Teriyaki Steak Bites

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 Teriyaki Steak with Peppers and Onion: (Scroll down for full printable recipe.)

  • Steak – Cut the steak into bite size cubes about 3/4-inch.
  • Marinade – Whisk together the teriyaki, brown sugar, corn starch, sesame oil, garlic powder, garlic salt and red pepper flakes. Whisk until the brown sugar and cornstarch are completely dissolved. Pour over the steak bites and toss until evenly coated.
  • Heat Oil – Drizzle a large skillet (12-inch) with olive oil. Turn to high heat.
  • Cook – Fry the steak bites in batches. Cook for 4-6 minutes total on both sides turning as needed. Adjust the cooking time to your desired doneness. Remove to a platter and keep warm until all of the steak bites are cooked. Add additional olive oil between batches as needed.
  • Green Pepper and Onion – Add the green pepper and onion to the skillet. Saute for 2-3 minutes over medium-high or until crisp tender. Adjust the salt, if needed. (The drippings left behind in the pan will season the vegetables)
  • Combine – Add the steak bites back to the skillet and stir to distribute.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and serve immediately with rice, baked potatoes, mashed potatoes or any of your favorite sides.

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 oil or sesame 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.
  • I use toasted sesame oil in this recipe. You can use plain sesame oil in the same amount, if desired.
  • 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.

    This Teriyaki Steak bite is so delicious! I used Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade And Sauce and added a bit of Kikkoman Ponzu Citrus Seasoned Dressing & Sauce on the meat for an added twist of flavor. Best paired with my favorite Cold Barley Tea.

        Hi Melissa! I just tried this and it was so easy, fast and delicious! I used some petite sirloins that I had and they were perfect.
        Thank you sharing. Looking forward to try some of your other recipes:)

    I have made this three times and always delicious. The only change I make is to use
    1 1/2- 2 lbs of petite sirloin. The amount of liquid is perfect for this amount. I put it on top of packaged garlic mashed potatoes. Delicious!

  3. It was a good dish. I only used 1 pond of meat since it’s just the two of us and used a red bell pepper. I did half the sauce but I would make the full sauce next time. Served it over rice and had an arugula salad.

    Loved the flavor profile on this!!! It was delicious. I made some tweeks with thin sliced meat and doubled the sauce with broccoli and rice. Great Job!

  5. Melissa. I cooked this delicious recipe last night,for my husband birthday
    everybody loved it,thank you for sharing.

  6. Something doesn’t add up here. 3 1/2 lbs is a lot of meat and this recipe is making very little marinade (only 1/4 of liquid). What am I missing?

    1. The liquid in this recipe isn’t a marinade. Marinades are generally larger amounts of liquid with meat placed into a bag to soak or marinate overnight. The liquid in this dish is a seasoning and it coats and seasons the meat. A larger amount of liquid won’t result in browned steak. You can, of course, add more if you want to, just please note, it will change how the meat fries.

  7. Im going to use a roast of alpaca. I will cook the meat in the pressure cooker( to ensure tenderness) and cook the vegetables seperatly, combine and throw under the broiler to give it a bit of a char. then serve with rice and french fries. I live in Peru , thats what they expect. I think it will turn out like lomo saltado but using a tougher cut of meat. Personally I would prefer USA mashed potatoes. But here the mashed potatoes are like cream soup It was delish! Even the kids liked it

    I used red, yellow & orange sweet peppers instead of green peppers. It tasted great & gave the meal some great color.

  9. 5 stars
    Delicious! I just used 1 lb of steak because it’s just 3 of us tonight. I also added about a teaspoon of fresh ginger to the marinade. I didn’t have a full pepper so I added a whole zucchini cut into bite size pieces. The sauce is delicious. Served with white rice.

  10. 5 stars
    This was quick easy and super easy. I paired it with steamed white rice. Omit pepper flakes if you don’t like spicy. Otherwise so good!!!

    This was delicious. I added a little extra garlic powder at the end and some salt and pepper. I didn’t have garlic salt so skipped it. I served with sour cream and chive mashed potatoes. Yummy!
