Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

Thanks to hurricane Irma with our power out for  four days it was necessary to cook off as much of our frozen food that was going to go bad so this recipe was a quick throw together that actually came out not too bad!

You can make this recipe quick and easy or marinade the chicken for a little while either way it will come out great.  One  Chicken breast cut into ½” cubes will easily serve two persons and a bag of stir fry vegetables could serve up to 4, so just do the math with how many people you are serving.

While I tend not to endorse products, occasionally I find great stuff that out does most others, for teriyaki baste and glaze Iron Chef or Kikkomans are both excellent products and for the stir fry any one of the Birdseye frozen packets that suit your taste will work just fine.

Ingredients for Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

  1.  1 chicken breast cut into  ½” cubes per 2 persons
  2. 1or more bottles teriyaki baste and glaze
  3. 1 package frozen stir fry vegetables per 2 persons
  4. 3 Tbs soy sauce
  5.  2 Tbs Sesame Oil (optional)
  6. Cooked rice
Directions for Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

Marinate the chicken in some of the teriyaki baste for about an hour, then using a wok or  stir fry pan or a large sauté pan, cook the chicken until almost done and lightly browning.

In another pot cook the rice.

To the chicken add the vegetables and cook for about five minutes covered or as directed on the package. Once the vegetable are cooked and hot add the rest of the teriyaki baste the soy sauce and sesame oil stir together bringing everything up to heat and serve over the rice.

Teriyaki Steak

Teriyaki steak is not a throw together meal.  it does take a little forethought and time to prepare, but the results are usually spectacular.  A well thought out marinade, done not too long, a properly cooked steak, and a delicious glaze all combine to transform an ordinary steak into a truly great meal.  It works particularly well with top sirloin steaks and as in this recipe with the Tri-tip top sirloin.

Ingredients for Teriyaki Steak

For the Marinade:

  1. 1 cup Soy sauce
  2. 3 -4 Tbs garlic salt
  3. 3 -4 Tbs fresh cracked pepper
  4. ¼ cup Turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw)
  5. 1 tsp ground ginger (optional)

For the glaze:

  1. 2 Tbs soy sauce
  2. ¼ – 1 cup dark brown sugar
  3. ½ tsp ground ginger (optional)

Directions for Teriyaki Steak

For the Marinade:

When I put meat into marinade I like to “Jaccard” the meat ( by piercing with a fork to help break up the connective tissue and allowing the marinade to penetrate the meat).

Find a pan that will hold all the meat in a single layer.  Pour the soy sauce into the pan, if using the ginger add in and stir to combine, place the steaks in and then turn so that both sides are wet.  Sprinkle the top with the garlic salt, pepper and ½ the sugar.  Allow to sit for about half an hour, then turn and season the other side.  Marinate for another half an hour, then turn and rotate sides soaking in the marinade every hour.   Marinate for 4 – 5 hours.

You can also use a large plastic storage bag to marinate the meat just be sure to rotate every hour or so and be sure to have it on a plate or dish to guard against leaking.

For the Glaze:

Put ingredients into a small sauce pot and on low heat melt the sugar and stir to combine.  You want a very thick sauce , if it looks to thin add more sugar until you have the consistency you want.  Keep warm.

 Teriyaki Steak

Cook the steak in any manner you are comfortable with either grilling or under a broiler.  Cook to your desired amount of doneness.  Remove from the grill if using a larger piece of meat allow to rest for 10- 15 minutes, Individual steaks can be serve almost right away.

Once the steak is removed from the grill baste the top with the glaze and serve the extra glaze in a sauce boat on the side.
