Grilled Asian Garlic Steak Skewers

Grilled Asian Garlic Steak Skewers are marinated in a delicious asian garlic sesame sauce and grilled to tender and juicy perfection! 


Ok ok I admit that I have a bit of an obsession with asian foods. But this recipe was FANTASTIC! Anything that involves soy sauce, garlic and sesame oil is an instant favorite in my book. This recipe was simple to put together and the flavor is out of this world good.

I am pretty picky when it comes to steak. It has to be tender and melt in your mouth. I just can’t do the tough and chewy but it takes cooking the steak just right. Also buying a high quality steak helps too you just can’t over cook it. A tenderloin can be a little expensive but will get the best results. A chuck roast is a little less expensive but can tend to be a little tough and chewy I have found. A sirloin tip is a good balance between the two and will deliver amazing results and a great kabab.


They marinate for a few hours in a simple soy sauce garlic marinade. The marinade just seeps into the steak and gives it such amazing flavor. As soon as I had my first bite of the steak it became an instant favorite.

Tender, Juicy, and full of flavor. You guys are going to love these as much as we did!

    1. I have never tried it with a broiler or a grill pan. That sounds like a great way to cook it if you don’t have a grill! Let me know how it turns out!

  1. This is delicious! My family loves it, I have made it 3 times within a matter of weeks. The marinade is so good that I use it on a variety of vegetables that we grill or stir fry. It has become a go-to recipe in our house!

  2. Made this last night – extremely tasty. I don’t like it too sweet so I halved the amount of sugar. Just keep in mind that any marinade with this much sugar will caramelise and burn easily on high heat. Adding this to the weekly list

  3. Made this recipe twice in one week!! It’s so delicious I make it on my Traeger grill its come out amazing! Thanks for the recipe

  4. This was delicious both times I made it! My family raved.
    But since I’m trying to cut calories, do you know if it really needs all that oil? Could I use just the sesame oil for flavor, but leave out the vegetable oil? What might happen?

    1. Hi Ginger!
      I am so happy that they all love it! You should be just fine leaving out the vegetable oil. I would maybe try to use a small amount of coconut oil instead. Please let me know how it turns out! Thanks so much for following along with me!

        Made it!! Delicious.
        I was only able to marinade for an hour and it was still great. The steak had lots of flavor. My picky husband and daughters liked it as well. I made white rice and set the skewers on top.
        Thanks for a delicious recipe

    I made the sauce exactly as written, just added mushrooms, sweet onions and red peppers, grilled each side for approx 5 minutes and it is now one of my very favorite recipes!

    Added to my Personal Favorite Pins Board!

    Thanks so much~
