Teriyaki Stir Fry

12 Aug

I am convinced: head colds are of the Devil. Seriously. You feel so terrible that you don’t want to function, and yet not quite terrible enough to justify it. So, you just end up plodding through your day, grumping and growling and blowing your poor, red nose and coughing pitifully. Not cool. And not conducive to creative cooking. It’s really kind of awesome that there are recipes that don’t require much brain power just in case those nasty head colds strike – they don’t require too much prep, but they taste and look like they did. Huzzah. I would add an exclamation mark at the end of that ‘huzzah,’ but I just don’t have the energy. Sniff, cough, cough. The Devil made me do it.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup teriyaki sauce

2 Tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp rice vinegar

1 Tbsp cornstarch

1 Tbsp oil

1 lb chicken or beef, cubed

vegetables of choice – I am lazy and usually use frozen mixed vegetables, and frozen sweet corn; this time we had some fresh peas from the garden!

In a small bowl, whisk together teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, and vinegar. Dissolve cornstarch in 1 Tbsp water and stir into the sauce mixture; set aside. In a wok or large skillet, heat oil and stir fry chicken until cooked through. Add vegetables and cook about 2 minutes more until vegetables soften. Add sauce to wok and stir until sauce is thickened. Serve over rice.
