Teriyaki Beef Casserole

Our VIRAL recipe for Teriyaki Chicken Casserole still goes crazy on our site every single month, but don’t we need a Teriyaki Beef Casserole too?!

There’s something really comforting to me about fried rice and teriyaki sauce, like in this Teriyaki Beef Casserole, which is based off of our Teriyaki Chicken Casserole recipe.

Maybe it’s because the smells are so warm and inviting?

Maybe because Teriyaki Chicken Quesadillas were one of the first recipes that I had created on my own, no inspiration, just something in my mind.

Or maybe it’s because of my mom and her love of “The Great Wall”, a restaurant we grew up around. Funny how the little things about our moms, dads or loved ones are what we later hold on to the tightest.

My mom, Carolyn Feik loved The Great Wall in Vancouver, Washington. I heard it shut down a while back, but I can literally picture ever seat, piece of artwork and the staff in my mind when I close my eyes. Maybe that’s why it feels so safe to eat teriyaki chicken and fried rice.

Mom’s Favorite Restaurant

I did not like The Great Wall when I was little. It would be my mom’s birthday and Dad would whisk us all (5 kids is a lot!) off to the restaurant and I’d grumble and whine and pout the whole way. And don’t even mention my silent treatment at the table during the meal. I know, horrible, horrible child.

In my defense, I was young and such an unfamiliar food was hard for my very picky palate.

Actually, there’s no excuse, I was wretched and you can ask my mom, I’ve apologized one hundred times over.

Until the fortune cookies came out. I was all over that. And the Chinese calendar where we discovered my sister was a monkey, I was a rat and so on. In fact, I even tried to make a homemade fortune cookie recipe and it was not worth my time at all.

Let’s get back to the important stuff, Teriyaki Beef Casserole. A combination of favorite flavors that remind me of my childhood and of my life as an adult, creating new things on my own.

Teriyaki Beef Casserole

How do you make Teriyaki Beef Casserole? It all starts with leftovers. Yes, I am going to save you from eating leftovers in a boring way.

Take leftover rice, turn it into fried rice, throw in teriyaki beef and stir fry veggies and you’ve got yourself all of the best things at a local Chinese restaurant in one bowl!

REGGS

Our friend, Cameron was recently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint and he mentioned to us that he had a little recipe he created when money was low.

He’d make rice, a more frugal food to buy, and end up with leftovers. Well what’s a 19 year old boy to do with leftover rice? He’s got the perfect solution, Reggs. Yes, that’s right, Rice and Eggs. MMmmmmmm, sounds delicious doesn’t it.

What Cameron didn’t realize was that he was halfway there to fried rice.

How to Make Fried Rice

We’ve got a fantastic post about How to Make Perfect Ham Fried Rice, so while I’ll give you all of the information you need for this recipe below, I highly encourage you to read up on how to make fried rice in that post first.

Teriyaki  Beef

I took our Easy Teriyaki Chicken recipe and substituted steak instead of the chicken. I marinated the steak for 1 hour, reserving some of the teriyaki sauce for later.

We like to use a flank steak for Teriyaki beef as it slices thinly so well and it’s big enough that I can use just half and leave the other, with marinade in the zip top bag in the freezer for a quick meal another time.

Just like with our Thai Peanut Steak Salad, pop the steak in the freezer for 15-20 minutes so that it’s easier to slice thin.

Heat a skillet to medium high heat with a dash of oil, and throw in the meat, stirring occasionally until cooked to the desired temperature.

Stir Fry Vegetables

Stir fried veggies are the last part of this Teriyaki Beef Casserole and you can do this part two way. If you are tight on time, go ahead and just buy a steam bag of vegetables or even fresh veggies and steam them yourself.

Or, if you are willing to take an extra 5 minutes, throw the veggies in a skillet with a little oil and garlic to really bump up the flavor.

Teriyaki Sauce

As I mentioned before, we reserve some of the teriyaki sauce so that when we are assembling the casserole we can top the whole thing with extra sauce, which is so, so good!!!

Don’t worry if you forget to set some aside, we’ve also added a dash of soy sauce if we were out of Teriyaki sauce and that totally works as well.

How to Make Teriyaki Beef Tender

Sometimes Teriyaki beef ends up dry and hard to chew.

I hate when that happens.

To make teriyaki beef tender, start with a good cut of meat that has been sliced thin properly. Part of the reason teriyaki beef gets chewy and dry is because people are cutting with the grain of the meat instead of against it. You should not be cutting the same way the lines are going in the meat, but perpendicular to them.

Flank or ribeye are great choices for the beef so that it’s got great flavor and slices thin.

Can Dogs Eat Teriyaki Beef?

It is high in sodium, so your dog may drink more, and sometimes foods that your dog is unfamiliar with may cause an upset stomach.

But,Teriyaki sauce doesn’t contain any ingredients that are harmful to dogs.

Is Teriyaki Beef Healthy?

Almost all the calories in Teriyaki sauce come from carbs.

Over all, teriyaki beef is not unhealthy. Just watch out for that sugar too though.

Is Teriyaki Beef Gluten Free?

The most common source of gluten in teriyaki sauce is Soy Sauce.

Unless the soy sauce is labeled gluten-free, it probably contains gluten. We really like to buy Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce and we aren’t even gluten free. It’s just a good product with good flavor.

  • This recipe is the BOMB! Oh my word. That sauce. Y’all recipes. Seriously. Y’all have really reinvigorated my love for cooking and trying something new. I’ve only had teriyaki a few times in my life and I’ve never made it until today. This will definitely be added to my recipe rotation. So simple yet so flavorful.

    • Hi Jasmine! The recipe for the teriyaki sauce is listed in the chicken casserole recipe (https://ohsweetbasil.com/teriyaki-chicken-casserole/):
      teriyaki sauce

      3/4 cup San-J Tamari soy sauce
      1/2 cup water
      1/3 cup brown sugar
      1 tablespoon honey
      3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
      1 teaspoon sesame oil
      1 small garlic clove, minced fine
      2 tablespoons corn starch
      2 tablespoons cold water

      As far as the beef, you’ll want a small flank steak about (0.5-1 lb).
