Teriyaki Beef or Pork Skewers
Classic luau fare, teriyaki beef or pork is always popular with guests. if you'd rather have shrimp or chicken, reduce marinating time to 2-3 hours and cook shrimp for 2-3 minutes maximum. Chicken may be cooked the full 7-8 minutes.
2 pounds of beef or pork tenderloin cut into 3/4 inch cubes
3/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 rice wine vinegar or (other mild vinegar such as apple cider vinegar or white vinegar diluted with some water so it is less acidic)
1/2 cup oil
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1 pineapple or 3 mangoes cut into 3/4 inch cubes
Mix sauces, vinegar, oil and ginger and add cubed beef or pork marinade overnight in refrigerator. When you are ready to cook, alternate 2 pieces of meat and 1-2 pieces of fruit on skewers. Grill or broil on high for 7-8 minutes, turning once. Serve immediately and invite guests to eat right off the stick.
If you do not have a grill or broiler, cook sates at home on your grill and simply reheat several sates at a time in the microwave for 1 minute or so.
