I got to playing around one day with Asian sauces to come up
with a sauce for Salmon that was different. I had a sesame
sauce recipe but it was lacking. I added honey and garlic
and BAM! Well since the family is not into fish (I am), I
decided Kabobs would be more to their liking. Then I thought
why not try the sauce on Kabobs.
This recipe is easy, very
tasty and heart healthy as I use low sodium Soy Sauce. 40%
less sodium then regular Soy Sauce. breasts.
First thing get mix 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup low sodium Soy
Sauce, 6 tbsp sesame oil, 3 cloves fine chopped garlic and a
dash of black pepper. That's the sauce and it's that easy.
Make sure you thoroughly mix the marinade.
Pour about a 1/8 cup of the marinade into a cup to mop on
the Kabobs when they come out of the cooker. Using a meat
tenderizer, pound on 1.5 pounds of lean beef stew meat. This
will make the meat extremely tender and allow it to better
soak up the marinade.
Cut up 3 chicken breasts (1.5 lbs) into cubes. Place
chicken and beef into a 1 gallon ZipLoc bag and pour in the
sesame marinade. Squeeze out all the air and zip the bag
closed. Kneed the bag for a minute to coat all the meat.
Place the bag flat in the refrigerator and allow it to
marinate for 1.5 to 2 hours.
Cut 1/2 of a red onion into large pieces close to the
size of the meat cubes. Cut both red and green bell peppers
the same size. Cover and set aside for the big Kabob build.
After the meat has marinated for a couple hours, pre-heat
your cooker to 280 degrees. I recommend Peach wood or Peach
wood pellets. Now it's time to build the Kabobs. Using wood
skewers (my preference for skewers), begin piercing the meat
starting with beef then onion, pepper, mushroom and then
chicken. Keep doing this until you have all your Kabobs
completed. Dust the Kabobs with some black pepper.
Place the Kabobs on your pit and cook @ 280 degrees. The
cook should take about 1 hour 40 minutes. You want to cook
the Kabobs until the internal temp of the larger chicken
pieces reaches 169 degrees turning them every 30 minutes.
Once the chicken reaches 169 degrees remove the Kabobs
from your cooker and mop on the remaining sesame marinade.
That's it! This is a very simple recipe that is full of
flavor and will surely be a hit.
