Teriyaki Steak Recipe

Teriyaki Steak Recipe

My brother-in-law, Stanley, gave me this recipe more than 30 years ago. He was an officer in the Army, and his fellow officers considered this flavorful steak a high-demand dish. —Dan Mayer, Olney, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Cook: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 beef flank steak (1-1/2 to 2 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups cold cooked rice
  • 1 package (9 ounces) frozen peas and pearl onions


  • 1. Place steak in a large resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, whisk 1/2 cup soy sauce, vinegar, honey, ginger and garlic. Pour half of the marinade over steak. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat or broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 7-9 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • 3. Meanwhile, transfer reserved marinade to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half. Set aside.
  • 4. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Pour eggs into skillet. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When eggs are completely cooked, remove to plate. Chop eggs into small pieces; set aside.
  • 5. In the same skillet, stir-fry rice in remaining butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the peas, onions and remaining soy sauce.
  • 6. Add eggs; cook and stir until heated through. Thinly slice steak across the grain; serve over rice. Drizzle with sauce mixture. Yield: 6 servings.

"I feel a little bad to review this recipe because I didn't follow the instructions exactly. Instead of marinating it I cooked the steaks in the sauce in the crockpot for a few hours. However, the sauce just didn't taste good to me. Way too much balsamic vinegar flavor for me, not enough sweet. Not sure if it's because of the way I cooked it or not, but don't crock pot it. That's my advice"

"The ginger was a little overpowering. I'd use 1/2 the amount if I make this again. The rice was rather bland, so I added some garlic and oyster sauce."

Reviewed Mar. 21, 2011

"Although I didn't make the fried rice (my son has a severe egg allergy), the steak was tasty! I especially liked the sauce, and may actually make it to put with other stuff in the future. I paired it with an improvised egg-free "fried rice.""

"This was a great dish to make and eat. My boys and I loved it. I used Low Sodium Soy Sauce and found that it was not salty at all!"

"This was the best Teriyaki marinade I have ever made, and I love to try new and different versions, I've already made it twice this week because i couldn't get enough! Be sure to save some of the sauce for dipping or drizzling over afterwards, its wonderful! I did add a little dry mustard to mine because I love that in my teriyaki sauces. Thanks for the recipe!!"
