1Soak skewers in water 30 minutes. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium high and brush with vegetable oil. Make the teriyaki glaze: In a small pan, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, mirin, ginger and garlic. Simmer over medium heat 15 minutes. Meanwhile, stir cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water in a small bowl until cornstarch dissolves. Whisk cornstarch mixture into soy sauce mixture and continue simmering another 5 to 7 minutes, until thickened. Remove from heat. Let cool. In a bowl, toss beef strips with sesame oil. Thread each strip onto a skewer and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill skewers 5 minutes on each side. Then brush each with teriyaki glaze and grill another 4 minutes. Serve warm, brushed with additional glaze as desired. Serves 4
