A few weekends ago I got what I thought was an interesting request from the Missus. She wanted Teri-Beef........ Man, what a blast from the past for me! I love teri-beef sandwiches. So while She went with the strange low carb teri-beef in lettuce cups...I just did mine the way I like it.
I've gotten pretty good at actually grilling the soft #2 thin cut rib eye on my Weber. Man was this a blast from the past......it made me long for the Teri Beef King at Jolly Roger Drive-In. The one we used to go to was next to the graveyard near Kahala Mall, it's now a Zippy's. We used talk about how Waialae Drive-In was haunted because it was next to the graveyard and we were told that part of the parking lot was built over half the cemetery....supposedly the movie would go upside down at midnight and there was a faceless woman ghost that haunted the women's restroom......I heard that the ghost moved on to the Kahala Theatre's after the drive-in closed??!??
Anyway, this is basically my "Fourth Grade Teri-Beef" with some grown-up touches. So easy......
1 cup Aloha/Yamasa Shoyu
3/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/3 cup mirin
2-3 Tb grated/minced garlic
2 tsp ginger juice
3-4 bunches green onion, white part only chopped
- Mix all ingredients until sugar is totally dissolved.
- Taste and adjust
- You should be able to get 1 1/2 - 2 pounds of meat with this
- I separate all the meat slices and mix well with the sauce before putting into a ziploc
- Marinate for at least 6 hours and no more than 14-16...it will get real salty
- Grill or panfry
Man........this makes me miss "home"......
Tell me, where is/was your favorite teri-beef sandwich?
And here's a total blast form the past.....anybody remember Hana Chicken?
My goodness......I'm getting majorly old.....before you know it, I'm going to blabbing about Yum Yum Tree!
Thanks for letting me reminisce!
