Beef Teriyaki Stir-fry

Remember that recipe I posted for Teriyaki Chicken Stir-fry? Well, this is basically the same thing, but I substituted beef for chicken. The original recipe is from Don't Panic More Dinner's in the Freezer and I followed it exactly (except for the beef), so I'm not going to post the actual amounts of the ingredients. If you'd like to purchase a copy of the book, you can click on the title above to go to amazon.com. (I do not get any sort of kickback for any books sold - I just like the recipes.)


I used: red bell pepper, mushrooms, onion, frozen broccoli florets, and beef pre-cut in strips for stir-fry. The beef was in really long strips, so I cut it into smaller, bite-size pieces.


How to: 
  • Heat a 1-2 TBSP. oil in a wok. 
  • Add the veggies, and cook for 2-3 minutes. 
  • Remove veggies from the wok (I put mine in a bowl), add a little sauce, and toss to coat them evenly.


Now you need to partially cook the beef -
  • Add 1-2 TBSP. oil to the wok.
  • Stir-fry the beef until it starts to brown on both sides. 
  • Remove from heat, add a little sauce, toss to coat, then allow to cool.
I wanted to divide mine into two 2-person servings, so I split the veggies between two foil containers for the freezer.


I divided the beef between two freezer bags (and did the same with extra sauce), and placed those on top of the veggies.


Next, I wrote the reheating directions on the lid, folded the foil edges down to seal, and popped them in the freezer. I also wrote the preparation date on the containers.


To reheat:
  • Thaw in the fridge overnight.
  • Place 1-2 TBSP. oil in wok and sitr-fry meat and veggies until heated. 
  • Add more sauce as needed/desired.
  • Serve over rice or noodles


This was a super-easy meal to make and only took about 10 minutes to get it on the table. You gotta love that!

This is how it looked after I thawed and reheated it. I served it over Thai jasmine rice. Gus and I both really liked this version, too. I was a little concerned that the beef wouldn't be tender, but it was perfect!


Super yummy! Come back & leave a comment if you try it!

  3. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I really love cooking but I didn't even try to cook a stir fry recipe. I hope that I will cook it perfect. I will now try to find those ingredients on the market.
