Earlier this month, when I talked about grocery shopping on a budget, one of the staples that I mentioned buying pretty regularly was stew meat. I have two recipes that I use most regularly when making something with stew meat (and I NEVER make stew, I don’t like it.) Recently though, I was looking for something new and different to make with the beef. I did a search of Allrecipes.com and I found one. The recipe called for cooking the stew meat through, throwing in broccoli and onions and adding a teriyaki sauce to it while it simmers and everything cooks through. I figured I’d try it out since I almost always have broccoli on hand and I had an onion. So, I went on Allrecipes.com again and found a teriyaki sauce recipe.
The end result, a one-dish meal (I love one-dish meals) that got all thumbs up all around and looked like this:
Below is the recipe for the sauce as I found it on Allrecipes.com.
Restaurant Style Teriyaki Sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
1/2 tsp. grd. ginger
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
5 Tbl. packed brown sugar
1-2 Tbl. honey
2 Tbl. cornstarch
1/4 c. cold water
1) Mix soy sauce, one cup water, ginger, garlic powder, brown sugar and honey in small sauce pan.
2) Mix cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water together in a measuring cup.
3) Add the cornstarch and water to the pan of sauce.
Heat to desired thickness, add water to thin.
I served this on a bed of brown rice.
