Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 2½-4 hours on low heat


Ingredients for Beef Teriyaki:

1½ pounds lean top sirloin steak or lean stew meat, cut into small bite-size pieces

1 (21 oz) bottle Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Less Sodium Marinade (use ½ bottle for this recipe) see shopping tips

1½ cups onions, chopped

1 teaspoon garlic, minced


Ingredients for Broccoli:

1 (14-16 ounce bag) frozen steam in bag broccoli florets, see shopping tips

¼ cup chopped scallions (white part and some of the green)


Instructions

1. Place the pieces of steak in crock-pot. In a medium bowl, mix together ½ bottle of teriyaki sauce, onions and garlic. Pour over steak pieces. Cover crock-pot and set to low heat. Cook until tender. I cut the beef into very small pieces and it took only 2½ hours to cook on low heat setting. If you use large pieces it can take 3-4 hours.

2. Once beef is cooked, prepare broccoli; Add frozen broccoli to a bowl. Cover and microwave on high heat for 6-7 minutes, until broccoli is tender crisp. Drain. Cut in half any broccoli pieces that are too large.

3. Drain any liquid from cooked broccoli. Using a rubber spatula so the broccoli doesn’t break, mix cooked broccoli in with the beef teriyaki.

4. Serve beef, broccoli and sauce over brown rice, cauliflower rice, steamed shredded cabbage, if desired.

5. Any leftovers freeze great.

Makes 6 servings. Each serving, 1 cup of beef, broccoli and sauce.


Shopping Tips

Choose a lean cut of steak or stew meat. I used a package of lean top sirloin cut into very small, bite size pieces.

Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Less Sodium Marinade can be found in most major supermarkets and Target. Here’s a link to their website to find where to buy it near you. https://www.soyvay.com/products/veri-veri-teriyaki-less-sodium/

I used a 14 oz bag frozen Birds Eye C&W broccoli florets. I always keep a bag on hand in my freezer. If you don’t want to use frozen, you can use fresh broccoli. Steam it first before adding to cooked teriyaki beef.
