheSimmers. We’re going to make them again tonight!
