Beef Teriyaki & Chicken Yakatori Skewers

The homemade teriyaki & yakatori marinades really are a must!! They tenderises the meat perfectly. We have gone crazy on Japanese food since our Ballymaloe sushi course. Up to now, we were deep frying or sushi rolling. But these skewers are actually really healthy, as they are lean cuts of meat, marinated in nothing oily, and then griddled. Both marinades are so similar, they could be variations of each other actaully.

Serves 6


Beef Teriyaki

  • 3 tbsp of mirin
  • 4 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar

  • 3 sirloin steaks, cut into thin strips

Chicken Yakatori

  • 3 tbsp of mirin
  • 4 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 2 Finely chopped Spring onions
  • Juice half a lime

  • 3 chicken breasts, cut into thin strips


  1. Combine the marinade ingredients together
  2. Soak the beef and the chicken in their relevant marinades for at least 30 minutes
  3. Skewer the meat onto metal skewers (or use soaked wooden skewers)
  4. Preheat the griddle pan.
  5. Place the skewers on the pan, turning occasionally until browned all the way round. Alternatively you can pop them under a preheated grill for same amount of time.
  6. Serve with some rice noodles.
