In a glass or plastic bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, oil, lemon juice, sesame seeds, sugar, green onions, garlic, and ginger. Thread the meat onto skewers. (If you are using wooden skewers, soak them 30 minutes first.) Place the skewers in a plastic or glass container just large enough to hold them, and pour the marinade over the meat, turning to coat well. Cover, and chill for a minimum of 4 hours.

Preheat grill for high heat, and position grate 5 inches from coals. Brush grate with oil, and place skewers on grill. Grill for 10-15 minutes, occasionally turning kabobs to ensure even cooking.

  • Just a correction on the name of the dish. Yakitori means "grilled chicken" for steak the word would be "niku" or yakiniku
