What else could be better than serving your family a meal with meat on a stick during dinner? Yes, meat on a stick… not just any type of meat on a stick, but Orange Thai Beef Skewers! You’re probably gonna sweep them off their feet when they feel the savorous taste of the meat on their tongue. This feeling is irresistible, you’re surely gonna see them grin with so much pleasure. A wise man once said, “Eating your meal with beef tastes good, but eating your meal with Orange Thai Beef Skewer tastes much better.
The taste is nothing but tan“thai”lizing.” Orange Thai Beef Skewers are infused with sweet and savory Asain flavors. You don’t need many ingredients to make it. Guess what, it is also very easy to make. It goes well scallion or coconut rice and a salad or vegetable on the side. You can also try it with other dishes of your choice. To make your orange thai beef skewer, you’ll need to make your marinade and flank steak.
- To make the marinade, first, zest the orange. Then, take a bowl and add all your zest orange in it. Now, cut the orange in half and add all of the juice to the bowl as well.
- Then add soy sauce, vinegar, honey, sesame oil, ginger, coriander, and garlic to the orange mixture. Also, add Sriracha to the taste – depending on how you like heat. Whisk the marinade so that everything is well combined.
- For the flank steak, grab the flank steak and cut it across the grain. Then place the steak in a zip-lock bag and pour the marinade in.
- Swish it around and pop the bag in the fridge for at least 4 hours. This will help soften the steak and also makes it tender. After sitting it in the fridge for about 4 hours, ready to get some cooking done.
- Preheat the grill, then take the skewers and thread on the strips of meat. Stretch the meat out a bit so that they will cook evenly.
- Now, place them on the grill. Cook for about 3 – 4 minutes and flip halfway through. Do not overcook them because overcooked flank steak is usually tough and chewy.
- Serve immediately – as much as they cook pretty fast, they cool quickly too. So the rest of the meal should be all set on the table already. It tastes much better when served hot! Bon appetite!
Note: Sriracha is a really hot chili sauce, and it can be easily found in most grocery stores in the Asian foods section. But if you would have to substitute it, you could go for cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, or plain hot sauce. They are a great substitute for the marinade.
Note: If your skewer is made of wood or bamboo, pre-soak it before threading the meats on them.
Note: They cook pretty fast, so watch carefully. Also, if you don’t have an outdoor grill, cook under the broiler or on an indoor grill pan.
