Preparing the Beef
For this recipe, I recommend a cheap cut of beef such as top or bottom round.
You can certainly go nicer with a top sirloin, but not necessary if you’re looking to keep things budget-friendly!
Make sure you buy your beef whole and NOT already pre-sliced into stir-fry beef!
To prep the meat, slice your steak into very thin strips. The thinner you can get it, the better texture it will have when it’s cooked!
Picking your Vegetables
I use a mix of broccoli, sweet peppers, and onions in this recipe, but you certainly have other options as well!
Some of our other vegetable add-in favorites…
- Snow peas or sugar snap peas
- Shredded carrots
- Sliced mushrooms
- Sliced zucchini
- Water chestnuts
- Baby corn
Making the Teriyaki Sauce
Disclaimer: if you’re running short on time, you can definitely take the easy route and use a jarred teriyaki sauce.
But if you have an extra five minutes, I DEFINITELY recommend making it homemade!
My homemade teriyaki sauce calls for soy sauce, white vinegar, light brown sugar, grated fresh ginger, water, and cornstarch.
It cooks up in only a few minutes right in the same pan with the vegetables and beef. The flavors are SO worth the extra little bit of effort!
I guarantee this beef teriyaki stir fry will become a dinner regular in your house. This one’s always on our dinner rotation for good reason!
