1/2 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup rice vinegar (not seasoned)

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 tablespoon Sriracha (Asian chile sauce)

3 cloves garlic, grated

1 1/2 pounds beef tri-tip, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 onion, cut into 1-inch wedges

Vegetable oil, for brushing

4 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces


  1. Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, Sriracha and garlic in a large bowl. Add the beef and onion and toss to coat; cover and refrigerate 1 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat a grill to medium high and brush the grates with vegetable oil. Thread the beef, onion and scallions onto eight 10-inch skewers and brush with more oil. Grill the kebabs, turning occasionally, until marked, about 7 minutes for medium rare.
