About a week and a half ago we had a family BBQ. One of the items that I made was LouAnn's Steak On A Stick. LouAnn won a Family Fun magazine recipe contest with that recipe. It was then sent on to Disney (they own Family Fun) for a possible spot in their Disney Family Cookbook. She won! That was in 1996.
Flash forward to Aug of 2009. While PJ and I were on the 50 mile garage sale up state, we stopped at one of the houses. We were ready to leave when my eye caught the sight of a cookbook. I had to go over and look to see what it was. I IMMEDIATELY grabbed it. It was Disney's Family Cookbook with LouAnn's recipe on page 132!!! I talked the lady down from 75 cents to 50 cents!
Everyone loved these, especially Brooke and Scott! If there were 100 of them, they would have eaten them!!


1 1/2 lbs. London Broil or Flank Steak, sliced about 1/4" thick
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. vegetable oil (opt)
1/4 c. water
2 TBSP molasses
2 ts. dry mustard
1 ts. powdered ginger
1/2 ts. garlic powder

Bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water
Cut the steak on the diagonal in 1/4" slices and place in a sealable bag. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl, stir together, then pour into the bag. Seal the bag with no air pockets, shake, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or freeze until ready to use.
When you're ready to cook, skewer the meat, ribbon style with 3 to 4 pieces on a skewer.
Broil or grill the meat, about 3 minutes on each side.
Makes 10-16 skewers.
