- Flank steak or London broil can be substituted for boneless beef sirloin steak.
- Braggs Natural Liquid Aminos - Soy Sauce Alternative (Gluten Free)
- Garlic Powder - ¼ teaspoon equals 1 clove of garlic
- Chicken broth can be substituted for beef broth for Like beef broth if you are all out of the meaty broth. It will yield a milder flavor than beef broth but is a good replacement.
- Add fresh ginger during the initial step for a more traditional teriyaki sauce flavor.
- Red bell pepper can be added for a sweet and slightly citrusy flavor which plays nicely off of the tender beef and crisp broccoli.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. I think it's even better for lunch the next day.
Make extra for a busy day freezer meal. Allow to cool completely and freeze for up to 3 months in an airtight freezer safe container.
