Hoisin Beef Strips

(Marinate for at least 8 hours)


  • 750 g flank steak
  • 1/4 cup or more of hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup sherry or rice wine
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 grated Onion chopped OR 1 tsp minced onion
  • 1 tsp grated ginger root


  1. Slice beef while still slightly frozen into thin strips across the grain.
  2. Strips should be suitable for threading on a skewer.
  3. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and marinate at least 8 hours. Overnight is better.
  4. When ready to BBQ, thread beef on skewers that have been soaked in water a few minutes.
  5. Cook about 10-12 min turning every few minutes.
  6. Beef should be lightly seared on the outside. Do not overcook.
