Ok, you asked for it – and you’re gettin’ it! As promised – the Banyan Beef Skewer recipe from Disneyland’s Bengal BBQ in Adventureland! It’s one of my favorite stops for a filling snack or a light lunch (however you like to look at it). The great thing about this recipe is it is super, I mean super simple to make. The recipe is easy enough that you can incorporate it into your regular meal planning and yet spicy and unique enough to jazz up an otherwise commonplace dinner. Plus, I thought this meal would be a nice change from all the turkey we’ve been eating!
- Soy Sauce: 1 cup
- Ground Black Pepper: 1 Tbsp.
- Cayenne (Red) Pepper: 1 1/2 tsp.
- Garlic Powder: 1 Tbsp.
- Sesame Seed Oil: 3 Tbsp.
- Water: 1 1/2 cups
- Cornstarch: 3 tablespoons
- Wooden Skewers
- Beef Sirloin, cubed
- Soak skewers in water for about 20 minutes. Pat dry and set aside.
- Slide 4-5 cubes of beef on each skewer. Place under your oven’s broiler for about 15-20 minutes until browned and completely cooked through.
- While beef is broiling make the sauce. Pour soy sauce into a medium sized saucepan. Add in seasoning and sesame oil. Stir well. Bring to a boil.
- While waiting for sauce to boil, mix water and cornstarch in a small bowl with a fork.
- Once sauce has come to a boil add in cornstarch mixture. Stir continuously over medium-high heat until thickened. Remove from heat.
- Place skewers on serving plate. Brush with thickened sauce. Serve any extra sauce in a dish for extra dipping.
|And I am not left handed.|
Full disclosure, this is not a recipe I found at City Hall, but it’s one I found years ago on the internet. I’m pretty certain it’s the real deal because no matter what website you find this recipe on, it’s always the same – oh, and it tastes just like the real thing!
|How do you take pretty pictures of
beef skewers? I still haven’t figured it out.
- Cooking just for my husband and I, we cut up two large steaks and made a half recipe of the sauce, and there was still a lot of sauce left – I would estimate a half recipe would cover at least 6 steaks worth of beef.
- If you prefer, you can cook your beef on the grill (I would’ve except it’s literally freezing outside, and I’m a wuss!).
- Serve with rice, baked potatoes, grilled veggies, or corn on the cob (if I’d thought of it, I would tried to make Tiger Tails Breadsticks – shoot!)
- I wonder what this would be like on chicken…
- And that’s it – shortest notes section ever!
