Beef & Chicken Teriyraki

One of my favorite dishes K makes is Beef & Chicken Teriyaki. This is the dish that he makes for birthdays, celebrations, or when he's in the dog-house :-) Just kidding... mainly for celebrations. The key to this recipe is using a great marinade and letting the meat soak in that marinade for at least two hours.

The teriyaki marinade we use is made by Soy Vay called Island Teriyaki. We like this marinade because it has the traditional ingredients for teriyaki plus pineapple juice. When you find a fantastic marinade, why make you own? It saves you the hassle and time plus you know your guaranteed great flavors every time you use it!

Soy Vay-Island Teriyaki
1 lb. beef or chicken (0r both) cut in strips
Salt & Pepper
1 Tbsp. EVOO
Toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Place your beef/chicken in a bowl or large ziplock bag. Add the marinade and place in the refrigerator for at least two hours. When you get up in the morning and know you're going to make this dish have the meats marinade during the day. You won't regret it when the flavors explode in your mouth!

Heat EVOO in a pan. Transfer the meat from your marinading bowl into the pre-heated pan.

I love the sound the meat makes when it hits the hot pan. The sizzling begins, the aroma fills the room, and your mouth starts to water.

Cook the meat all the way through. You don't want to see any pinks in the beef or chicken.

We love to serve this dish with a cup of white rice and a vegetable dish for the side. Our vegetable dish is braised cabbage (see recipe below).

I absolutely love eating this dish and get very excited when I see the meat marinading in the fridge. The meat is sweet, savory, and tender. What more can I say, it is truly yum delish!! Enjoy!!
