With the Superbowl just around the corner I thought these would be a great appetizer for the steak lovers in your home. I myself love beef and enjoy these as an appetizer, but I also make them for dinner served with rice and roasted broccoli on the side.

You can make this on an indoor grill, a cast iron grill pan or make them outside on the grill. Always cut the meat across the grain at a slight angle with a very sharp knife.

  1. My family and I enjoyed this simple and easy recipe. I paired it with rice and sautéed Brussel sprouts.

  2. I’m a fan of your site, and truly enjoy most of the recipes I try. This was not my favorite. I saw that many reviewers found it too salty. I only keep low-sodium soy sauce in the house, so I did use that. My complaint was quite the opposite. I found the steak to be very bland. I admit that I chose to grill the whole flank steak and slick it cooked, but I also let the meat marinate for 8 hours (the same amount of time I marinate teriyaki flank steak), so I feel that the problem wasn’t that the steak was whole, or the time to marinate too short. It just didn’t do it for me. Perhaps the addition of a little heat would make a difference…red chili sauce? Red pepper flakes? Sriracha?

  3. I made this recipe using regular soy sauce. After reading the comments I expected a very salty outcome but I was pleasantly surprised, I loved it! Yes, it was a bit on the salty side, but nonetheless it was fantastic. I am sure with the low sodium soy sauce it would be exactly perfect. If I ever make it again with the regular sauce ,i will probably half the amount to balance out the salt. Also, I accidentally cut the steak a bit too thick. I as worried it will be chewey, but it was actually super tender, even the thicker pieces. Excellent recipe all in all, and will be a staple for the bbq season.

  4. Thanks for this recipe.  I used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce and used less than a cup.  I served with fresh corn and pineapple.  It was delicious.  

  5. This recipe was not on par with the normal caliber of recipes. I have made countless recipes from here and all have been wonderful! This one was so SALTY I could hardly eat it. (Yes, I used low sodium soy.) Any flavor was over powered by the salt. 🙁 
    I definitely would add this to your make over list Gina.

    These are amazing!! I actually ran out of skewers so I put smaller pieces of meat in my grill basket and laid the strips on the grill grate and it worked perfectly. I made a bunch extra and froze them on a cookie sheet and I send them to school for my daughter’s lunch (I removed the skewer before freezing). They are a little salty for my taste, but everyone else thinks nothing should be changed so I will always make them as written. THANK YOU for this simple, quick (other than skewering the meat lol) recipe. I used some of the strips diced up in an omelette for my son with red onion, cilantro and tomatoes, some went over an Asian themed salad with sesame dressing and my daughter just eats them “as is”. This recipe works for so much more than just appetizers!!

    We loved this so much!!  My grown son always says he doesn’t like soy sauce.  I made this and took a chance that he’d eat it.  He couldn’t stop talking about how good it was!  Thank you, Gina!   
    P.S.  I rated it 5 stars but am not sure I hit the stars correctly.
