Ingredients

Teriyaki Sauce

  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • cup water
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger paste or use ½ teaspoon dried ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic or garlic paste
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Ground Beef Teriyaki

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 lb lean ground beef I use 93/7
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cups chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots I use baby carrots

Instructions

  • In a saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine the soy sauce, water, sugars, rice vinegar, ginger, and garlic. Stir with a whisk. Bring to a boil.
  • Combine the warm water and cornstarch and mix together with a fork until the cornstarch is dissolved. Once the teriyaki sauce is boiling, pour the cornstarch slurry into it and reduce the heat to medium-low. Let it simmer and thicken while the ground beef cooks.
  • In a skillet pan, over medium high heat, cook and crumble the ground beef, sesame oil, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt until the beef is no longer pink. Drain.
  • Add the chopped broccoli, carrots, and the thickened teriyaki sauce into the pan. Stir together and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium and let it simmer for 15 minutes.
    * I always put a lid on the skillet pan during this so the broccoli and carrots will get soft and cook faster.
  • Once vegetables are to your liking (we like ours soft so I cook it for the full 15 minutes) serve it over cooked rice, noodles, brown rice, or anything else of your choice. Garnish with green onions.

Notes

Broccoli & Carrots : Make sure to chop these really small! The cook time is only 15 minutes which is not enough to soften large chunks of broccoli or carrots. I use baby carrots which makes it easy because they are already small and all you have to do is slice them really thin. 
Leftovers : Keep really well covered in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. I just heat leftovers up in the microwave. 
Sesame Oil : This adds great flavor but if you don't have any then substitute with some extra virgin light olive oil . Or just leave it out since ground beef naturally has higher fat in it. 
Nutrition Information : Calories listed is for one serving of the ground beef teriyaki (about ½ cup). It does not include the rice or whatever else you serve with it.
