Teppanyaki is a Japanese style of cooking using a ‘teppan’- a flat iron plate or griddle -to grill or broil or fry food which is ‘yaki’ in japanese. How to cook beef teppanyaki without a teppan? Well, this is a bit of a cheat since I do not own a teppan, I only use regular frying pan but it works…
Add stir-fried vegetables like onion, mushrooms, carrots, green onion and serve with hot rice for a complete meal.
- 500g beef chunck (preferably sirloin or tenderloin)
- 3 Tbsp Soy Sauce
- 2 Tbsp + 1 Tbsp cooking sweet wine (Sherry, Marsala)- brandy can also be used
- 1 Tbsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp sugar
- 1 tsp ground pepper
- 3 Tbsp oil, for frying
- Cut the beef into really thin slices, about half centimeter or thinner.
- In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Leave to marinate for at least an hour.
- Heat oil in a frying pan or skillet on medium-high. Fry the beef slices. Place cooked slices on your serving dish.
- After the meat is cooked, using the same pan but on low heat, add the leftover marinade plus 1 tbsp of wine and let simmer for 1-2 minutes or until sauce is bit thicker.
- Pour sauce on top of the cooked beef and serve.
If you are not sure if your meat is tender, before frying, boil the meat with the marinade plus 1 cup of water in low heat for at least 30 minutes or until meat is soft.
