  • Combine water, Japanese soy sauce (we used Kikkoman), sugar, grated ginger, and mirin in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved and sauce is thick.
  • Slice U.S. beef tenderloin into 1-inch cubes, slice carrot into 1-inch-long sticks, and leeks into 1-inch-long pieces. Thread beef, carrots, and leeks alternately on skewers. Grill for 2 minutes on each side, regularly basting with sauce.
