Keto Teriyaki Beef Skewers ingredients

  • soy sauce – can be replaced with coconut aminos for strict keto
  • sukrin gold
  • apple cider vinegar
  • water
  • sesame oil
  • fresh ginger
  • garlic
  • toasted sesame seeds – toast in the oven or in a frying pan, just until golden

Sukrin Gold is a low carb sweetener that tastes like brown sugar. I use it in all sorts of recipes like No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Freezer Cookies or my Baked Chicken Wings rub. It can be found at some grocery stores or online at amazon.

How to make Keto Teriyaki Beef Skewers

Marinate that beef

This recipe is super easy to make, however, you are going to need to make the teriyaki sauce ahead of time so that it can cool to at least room temperature, and then you’ll want to marinade the beef for 1-24 hours. Sometimes I’ll make the marinade the day before and refrigerate until I need it!

To make the teriyaki sauce, add all of the ingredients, except xanthan gum, to a small saucepan, whisk, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat so that the sauce is gently simmering, and cook this way for 15 minutes.

Remove from the heat and pour the sauce into a heat safe container. Return 1/4 cup of the sauce back to the small sauce pan and sprinkle in a pinch of xanthan gum. Heat on medium low heat, stirring until thick; a moment or two. Remove from heat and pour into a separate heat safe container. Cool both until at least room temperature.

Take the flank steak and slice it against the grain, nice and thin, until the whole steak has been sliced up into thin ribbons. Toss the beef into the marinade, saving the smaller portioned sauce for later use. Allow the beef to marinade for 1-24 hours.

Cook the goods

From here you can decide to either toss these onto a grill, barbecue or broil them in the oven.

Either way, fire up your heat source of choice. If using wood skewers, pre soak them in water for 15-30 minutes before adding the beef.

Expert Tips

  1. I always use fresh ginger and garlic where it works – in this recipe? It’s essential. In a pinch you can sub the garlic for 1/4 tsp garlic powder and the ginger for 1/4 tsp ground ginger, but, the fresh is, 100%, the way to go.
  2. Be sure to cool your marinade to at least room temperature before mixing in the beef, other wise the hot marinade will begin to cook the beef, which we do not want.
  3. Slice the beef against the grain. This means against the lines running along the flank steak – this will make the skewers tender rather than tough.
