make sure to cut the meat against the grain.
i cut my into strips and then again into smaller bite size pieces
Once you have all your veggies & meat cooking in your saucepan / wok make the sauce.
Not sure if you noticed but I don’t have any measurements – that’s because last week when I tried to measure it out my stir fry ended up being kinda gross. Okay, not gross, but it wasn’t the “same”.
So I’ll try to give you a round-about guide – but feel free to let your inner cook out and add/subtract items as you see fit!
Add in about 1/3 cup of soy, 1/3 cup teriyaki, and a splash of water.
*i find that the reduced sodium soy is better so it’s not super salty, i added more water to this bc i didn’t have the reduced on hand
Throw in your seasonings. I would start with these measurements and go from there:
1Tb garlic, onion, ginger, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tsp red pepper flakes.
Sometimes I’ll add a splash of OJ or lemon juice to give it some zing.
oh how did i almost forget this!
throw in about 2 Tbs of this – maybe 2.5Tbsp.
throw it in the sauce mixture
i just dump, i dont use measurements, sometimes i accidentally add a bit much but it turns out fine
oooh this stuff can go in there too.
you don’t have to add it, but i like the flavor it gives.
you can add it to the steak while it cooks too – i didn’t this time, but i do if i remember it.
now mix it all up
now pour the sauce over medium/high heat
and stir continually until the sauce starts to bubble and thicken
and voila! all done 🙂
Now, I like my veggies soft so the kiddos can eat it easier – so you can cook your veggies less / more according to your taste. Also, I like my steak medium-ish and my husband prefers it well done, so sometimes I’ll keep some of the steak out and add it into my bowl when serving it up so its not cooked as much.
You can add / take away ingredients as you see fit as well.
I used to add my seasonings to my veggies when they were cooking but I just figured it was easier to add it in the sauce and forget about it.
Let me know how you like it!
