Teriyaki Stir Fry

I'm sharing with you another new family favorite recipe... TERIYAKI STIR FRY. My friend Rhonda led me to the IDEA of this recipe. While knowing the tastes of my family, I knew just soy sauce, salt and garlic powder in the recipe were not going to win them over,so  I had to do something else. We love Chinese saucy foods, and before we moved here we had a favorite Chinese buffet that served a teriyaki noodle dish, so I decided to make a teriyaki sauce to go the noodles and vegetables. What a dish, it is dee-lish!

Since I make a SOY SAUCE SUBSTITUTE, for all of my Chinese food recipes, this one was no different. I found THIS teriyaki sauce recipe and changed it a good bit since I was using my sauce. This is one of those recipes you can use any vegetable or you can even buy a bag of stir fry veggies. This particular day, I used a bag of vegetables and a mixture of spaghetti noodles. I had a quarter of a box of whole grain noodles and just mixed it in with regular noodles.



Teriyaki Sauce

1 cup Soy Sauce Substitute
¼ tsp garlic powder
4 TBSP packed brown sugar
1-2 TBSP honey
2 TBSP cornstarch

Make the soy sauce substitute in advance and let it sit so the flavors will do their thing. Over medium heat, add all the ingredients and whisk until there are no lumps from the cornstarch. Cook until thickened.** You may want to taste your sauce while adding the sugar and honey, to keep it from being too sweet.**

Noodle Stir Fry

3 TBSP  oil
1 onion sliced
½ bell pepper diced
1 clove minced fresh garlic
Vegetables - whatever you fancy!
1 pound spaghetti noodles

In a skillet, heat oil and cook vegetables and garlic together – cooking on medium heat until vegetables tender. Boil the spaghetti noodles in water and drain. Stir cooked vegetables and noodle together. Add teriyaki sauce and stir to coat.

This is another winner for my frugal, meatless meal ideas. YAHOO!

  1. Hi Lori, I am glad you all like it as much as we do. Knowing your family's tastes is the key to happy meals too.
    I want to cook up another batch soon to have for my weekday lunches. Today I am cooking a crockpot full of pintos for freezer Refried beans. Lean ground beef was $5.99 at my favorite grocery meat counter, that is too high so I am also on the lookout for meatless meals
