Sizzling Beef Teriyaki


Now this dish is a household favourite both with the diners and with the cook. It takes minutes to make, and served with sticky basmati rice makes a very pleasing and tasty dinner.

I had the leftover rib of beef from Sunday (oh my I sound like Nigel Slater!), so I used that in substitute for a raw meat cut. Frankly, I am glad I did, the flavour from the beef was divine.

The vegetables were what I had left in the fridge, and can be easily substituted for other variants.

I like my Teriyaki quite hot, and with not cooking the chillies off in the oil at the beginning, you will need quite a few to make a punch.

I do not like MSG in my Chinese meals as a rule, so there is no cornflour used here.

The Soy Sauce I use in dishes like these is a sweet soy from Healthy Boy Brand - and is just right to complement the tang from the Teriyaki.

Ingredients

for the sizzling beef teriyaki [serves 2] :
8 mini sweetcorn, halved lengthways
handful of mange tout, halved diagonally
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced thinly
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced thinly
3 shallots, finely diced
3 cloves of garlic, finely diced

1 tbsp sweet sticky soy sauce
400 g of left over beef, or a cut of your choice (increase cooking times for raw meat as appropriate)
1 tbsp ground nut oil

Method

for the sizzling beef teriyaki :
1) In a wok, or frying pan, add the oil and place on the highest heat.
2) When the oil is shimmering and hot, add the beef.
3) Cook the beef until browned on both sides. Do not stir too much, to let it brown quicker.
4) Add the peppers and cook for 2 minutes, stir continuously.
5) Add the ginger and chillies and cook for a further minute, stir continuously to avoid sticking.
6) Add the shallots and garlic and cook for a further minute, still stirring constantly.
7) Add the stock, Teriyaki sauce and sweet soy sauce.
8) Continue to cook for a further minute or two, until the sauce has reduced and thickened.
9) Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary. Serve immediately


I served this with sticky basmati rice and finely chopped coriander.
