We probably have this once a month. Sometimes I get bored with making steak the same way over and over again. The teriyaki marinade helps me go in a different direction with dinner. I like to try different vegetables and different flavor combinations together.
One 3 to 5lb. Tri-Tip Steak or Flank Steak
1 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1- 6oz. lite beer
juice from 1/2 a lemon
1 green onion (chopped)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
Stir soy sauce, brown sugar, water, beer and lemon juice in a bowl until the brown sugar dissolves. Pour marinade into a gallon zip-lock bag. Add in the garlic and onion. Add in your steak. Let it marinate for 3 plus hours. The longer the better. Remove the steak from the marinade and grill or broil your steak.
2 cups (uncooked) brown rice
Cook rice according to the package. However I cook my brown rice in chicken stock instead of water. I think it gives it more flavor that way.
2 cups thawed & shelled edamame soy beans
1 cup sliced red bell pepper
1 cup sliced carrots
1 chopped green onion
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame seeds
In a skillet over high to medium heat add the sesame oil. Add in all the vegetables. Stir and let them cook for 4 mins. Add soy sauce to the skillet. Stir the vegetables. Let them saute a little more in the soy sauce. Add in sesame seeds. Let it all cook together for 1 more minute.
Place cooked rice in bowls. Spoon veggies over the rice. Slice up your steak and then add it on top of the rice and vegetables. You can add a little more soy sauce if you want. Enjoy!
