Teriyaki Beef Marinade

How to Make Stir Fry Beef

  • In the same pan, you cooked the vegetables, heat the pan and add another couple tablespoons of oil.

How to Thicken Teriyaki Sauce

  • In a small bowl, add 2 Tablespoons of water and 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch.  Stir until the cornstarch is dissolved.
  • While whisking, pour the cornstarch mixture into your boiling marinade.  
  • Keep whisking until the sauce thickens and will coat the back of a spoon. 
  • Toss together the meat, veggies, and marinade.  Serve over Rice. Enjoy!
