Monica's Beef Teriyaki

My husband and 6 year old son regularly request this recipe when it is their turn to pick a meal. They are more than willing to wait the marinading time for the end results. I accompany this dish with steamed broccoli with cheese sauce and 2nd's and 3rd's are frequent.

This is very yumpy!!! The adults and the kids all loved it - some times this is hard to do! Instead of sherry wine, I used a nice red wine and added 1/2 cup of brown sugar to the ingredients. It was very good, and I will be making this again - for sure!!!

I made this and it was very very salty. is it correct to add 1 cup soy sauce and sherry. It was so salty we couldnt it eat.
