  • Cubed Kobe beef.

  • Bamboo skewers (soaked in water to prevent burning)

  • Soy sauce.

  • Mirin (sweet rice wine)

  • Sugar.

  • Grated ginger.


Steps to Prepare Kobe Beef Skewers with Teriyaki Glaze:

Preparing the homemade teriyaki glaze.

  1. In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of mirin, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of grated ginger. Adjust the ingredient quantities based on your flavor preferences. You can add more sugar for a sweeter glaze or more soy sauce for a saltier flavor.

  2. Stir the mixture until the sugar completely dissolves.


Preparing the skewers.

  1. Cut the Kobe beef into desired cube sizes for the skewers.

  2. Thread the beef cubes onto the bamboo skewers. If desired, alternate the beef with vegetables such as onions, bell peppers, or mushrooms.


Grilling the skewers.

  1. Preheat a grill or skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Place the skewers on the hot grill and cook for a few minutes on each side, turning occasionally to ensure they cook evenly.

  3. As the skewers cook, brush them with the teriyaki glaze you prepared in step 1. This will add flavor and a glossy finish to the skewers.

  4. Continue grilling and brushing the skewers until the beef is cooked to your preference. Remember, Kobe beef is known for being tender and juicy, so avoid overcooking to preserve its quality.


Serving the skewers.

  1. Once the skewers are cooked, remove them from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.

  2. Optionally, brush them with more teriyaki glaze before serving to enhance the flavor further.

  3. Serve the Kobe beef skewers hot, and enjoy them with your favorite sides, such as rice, salad, or sautéed vegetables.


It's important to note that Kobe beef is known for its high quality and exceptional taste, attributed to the special rearing of cows in the Kobe region of Japan. If you do not have access to Kobe beef, you can use high-quality beef cuts as an alternative.

Moreover, remember that the homemade teriyaki glaze can be customized to your liking. You can adjust the ingredient ratios to achieve a sweeter, saltier, or more ginger-infused flavor.

You can also add other ingredients like minced garlic, oyster sauce, or additional spices for an extra flavor kick.

Enjoy these delicious Kobe Beef Skewers with Teriyaki Glaze! Always take safety precautions when using the grill or stove, and enjoy a unique culinary experience.
