Teriyaki Beef Stir-Fry for 3

"I love creating delicious beef stir fry recipes. Try substituting chicken, shrimp or tofu for the beef, and add a healthy mix of water chestnuts, bean sprouts or nuts" — Jennifer Wickes, Pine Beach, New Jersey
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. + marinating Cook: 15 min.
  • Makes
    3 servings


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 beef flank steak (3/4 pound), cut into thin strips
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Hot cooked brown rice, optional


  • In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Pour 1/2 cup into a resealable plastic bag; add beef. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • Drain and discard marinade. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry beef in batches in oil for 2-3 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
  • Add broccoli, onion and peppers to the pan; stir-fry for 4 minutes. Add mushrooms; stir-fry 1-2 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Return beef to the pan. Combine cornstarch and reserved marinade until smooth; stir into beef mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened. Serve over rice if desired.

    Amazing recipe! My picky 12 year old loved it. I usually do not rate recipes but I told my husband I have to give this a review it was that good.

    Amazing recipe! I switched the veggies around a bit based on what I had on hand, but otherwise stayed true to the recipe!

    I made this tonight and actually just finished eating it. It was DELICIOUS! Nice sweet flavor. I used frozen vegetables and dried ground ginger because I did not have fresh ginger and everything was still very flavorful. I would like to know if anyone drained the grease from the beef before cooking the veggies? It did not say to do so, but I did and just added a little more canola oil. This is definitely a keeper in my house :)

    This was delicious. I made it with venison. An hubby loved it too! It is a keeper. I will add more ginger next time to add more heat. Also some shredded carrots and maybe some baby corn. Yum-OH!
