Ready In:




  • Slice Steak into 2-3 inch strips as thin as you can do safely. Clean all Vegetables and slice into strips Julienne style. Now is a good time to premix your sauce since you will be very busy with stir frying later when you need to add it inches Mix Soy Sauce, Sugar, Ginger, Garlic, Pepper, Red Pepper, and 1/2 Cup of Water. Stir Well to mix and set aside.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp of Olive oil in a Wok (or a large Sauce Pan) on high heat. Stir fry Steak strips until browned ( i usually let them boil in their own juices for a few extra minutes to ensure maximum tenderness). Drain fat from steak strips, add the remainder of your Olive oil and all your Vegetables except Broccoli and Bean Sprouts. Stir fry on High until vegetable are Tender Crisp (about 3-4 minutes) now add your Broccoli and Bean Sprouts ( if you add them to early they will wither and become mushy) stir fry an additional 2 Minutes. Now give your sauce a quick stir and add it into the Wok. Stir fry the mixture about 30 seconds. Now mix the remaining 1/2 cup of water with your cornstarch to make a slurry. Add the slurry slowly into your wok stirring as you go. Once the color of the juice in the wok starts to lighten stop adding the slurry. Reduce heat to medium and stir constantly for about 30 seconds as the sauce turns to a glaze. Serve immediately, best over Fried Rice.

  1. Sorry. This is neither authentic, nor sukiyaki. Sukiyaki is a Japanese hot pot dish, cooked, served and eaten all at the dining table. Sukiyaki is a communal family dish prepared by dipping meat, vegetables, etc, in to boiling broth a little at a time and eaten immediately. Everyone gathers around and cooks their own meal. Shabu Shabu is a smiliar Japanese hot pot dish. This sounds like a good stirfry recipe that uses a wok, which is Chinese, and mixes all ingredients together, but not anything close to Japanese sukiyaki.
