BEEF TERIYAKIWe marinated a sirloin steak in a teriyaki sauce overnight. The sauce contained: equal portions of MIRIN, Sake, soy sauce and sugar. We used 2 tablespoons of each.
The sirloin steak (together with the sauce) was fried according to our taste - then the steak was removed and rested. During the cooking time, the sauce reduced and caramelised nicely.
RICEWe cooked some basmati rice earlier on in the day then left it to cool. The cold rice was cooked in oil (we used groundnut) together with one beaten egg and peas. This was absolutely delicious and so very delicate in flavour. We are certainly going to eat this again - perhaps adding a few fried onions and mushrooms maybe.
SAUCEThe side dish was pak choi cooked briefly.The sauce for the pak choi was the same as we used for the steak (uncooked).
Each steak was around 175g (approx 260 calories). The fried rice amounted to approx 250 calories each - no more than 300 calories, so we estimate the whole meal to have been somewhere around 550 to 600 calories.
NOTE: We can understand why teriyaki salmon is popular now, and plan to make this next time. We also think the sauce will could work with a slow cooked piece of meat, so we might experiment with that another day.
