Teppanyaki is a Japanese style of cooking using a ‘teppan’- a flat iron plate or griddle -to grill or broil or fry food which is ‘yaki’ in Japanese. How to cook beef teppanyaki without a teppan? Well, this is a bit of a cheat since I do not own a teppan, I only use regular frying pan but it works…
Add stir-fried vegetables like onion, mushrooms, carrots, green onion and serve with hot rice for a complete meal.
Beef Teppanyaki made Easy
- 1 pound beef chunck - (preferably sirloin or tenderloin)

- Cut the beef into really thin slices, about half centimeter or thinner.
- In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the marinade together. Add the beef slices and mix well. Leave to marinate for at least an hour.
- Heat oil in a frying pan or skillet on medium-high. Fry the beef slices. Place cooked slices on your serving dish.
- After the meat is cooked, using the same pan but on low heat, add the leftover marinade plus 1 tablespoon of wine and let simmer for 1-2 minutes or until sauce is bit thicker.
