kikkoman products used:


1 pound top sirloin or tender steak of choice, diced into 1-inch cubes
⅔ cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original, divided 
1 medium bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces

For Serving: 
Thinly sliced green onions, white rice, macaroni salad, grilled vegetables, etc.


  1. Place the cubed steak in an airtight container or resealable bag with ⅓ cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original. Stir or toss to combine, coating the steak well. Seal and set in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 12 hours or up to 2 days.
  2. At dinnertime, preheat the grill for medium-high direct heat grilling, 500-550°F. Thread each skewer with teriyaki-marinated top sirloin, bell pepper, red onion, alternating as you go. Place the skewers on a large plate or small baking sheet & discard any excess marinade. Pour the remaining ⅓ cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original in a small bowl for basting. Set aside.
  3. Transfer the skewers to the grill over direct heat. Close the lid. Grill 3 minutes per side for medium doneness – add or subtract a minute of cooking time per side if you prefer your steak more/less done. After you flip the skewers, use a brush to carefully baste the cooked side with Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original. Transfer the grilled skewers to a clean plate or baking sheet and baste with any remaining Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original.
  4. Serve the grilled teriyaki steak skewers immediately, garnishing with thinly sliced green onion and serving alongside rice, macaroni salad, and additional grilled vegetables as desired. Enjoy!


  • Grilled veggies: For an easy, built-in side dish, double up on bell pepper & red onion. Create 3-4 veggie skewers, then grill as directed above. Be sure to baste with Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original for additional flavor. 
  • Simple swap: Prepare Teriyaki Chicken & Veggie Skewers by swapping the top sirloin for an equal amount of diced boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Grill 4-5 minutes per side, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 °F.

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
