Just a trip down to memory lane...
I think this was one of the first recipes I tried from Martha Stewart. Spring was almost over back then, and grilling was in the air. But because we were too lazy to get out and grill, I looked for some type of recipe that only required broiling, and you still get that "grilled" food.
Here is an adaptation from Martha Stewart's recipe, which I think is the best beef skewer recipe I've ever made.
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup packed dark-brown sugar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste (you can buy them from any Asian supermarket)
- 1 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless beef short ribs, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
- 1 red onion, quartered, layers separated
- 1 can (20 ounces) sliced pineapple in juice, drained, slices cut into quarters
- Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat; line a baking pan with aluminum foil. Soak eight 6-inch wooden skewere in a pan of warm water; set aside. You can also use metal skewers.
- Meanwhile, make the sauce. Whisk together honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, curry paste and oil in a small bowl. Reserve half the sauce for serving.
- Thread beef, onion and pineapple onto skewers. Place on prepared baking pan, and brush with sauce. Broil, brushing occasionally with sauce, until beef is medium-rare and onion begins to char, around 10 minutes.
- Serve with steamed white rice.
Notes: The sauce can also be used for marinating. It's that good!
