My husband is half Hawaiian and we've hosted and gone to many luaus in the past several years. This is always one of my favorite dishes. I got this recipe from one of our Hawaiian friends who is an amazing cook. When we hosted our first luau this was the first dish to go. Now I make sure that I always buy extra beef because it is so good!
This recipe is easy to make but before you make it, make sure you read through the directions carefully and DO NOT substitute the Aloha brand soy sauce f
Teriyaki Beef- Hawaiian Style
Also seen on Kuki's Kookbook
Ingredients2 1/2 pounds beef, shortribs ( 2-3 pounds beef short ribs OR rib eye steak, cut thin and lengthwise (I like the rib eye steaks from )
1 cup soy sauce ( Aloha brand soy sauce, DO NOT substitute brands )
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
4 clove(s) garlic ( 3-5 garlic cloves, crushed )
1 1/2 teaspoon ginger root ( 2-3 slices ginger, cut thin and lengthwise )
DirectionsThis is the basic ratio for the sauce, you will just increase it depending on how much meat you are soaking. You want there to be enough marinade that you can stir the meat freely. If it's hard to stir you need to add more sauce.
Combine the water and soy sauce and then dissolve the sugar in the liquid. Add the desired amounts of ginger and garlic. Add the beef. You can soak the meat in the marinade for up to 3 days but you want to soak it for at least 24 hours.
After you have marinated the meat for a few days, you are ready to grill. I prefer grilling over charcoal, but a propane grill works fine too and is easier to get ready. Just cook the meat on the grill like you would any other meat.
