Delicious and so simple to make Teriyaki Beef and Greens Stir-Fry is ready in under 20 minutes – the perfect busy week night dinner
Stir fries are among my favorite go-to dinners when I need to whip up something quickly. I love the crunchiness of the vegetables and the tender meat. Especially in this Teriyaki Beef and Greens Stir-Fry.
The beef gets marinated in the Teriyaki Sauce at first and then I stir-fry the meat in the sauce as well.
Each and every ingredient is hugged in a rich, thick Teriyaki sauce, and so good over rice, pasta or even mashed potatoes.
However, I do not serve this stir-fry too often with mashed potatoes, as my family prefers it over rice.
I think this is one of the prettiest stir-fry recipes I make. The dark, rich meat color and green just look so inviting !
Mostly I do like the usual multi-color stir-fry recipes. But now and then I want to serve something which looks just that little bit different.
Simple, but quick and delicious especially when you are in a hurry to get dinner on the table.
If you have the time, rather buy a good quality whole beef steak and slice the beef into strips. I have noticed lately that the already cut into strips beef are quite tough.
And seeing as the beef goes through a machine, about half of the beef is not even cut straight through !
To add a Side or not ?
Depending on the season, you might want to add either a salad (Summer time) or a vegetable (Winter time) on the side.
I have found it not necessary at all as the recipe yields six large servings already and we are normally only four at home for dinner.
But, for larger families or when you have guests over, add a side dish. Nothing too rich though !
As I have mentioned above, this Teriyaki Beef and Greens Stir-Fry is quite rich and filling served only with a starch.
