DELICIOUS BEEF TERIYAKI | SLIMMING WORLD

Tender strips of beef in a delicious sauce make this Beef Teriyaki the ultimate low syn meal when served with some rice and stir fried veg.
I love beef teriyaki, fast fried tender strips of beef, with a delicious sweet soy sauce.
The traditional sauce for teriyaki usually consists of quite a bit of sugar, soy sauce, mirin and sake, to make a thick syrupy sauce, but on Slimming World that works out too high in syns. But you can make a lighter style sauce, that tastes just as good and really helps satisfy the cravings for this amazing dish.

DELICIOUS BEEF TERIYAKI | SLIMMING WORLD


Ingredients
  • 400g/14oz of lean thin beef strip, sliced into smaller pieces (or substitute with chicken or shrimp)
  • 2 tbs of soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • 100ml of water 
  • 1 tbs of brown sugar (or honey) (2.5 syns)
  • 1 tsp of sesame oil (2 syns)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp of grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ tsp of onion powder
  • ¼ tsp of ground ginger
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • sesame seeds to garnish
  • spray oil

Instructions
  • In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, water, sugar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, onion powder. Set Aside
  • Place the beef strips in a bowl and spray with spray oil, to coat well.
  • Heat a wok over a medium high heat.
  • Add the beef strips once wok is hot and fry till lightly golden. (this is important as you want to sear the beef, add it when the wok is too cold and it will just boil and become tough)
  • Remove and set aside.
  • Add the sauce to the wok and heat until it reduces down and thickens a little.
  • Add the beef strips back into the wok with the sauce and fry for a further 2 mins just to coat the beef in the sauce.
  • Sprinkle with finely sliced spring onions and a teeny sprinkle of sesame seeds.
  • Serve with your choice of sides. I served mine with stir fried shredded veg and steamed white rice (cauliflower rice will be perfect for those on a SP day or doing paleo)
