The perfect beef teriyaki

beef teriyaki

Beef Teriyaki is a flavorful dish that you can have ready in about 30 minutes! Delicious beef and a quick teriyaki sauce all made in one pan that will rival any take-out dish.

This beef teriyaki is a homemade version of one of my favourite restaurant dishes. Every piece of beef is a little crispy and coated in a sweet and sticky teriyaki sauce! It’s delicious served over steamed rice for a quick weeknight dinner.

Beef Teriyaki with Rice – Serves 6



  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1   cup water
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour


  • 800g thinly sliced beef
  • 100g sliced red/yellow capsicum
  • 100g broccoli florets
  • 100g sliced carrot
  • 100g sliced onion
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Garnish: sesame seeds, sliced green onion


For the sauce

  1. Place soy sauce, water, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, honey and sesame oil in a small pot over medium-high heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.
  2. Turn up the heat to high and bring to boil.
  3. On the side, mix cornflour with 2 tablespoons of cold water until dissolved.
  4. Add the cornflour mixture into the sauce and boil for 1 minute or until sauce has thickened.
  5. Set sauce aside.

Putting it all together

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until vegetables have started to brown and soften. Set the vegetables aside when they are crisp-tender.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in the pan over high heat. Place beef in the pan and season generously with salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until just cooked through.
  3. Add the vegetables into the cooked beef. Pour the teriyaki sauce over the top and cook for 2-3 minutes over medium-high heat until warmed through.
  4. Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions if desired. 
  5. Served with steamed Jasmine rice.
