Serves: 4-6


  • 1-1/2 pounds Beef Sirloin Tips
  • 1/2 Pineapple
  • 1 large Sweet Onion
  • 2 medium Red, Yellow, or Orange bell peppers
  • 3/4 cup Teriyaki Sauce
  • 3/4 cup Pineapple Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 2 inch piece of Ginger
  • 1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

  8. Heat up one chimney’s worth of charcoal until ashy and heat skewers over direct heat for 3 min on each side
  9. Move skewers to indirect heat and brush with the remaining marinade. Cover grill and cook for about 10 min
  10. PLATE: Transfer to a plate and let sit for 5 min before serving
