Asian Beef Skewers

1 1/2 pounds boneless beef top sirloin steak
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 green onion, grated or put through a garlic press
2 cloves garlic, very finely minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 splash of ricewine vinegar
1 teaspoon finely minced ginger root
Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

Trim fat from steak and slice steak across grain into 1/4-inch-thick strips. ( If you mess up and go with the grain they're going to be chewy and tough.)
Combine soy sauce and remaining ingredients in a glass dish; add steak strips, and toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours or overnight.
Remove steak strips from marinade, reserving marinade.Thread steak strips onto prepared skewers.
Grill uncovered over medium-hot coals (350* to 400*F / 175* to 205*C) 8 to 9 minutes or until desired doneness, turning and basting frequently with reserved marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.

These make a great quick freezer meal as well.
