One skillet entrées like these Teriyaki Steak Bites with green pepper and onion will make you think you're dining at a steakhouse rather than at your own kitchen table. It features tender bite-size pieces of sirloin steak that are seasoned and smothered with a flavorful sauce. I like to pair it with green bell pepper and onion wedges which expands the flavor profile and adds color, too.
Easy Teriyaki Steak Bites Recipe
I love making skillets that start with steak tips. It gives me the opportunity to stretch my grocery budget and serve skillets like this one seasoned with a flavorful teriyaki sauce and enhanced by the addition of peppers and onions to add bulk. I'm feeding boys after all, and it can be a challenge at times to fill them up. This simple skillet fits the bill much like my smothered steak tips with mushrooms and onion and sirloin steak tips with colorful peppers and onion that can be wrapped-up in a tortilla and turned into fajitas with ease.
How to Make the Best Teriyaki Steak Bites Recipe
- Ingredients you'll need to make homemade Teriyaki Steak Bites: Top sirloin, olive oil, teriyaki sauce, light brown sugar, garlic powder, garlic salt, cornstarch, toasted sesame seed oil, green bell pepper and onion.
- Kitchen tools you'll need: A large 12 inch skillet, sharp knife and cutting board, whisk, measuring cups and spoons, large spoon for stirring and a small bowl.
- You can make this teriyaki steak skillet using another kind of steak. When doing so, adjust the cooking time depending on the cut that you choose to use. Cook the steak to your desired level of doneness and the only thing left to do is grab a fork and dig in.
- You could also use a red or yellow bell pepper or a variety of peppers like fajitas. Regardless, the flavor combination is still Asian inspired.
- Toasted sesame oil adds a punch of flavor to the steak bites. A little goes a long way so be mindful and use the amount called for in the recipe.
- Store cooked Teriyaki Steak Bites chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently in a skillet over medium heat or in an air fryer. I don't recommend reheating steak in the microwave.
- Side dishes to serve with steak bites: Teriyaki Rice with Mushrooms and Peas, you could also serve them over Oven Baked Rice or with a side of Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole and Roasted Panko Parmesan Broccoli. You could never go wrong with a Wedge Salad drizzled with bleu cheese dressing.

Could I let the steak bites sit in the sauce in the fridge for a couple days before cooking?
You could do that up to one day in advance but I wouldn't recommend longer.
Great recipe! Easy….with phenomenal taste! I will definitely be making this again!
I'm so happy you enjoyed it, thanks!
The sauce was too salty for me. Next time I'll use 1/4 or 1/2 tsp of garlic salt. Otherwise it was delicious. I cooked my meat in the slow cooker on high for about 4-5 hours before stir frying it. Came out great.
If you're salt sensitive you can always adapt the amount. I also wonder if you used less meat, onion and bell peppers as 1 teaspoon is not too much for the amount of ingredients. That said, salt is completely subjective. You may choose low sodium teriyaki sauce as well.
This is actually the best meal in the whole world. I sometimes make coconut rice with it but I usually eat this on it’s own. It’s UNREAL. Sometimes I double the sauce for fun as well and because I like it a bit saucier and it’ll add it at the end. Seriously delicious recipe!
Just tried this recipe and yum!!!!!! Definitely a keeper.
Thanks so much!
Delicious, my family loved your recipe.. It was fast and easy!
I used Kikkoman Teriyaki marinade & sauce... I work full time this was definitely doable after working all day, thank you!
Thanks so much!
Very good! Th family loved it. Will make again. Used kikkoman teriyaki sauce and I do love that brand. If others have trouble with th salt or whatever, switching brands of teriyaki sauce might help?
