How to Make Grilled Teriyaki Steak

Whisking the marinade ingredients in a bowl

Step 1 – Put all of the ingredients except the steak in a small bowl. Mix until well combined.

Step 2 – Put the steaks in a large bowl or gallon size ziploc bag. Add the marinade and put in the fridge. Let the steaks marinade for at least 4 hours but longer is even better. I like to do over night.

  • Step 3 – Remove the steaks from the refrigerator about an hour before you are ready to grill. The steaks need time to come to room temperature.
  • Step 4 – Heat the grill up to 400 degrees or medium-high heat. I also like to spray or wipe oil onto the grill grates to help prevent the steaks from sticking to the grill.
  • Step 5 – Put the steaks on the hot grill and allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes depending on your preference as to how well done you like your steaks.
  • Step 6 – Flip the steak and cook the other side for an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Step 7 – Once the steaks have finished cooking, take off the grill and let them rest at least 5 minutes before cutting.

Recipe Tips

  • Stove Top – You can also make this on the stove top in a cast iron skillet. Use a little sesame oil to cook the steak. This is great for a Easy Beef Stir Fry Recipe cut into strips and you can add any veggies you like.
  • Marinading Steak – Let the steak marinade at least for several hours if possible. Overnight is best!

How to Know When Steak is Done

You can use a meat thermometer when grilling to make sure it is cooked to your preference. This gadget is so handy and a must have in the kitchen.

Easy Side ideas

  • Rice I love serving this steak over rice with sesame seeds and green onions. The teriyaki sauce is delicious over the rice. You can also freeze rice and have an easy side dish for during the week.
  • Mashed potatoes Steak and potatoes! Always a hit! Spoon some of that sauce over the mashed potatoes. Yum!
  • Veggies- If you want something green with this, try steamed broccoli. The microwave makes it so easy and takes just minutes. We also like Green beans and Oven Roasted Asparagus. You can also serve it with a simple side salad.
  • Garlic Bread. Since you are already grilling, try making our Grilled Garlic Bread Recipe.
  • Grilled Watermelon – Light and refreshing side dish.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do you Grill Teriyaki Steak without Burning it?

Make sure to bring your steak to room temperature before placing on the grill. Grill the steak over high heat for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side depending your desired doneness. Make sure to oil the grill grates to ensure your steak does not stick.

How Long to Marinate Steak before Grilling?

We recommend marinating steak for about 60 minutes in the fridge prior to grilling it. We think the longer it is in the marinade the better it taste.

How to Store Leftover Teriyaki Steak

Store the leftover steak in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The steak will stay fresh for 3-5 days. We think it taste even better the next day.
