Hawai'i's "Barbecue Sticks"


Slice meat into strips about three-quarters of an inch wide and about one-eighth-inch thick. Thread them onto bamboo skewers and marinate in teriyaki sauce for about an hour before grilling.


Shirley's Pork Version

Pork is delicious too and has won over even those who never eat the "other white meat." While many people would prefer a pork loin, we've always used the lean section of a pork butt. There's more marbling, and obviously a bit more fat, but also greater taste.

Cut lean pork into strips as you would the beef above and thread similarly.
