Sweet Soy & Sesame ‘Beef’ Skewers

Difficulty: Easy

Makes about 14 skewers

Like the Satay ‘Chicken’ Skewers, these cheeky devils are great as a meal or entertainment option for vegans and non-vegans alike. Reminiscent of those honey soy skewers you may have had in your meat eating days, these are even better and of course made without the meat (or honey)!


  • 14 wooden skewers
  • 1 bag beef-style chunks, thawed
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup kecap manis
  • 1/3 cup rice malt syrup
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


  1. Mix together the soy sauce, kecap manis, rice malt syrup, garlic and ginger.
  2. Chuck the chunks into a container and pour the marinade over the top. Invert the container to cover the chunks.
  3. Place in the fridge for about 2 hours, inverting the container occasionally.
  4. Soak the skewers in warm water for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200°C and grease a baking tray.
  6. Thread about 5-6 chunks onto each skewer and place on the baking tray. Brush a little more marinade over each skewer and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  7. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes and serve hot.

      Hi Janet! I believe the brand is either Vegie King or Vegie Giant. Let me check the packet next time and get back to you. I get mine from a local Asian supermarket!
