This is a different starter for your evening. On the deck? Even better.
- 1 lb. beef tenderloin
- 1 tbsp. sesame oil
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 2 tsp. hoisin sauce
- 1 tsp. chili garlic sauce
- 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, warmed
- 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
Trim the tenderloin of any fat and silverskin. Cut into 1 inch cubes. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining marinade ingredients, except the warm teriyaki and sesame seeds.
Add the beef and toss to coat well. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours.
Preheat broiler and set the rack 6 inches from the element. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with Pam. Spread the cubes onto the foil. Bake until desired doneness (5 minutes to medium rare; 8 minutes to medium well).
Transfer to a bowl and toss with the warm teriyaki sauce. Skewer with serving picks and dip each one into the sesame seeds to coat. Serve immediately.
