Sesame Orange Beef Skewers

This Sesame Orange Beef skewers are an easy appetizer with a lot of flavor and "wow" factor.  When you put this on the table... everyone stops talking because they are making a bee line straight for these tender slices of beef that have been marinated in a citrus Asian marinade.  I made them just for my family and all I had was a bunch of empty skewers left in a matter of minutes.  If you want to make this into a meal, serve it with some fried vegetable rice.

2lbs boneless beef flank steak
1/4 cup sesame seeds (toasted)
green onions sliced for garnish
Prepared marinade (below)

1 Tbs ginger
1 Tbs garlic
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tbs oyster sauce
1 Tbs  Shao Hsing Chinese Rice Wine or substitute dry sherry 
1 Tbs hoisin sauce
1-2 tsp sesame oil
 black pepper to taste 

Cut beef into 1/4 inch thick beef strips against the grain of the meat.  Marinate in marinade for 4-6 hours. Thread on skewers. Heat a griddle or grill pan on medium high heat with 2 Tbs canola oil.  Fry on both sides until cooked to desired internal temperature. 

You can also grill these on the outdoor grill if desired.
Garnish with toasted sesame and green onions. Serve warm. Enjoy.
