    • 1 tsp ginger (grated)
    • 1 tbsp cornstarch

Begin by preparing the teriyaki sauce.

Heat a saucepan on the stove over medium heat, add the soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, garlic and ginger to the pan, whisk to combine. Bring to a boil, then simmer 4-5 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water. Add this to the boiling sauce and whisk together, reduce the heat to low and simmer 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Once cooled, place ½ cup of teriyaki sauce in a large bowl (reserve the remaining ½ cup of teriyaki sauce), whisk in the pineapple juice and crushed red pepper. Add the sirloin.

Remove the steak from the marinade and skewer with the bell peppers, onion and pineapple.

Heat one side of a grill over medium heat & another side over low heat. Grill skewers over medium heat until beef is well seared on all sides, about 3 minutes per side.

Move skewers to the low heat side of the grill and brush all over with reserved teriyaki sauce. Cover grill and continue to cook 5-7 minutes. Transfer skewers to platter and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
