Beef Teriyaki

Beef Teriyaki

I had posted a while ago a dish called Chicken Teriyaki and it is one of the popular search items in my blog, now I am introducing another Teriyaki variant which uses beef instead. Teriyaki is famous in Japan and the most common ones are tuna or salmon, the beef and chicken variants are more common on Western countries where they are tailored for. A very versatile sauce which can be used in different types of meat, wraps, burgers, stir fries and even pizza (wonder how does that taste like). This wonderful sweet sauce is usually made out of soy sauce, mirin and honey which are boiled to reduce and have that sticky texture.

If you are tired of having a normal steak in a gravy sauce try this one out, you can still use the same steak cut you are used to but instead of using your usual gravy try teriyaki instead. I also suggest slicing the steak in small pieces that can be easily picked up by chopsticks, now that’s an easy Japanese dish.
