Teriyaki Steak Bites Recipe


  • 1 lb beef sirloin or tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into slices
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey or brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Marinate the Steak:

In a bowl, mix soy sauce, honey (or brown sugar), minced garlic, and grated ginger. Add the steak cubes and marinate for at least 30 minutes, or for enhanced flavor, marinate for up to 2 hours.

Prepare Vegetables:

While the steak is marinating, slice the green bell pepper and onion into bite-size pieces.

Cook the Steak:

  1. Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Remove the steak from the marinade, keeping the marinade aside.
  3. Cook the steak in the skillet until it’s browned and reaches your desired level of doneness. Once cooked, remove the steak from the skillet and set it aside.

Cook the Vegetables:

  1. In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of oil if needed.
  2. Add the bell pepper and onion to the skillet and cook until they are tender yet still crisp.

Make the Teriyaki Sauce:

  1. While the vegetables are cooking, dissolve cornstarch in water in a small bowl.
  2. Pour the reserved marinade into the skillet with the vegetables.
  3. Add the cornstarch mixture to the skillet and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  4. Cook until the sauce thickens to your desired consistency.


Return the cooked steak bites to the skillet with the vegetables and sauce. Stir well to combine everything and heat through. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper according to your taste.


Serve your delicious Teriyaki Steak Bites hot, preferably over rice or noodles. Garnish with sesame seeds or sliced green onions for added flavor and presentation.
