Dinner tonight was quick and easy–Beef Terriyaki.
Beef Terriyaki Recipe
1 pound beef sirloin tip steak
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 onion sliced
1 bell pepper sliced
4-6 tablespoons of beef terriyaki sauce with about 15 calories per tblsp. (low sodium)
salt and pepper
Marinate beef steak in 4 tblsp. sauce for at least an hour or overnight. Heat oil in pan over medium/high heat. Place beef in pan and brown for 3-5 minutes. Flip and brown 3-5 minutes more or until desired doneness. Remove cooked beef to serving plate. Cover with foil and let beef rest 15 minutes before slicing into thin strips. Next, add onion and bell pepper to pan to cook down until tender. Add 1/4 cup of water if more liquid is needed. Also, add 1 or 2 tablespoons more of terriyaki sauce if desired. Salt and pepper onions and bell pepper to taste. While veggies simmer, slice the beef into thin strips. Pour veggies and sauce over sliced beef steak. Serve over brown rice with steamed broccoli or veggie of choice on the side.
My plate is above: I ate 2/3 cup of whole grain brown rice, about 4 ounces of beef, 1/2 cup of onion and bell pepper with tblsp of sauce, and about 1 1/2 cups of steamed mixed vegetables. Yum, yum!
