I’m a real lover of Asian food and Asian inspired cooking. Even though the use of lots of oils and deep frying are typical in traditional recipes, Asian cuisine has the potential to be one of the healthiest cuisines on the planet. There are a whole plethora of recipes like this beef teriyaki recipe that are just packed with vegetables and their nutrients, some you may be familiar with and some more exotic vegetables that you may not be as familiar with are often used.

Step 1: Create the marinade
Firstly lets make our marinade. Mix together 1/2 cup of light soy sauce, 1 cup of water, 1/2 tsp ginger, 4 tbsp of honey, 2 chopped cloves of garlic and 2 chopped spring onions to a bowl and mix well.
Step 2: Prepare the beef
Grab your steak. I typically use sirloin for this recipe, fillet is also another good choice however this time i just have a super cheap non descript steak from the supermarket as I’m trying to save money and in my experience that has worked just as well as a pricier cut. Remove as much visible fat as you can and slice thinly, against the grain of the meat, as shown in the photo.
Place the meat in the marinade and leave in the fridge for at least a couple of hours or until needed.
Step 3: Start cooking!
When you’re nearly ready to cook your beef teriyaki, cut half a head of broccoli into small florets and blanche in boiling water for just a couple of minutes. Drain and put to one side for use later.
Heat up a wok, I don’t use any oil in my cooking but if you prefer to, add it now. Take your marinated beef out and place it in your wok along with half of the liquid and as much of the onion and garlic as you can get. Let the mixture reduce and thicken slightly as the honey caramelizes. This should take about 10 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook the teriyaki beef for another 3-5 minutes before serving.
What to serve with teriyaki beef?
Serve teriyaki beef with rice, noodles or other Asian inspired sides.
Can I freeze or reheat this recipe?
Personally, I would not recommend reheating, and in turn freezing this recipe as it will result in very mushy broccoli!
