  1. Dissolve beef bouillon cube in boiling water in a large bowl. Stir soy sauce, cornstarch, teriyaki sauce, and sugar into the water. Lay beef strips into the soy sauce mixture; stir to coat beef entirely.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir vegetables in hot oil briefly, about 1 minute. Stir water chestnuts into the vegetable mixture, place a cover over the skillet, and cook at a simmer until the vegetables are hot, about 5 minutes. Remove vegetable mixture with a slotted spoon to a large bowl, reserving juices in the skillet.
  3. Pour beef with soy sauce marinade into the hot skillet; cook and stir until browned completely, about 5 minutes. Return vegetable mixture to the skillet; bring to a simmer. Cook and stir until completely hot, about 2 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I doubled the bouillon cubes and the meat. I did cook the meat first and added frozen veggies. There were no leftovers. It was great!! I'll definitely use this recipe again.

My husband, father-in-law, and I love this recipe! To save time on the meat, I buy "stew meat" so that it's already chopped up, and half those pieces to make them a tiny bit smaller. My family a...

I omitted the sugar and added green and yellow peppers and onion. I also replaced the beef bouillon with chicken bouillon. Turned out great!

Family like this....used a very lean and thin cut of steak called chip steak (normally used for cheese steaks) and 2 bags of frozen stir-fry veggies. I did omit the water chestnuts as my family ...

Really good! I cheated and bought pre chopped fresh peppers-all colors, mushrooms, onions, broccoli, asparagus and a can of water chestnuts. I also added garlic powder since I didn’t have fresh ...
