Teriyaki Steak

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!
