2 green onions, minced 2
2 tbsp lime juice 30 mL
2 tbsp brown sugar 30 mL
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 15 mL
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger 15 mL
1 tbsp vegetable oil 15 mL

1-1/2 lbs boneless Ontario top sirloin steak, cubed 750 g
40 pineapple chunks 40
40 3-inch (7.5 cm) bamboo skewers or toothpicks 40

In bowl, whisk together green onions, lime juice, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, vegetable oil, salt, thyme, allspice and cayenne. Toss with beef and marinate for at least 1 hour and up to one day.

Assemble one piece of beef and one pineapple chunk onto each skewer. Arrange in a single layer on a greased, foil-lined baking sheet. Broil on high, turning once until beef is browned and pineapple starts to caramelize, about 4 to 8 minutes.

Makes 40 pieces.

Chef’s tip: For larger skewers, add 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces of green onion and cubed red pepper to each skewer.
