Teriyaki Beef Skewers with Grilled Asparagus and Sesame Dressing

10 Minutes | easy | Serves 2

These quick cook skewers are packed with flavour and very simple to make. Grill them quickly over high heat so that the marinade caramelises and the inside stays lovely and tender. Asparagus is a great seasonal accompaniment but you could also use other green vegetables, like Tenderstem broccoli.


  • 450g sirloin steak, trimmed of fat and cut into thin strips against the grain
  • 60ml soy sauce
  • 60ml mirin
  • 60ml sake
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or finely grated
  • ½ teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
  • 200g asparagus
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
