CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - It’s always fun to try a new recipe! Whitney Hemmer has an easy way to creatively cook a steak dinner in this week’s Fareway cooking segment.

Beef Satay

Makes 4–6 servings

Total time: 15 minutes + marinating time


  • 1 pound beef sirloin steak
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar


Thinly slice steak across the grain, about ¼ inch thick. Using a meat mallet, lightly pound steak slices between two pieces of plastic wrap. Combine remaining ingredients in a resealable bag and add steak. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight. Thread beef on skewers* and discard the remaining marinade.

Preheat grill to medium-high and grill for 5-6 minutes, turning halfway through.

*if using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water for at least 30 minutes
