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.
This is another winner for my frugal, meatless meal ideas.
Teriyaki Stir Fry
1 cup Soy Sauce or Substitute
1/4 tsp garlic powder
4 TBSP packed brown sugar
1-2 TBSP honey
2 TBSP cornstarch
Noodle Stir Fry
3 TBSP oil
1 onion sliced
1/2 bell pepper diced
1 clove minced garlic
vegetables - whatever you fancy
1 pound spaghetti noodles
Teriyaki Sauce: Make the soy sauce substitute in advance and let it sit so the flavors will do their thing. If you’re using regular soy sauce - 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.
Stir Fry: In a skillet, heat oil and cook vegetables and garlic together, cooking over medium heat until veggies are tender. Boil the noodles in water until your liking and drain. Stir cooked veggies and noodles together. Add teriyaki sauce and stir until everything is coated well.
