Hawaiian Beef Teriyaki

Hawaiian Beef Teriyaki

love love love beef teriyaki! It was one of my FAVORITE meals to eat when I lived in Hawaii. I seriously can’t get enough of this stuff.

Hawaiian Beef Teriyaki
  • 1 can pineapple chunks with juice (15 oz.)
  • 1 c. soy sauce
  • ¾ c. brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. minced ginger
  • *1 Lb. skirt steak, sliced very thin (carne asada works GREAT)
  1. Mix together all ingredients, excluding beef. Set aside about ½ c. of the sauce, cover and refrigerate.
  2. Place beef in a Ziploc bag and pour marinade over. Press out all the air, seal, and marinate for at least 6 hours (overnight works great).
  3. Over prepared grill on medium-high heat, grill steak a minute or two on each size until cooked to your desired doneness (with the steak being so thin, you don't have to grill it for too long). Place beef in a large bowl, pour remaining sauce over the cooked beef and stir until well covered. Serve with rice (or grilled fresh pineapple).
  4. *you can use sirloin steak, cut into chunks. Thread marinated beef onto skewers and grill.
  5. **This is also a GREAT marinade for Teriyaki burgers...


  1. Question??? Is the minced ginger a spice or you actually bought ginger? Can it be done with a ginger spice?


  2. I like to use the REAL stuff, the flavor is better. I am sure you can use the ginger spice though. Just remember to use a little less because it has been dried.

  3. Can you substitute the pineapple for something else due to being allergic to them, if so what would you suggest best??

    • You can leave it out or if you want a citrus flavor you can add a little squeezed orange and a touch of orange zest!
