Smoky Teriyaki Beef Skewers

1 lb. beef roast (I used chuck roast, use whatever you have one hand) ($1.99)
1 C. teryaki marinade (free after coupons)
3 T. liquid smoke ($.23)
3 T. brown sugar ($.12)
1 tsp. cumin ($.05)
1 T. minced garlic ($.10)
2 T. parsley ($.10)
24 wooden skewers (6" long) ($.15)
1-2 tsp. canola or peanut oil ($.05)

Cut meat into thin strips. Whisk together marinade, liquid smoke, cumin, brown sugar, and garlic. Pour over meat and marinate overnight.

Soak wooden skewers in water for 2-3 hours.

Pierce beef with wooden skewer and wrap around the skewer tightly. Pan fry in 1 tsp. oil for 6-8 minutes, until beef is cooked. Top with parsley before serving.

Cost: $2.79
Cost per skewer: $.12

Tangy dipping sauce:

1/4 C. barbecue sauce
1 T. lemon juice (or any citric fruit juice)
1 T. peanut butter, smooth
1 T. marinade (Caribbean Jerk or Teriyaki)
1 tsp. parsley

Whisk together until well combined. Heat in small pan on stove over medium low. When it's well incorporated and heat through, the sauce is done. Chill and serve.
