Cooking Tips

  • If beef isn’t your thing, then you can also do this dish with chicken instead. Both variations work incredibly well, so it just comes down to personal preference.
  • As I mentioned above, make sure you use a cheap cut of beef like rump or round for the best results.
  • You can use jar teriyaki sauce instead of making one from scratch. Just use one and a half cups of the teriyaki sauce and leave all the ingredients out except the beef. You might still need to thicken it with the cornstarch at the end of cooking.
