  • 1 lb beef steak (such as flank, sirloin, or ribeye), thinly sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (for garnish)
  • Sliced green onions (for garnish)
  • Steamed rice, for serving

For the Teriyaki Sauce (if making homemade):

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water (slurry)


  1. Start by preparing your ingredients: slice the beef into thin strips, and cut broccoli into bite-sized florets. If you’re making your own teriyaki sauce, combine soy sauce, water, brown sugar, honey, garlic, and ginger in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, then add the cornstarch slurry and stir until thickened. Set aside.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add the beef strips and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the beef is browned and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes. Remove the beef and set it aside.
  3. In the same skillet or wok, add a bit more oil if needed, and stir-fry the garlic and ginger for about 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add the broccoli florets and stir-fry until they are bright green and tender-crisp, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  4. Return the beef to the skillet with the broccoli. Pour the teriyaki sauce over the top and toss to coat all the ingredients evenly. If desired, drizzle with sesame oil for extra flavor.
  5. Cook together for another 2 minutes, allowing the sauce to heat through and the flavors to meld.
  6. Remove from heat, and garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
  7. Serve hot over steamed rice.

This Teriyaki Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry is both a crowd-pleaser and a lifesaver on a hectic day. It’s a must-try dish that combines the convenience of quick cooking with the satisfaction of a home-cooked meal. Enjoy!
