Beef Teriyaki Bento Recipe

Beef Teriyaki Bento Ingredients

  • 2 beef steaks
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

TIP: A quick sear of the beef on both sides gives it a little colour and the steak will finish cooking while the teriyaki sauce reduces in the same pan.

Beef Teriyaki Cooking Instructions

  1. Firstly combine brown sugar, mirin, soya saunce and sake in a bowl and stir the ingredients to combine. If your steak is lean rub a teaspoon of cooking oil onto each steak.
  2. Heat a wok over high heat until the bottom of the pan is hot and add the beef steaks, sear on both sides until browned.
  3. With the beef still in the pan pour in your teriyaki sauce and let it boil.
  4. Flip over the steaks repeatedly until the teriyaki sauce has reduced and each steak is in a thick shiny glaze.
  5. Let the beef steaks rest for a few minutes and transfer to a cutting board and slice with a sharp knife.
  6. Pour any remaining sauce over the sliced steaks and garnish with chopped spring onion or sesame seeds.
  7. Let it rest for five minutes and serve.
