What steak is best for skewers?

Sirloin steak tips or strips is a great steak for keto beef skewers because it is already tender before marinating. Sirloin is also quite lean and budget-friendly. If you can't find a good cut of sirloin, though, you could try flat iron, strip steak, or tenderloin.

How long should a steak be marinated for?

It is usually recommended to marinate meat for thirty minutes to eight hours. If you marinate any longer than eight hours, your marinade may start to break down the proteins in the steak and make them mushy. For this particular keto steak recipe we recommend marinating for 1 hour.

Is soy sauce keto?

The short answer here is yes. However, when it comes to soy there is always a debate. The fact is, soy sauce is low in carbs and can fit into a ketogenic lifestyle should you choose to add it. If you decide not to use it there is alternatives such as Coconut Aminos.

Is Teriyaki Sauce Keto?

Whether teriyaki sauce is keto or not really depends on which product you purchase. On average a serving of basic teriyaki sauce has 4g of carbs. If that fits your keto day, great! If you think the sugar content is too high, there are many sugar free options as well as easy homemade versions. The bottom line- teriyaki sauce can be keto friendly just like soy, but there is always going to be a debate.

Making These Delicious Keto Beef Teriyaki Skewers

First you will want to get your wooden skewers soaking in water, especially if you will be grilling them over a flame. Take care when grilling the keto beef skewers as this is not always fool proof and I always recommend using metal skewers.

Gather all your ingredients, cut the steak, place it in the bowl to marinate. Come back in one hour and skewer the meat.

How to Skewer Steak for Beef Teriyaki

Hold the slice of steak flat in the palm of your hand. Carefully start at one end of the steak with the skewer pushing up through, work the steak strip down the skewer.

Push the skewer down through, then back up through again, repeating until it is fully skewered. Use your fingers to flatten/spread the meat flat on the skewer. Full recipe card for our keto beef skewers below! Enjoy!
