Let’s Get Cooking
Now for the fun part, cooking these juicy steak bites!
Prep the Steak
Begin by slicing up your steaks into cubes and then place them in a food-safe bowl. Add in the teriyaki, minced garlic, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, and sesame seed oil. Mix thoroughly, then cover and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours, but ideally overnight, to marinate.
Preheat Your Grill
Preheat your grill to high heat (about 400F). Add a plancha or large skillet to the grill with oil to preheat for 2 minutes before cooking.
Pull out your steak and drain any excess liquid from the marinade. Then, add your steak to the hot skillet to cook for 4-5 minutes or until 125F internal, making sure to flip and move around frequently.
Add your steaks in batches if needed, so you do not overcrowd the skillet. When the steak is done, pull it off and keep warm.
Cook the Steak
Now, time for the rice. Start by adding a wok to the grill or clean off your previously used skillet. Next, add some oil and then your whipped eggs. Cook slowly until done, then pull off and keep warm.
Next, fry your minced garlic, ginger, and white scallions. Cook for 1.5 minutes until golden brown, then add your cooked rice and soy sauce. Stir frequently for 2 minutes. Finally, add your eggs and green scallions back to the wok and mix them.
Top the fried rice with the cooked steak, sriracha, and green scallions. Serve and enjoy!
What to Serve with Garlic Teriyaki Steak Bites
There are numerous dishes that go well with tender bites of steak. Serving them as a main dish over a bed of steaming white or brown rice is a straightforward and traditional option that offers a neutral background for the savory steak bites.
Various veggies, including roasted asparagus, steamed broccoli, or sauteed bell peppers, could also be served with them. You could also do the steak bites with a side of noodles, like udon or soba, or with a salad cooked with fresh greens and a tangy dressing for a more substantial and full meal.
Alternatively, you might include the steak bites with other small morsels like edamame, dumplings, or sushi as part of a larger variety of appetizers or tapas-style meals. It would also be great with a simple side of mashed potatoes, whatever sounds good to you!
Bites of garlic teriyaki steak should ideally cool to room temperature before being placed in an airtight container for storage. This will aid in avoiding condensation inside the container, which could result in spoiling.
In addition, the moisture from the heat will condense on the inside of the lid if the steak bites are still warm when you place them in the container. This could make the steak bites soggy or degrade more quickly. After the steak bites have cooled, you may keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months or in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
To enjoy your leftover steak bites, heat your steak bits by microwaving them for 30-second intervals, or you can heat them in a pan over medium-high heat until they are warmed to your desired temperature.
There’s just something about these delicious steak bites I can’t get enough of! They are so versatile and easy to serve with your favorite sides any time of the week!
