These skewers are great for a make ahead appetizer and are one of our favorite appetizers to serve when we are camping. The meat and marinading can be done ahead at home and then assembled and cooked while camping or when ready to serve at home.


  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar (white/red/cider)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon barbecue sauce
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger root, minced
  • 700 grams flank steak
  • Skewers (soaked in water)
  • ¼ cup additional hoisin sauce for basting

Preparation method

  1. In a small bowl, mix together hoisin sauce, red/white vinegar, soy sauce, bbq sauce, green onions, garlic and ginger.
  2. Cut steak across the grain on diagonal into ¼ slices. Place slices in a seal-able plastic bag. Pour hoisin sauce mixture over slices, and mix well
  3. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill on medium high heat. Discard marinade, and thread steak on skewers that have been soaked in water for 1 hour. This will help prevent burning.
  5. Oil the grill grate. Grill skewers for approx. 3-5 minutes per side, or until desired doneness.
  6. Baste beef  with the additional hoisin sauce.
