I’m not 100% sure when I started making my own Teriyaki sauce but there have been some great meals since I did. Today’s meal was another that goes into the that was yum category.
You can do a search online for Teriyaki sauce and you’ll find that everyone has their own method. Some add garlic some don’t. For mine it’s a good thumb sized chunk of ginger (chopped as fine as you can)… about 50% soya .. 25% Mirin .. and then I’ll vary the rest of the ingredients a bit.
I believe it was in an Asian place in town called Yum Yums that I got the idea to cut the steak up as thinly as possible (probably a beef Lok Lak . I marinade the meat in the teriyaki sauce for an hour or so before hand. Flash fry it and it’s ready in a minute or so … I’ll also add in a peeled / grated carrot and a courgette. Maybe a shallot as well. You don’t really get spring onions here unfortunately :( or I’d add in a few to the mix. All in all very quick, very tasty. Not a huge favourite with little people though she loves the meat just not the veg. She loves the sauce as well.
And here we have the end result on a bed of rice.
A great thing about making your own teriyaki sauce is it’s always different. Add some rice vinegar … add some sugar .. add some garlic it’s fun to experiment.
