As I was scanning through my recipes to find favorites that I should post on here, I came across this one! After searching Walmart and our local grocery store, I found the Doña Maria mole sauce in both stores! So of course, we had to have this for an early Father's Day dinner last night. It brought back so many memories and it was just as good, if not BETTER than we remembered!! What's even better is that these skewers only require a few minutes on each side to be done!
Check out the picture below for the exact mole sauce that we use (there are two different labels from when the company updated the look). I am sure you could use another type of mole sauce, but we love this one so much that we don't want to change!
Active Time: 30 minutes
Yield: Serves 6
- 2 pounds flank steak, sliced thin (we like to freeze and cut while still frozen, to make it so much easier!)
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup rice vinegar
- 2 Tablespoon minced garlic
- 4 teaspoons mole sauce (or chili paste)
- 2 Tablespoon light brown sugar
- Wooden or metal grill skewers
- Combine soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, mole sauce and brown sugar.
- Marinate the beef in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Meanwhile, soak wooden skewers in a bowl of water so that they don't burn up on the grill.
- Preheat the grill to medium. Thread the beef onto the skewers, allowing the beef to be fairly spread out.
- Grill the meat for about 2 minutes on each side, or until it starts to brown. A little bit of charring gives a TON of flavor!
