Ingredients

For the Teriyaki Sauce

  • ¼ c soy sauce
  • 3 T brown sugar
  • 1 c water, divided
  • 2 T honey
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 T corn starch

For the Stir Fry

  • 1 lb Turkey
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 16 oz. package frozen broccoli florets
  • 1 leek, green removed and chopped
  • 1 T orange zest (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

For the Teriyaki Sauce

  • Combine ¾ cup water, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, honey, and brown sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Stir to combine.
  • Bring to a low boil. Whisk ¼ c water and corn starch together well until corn starch is completely dissolved. Slowly stir in the corn starch mixture (slurry) and allow to thicken. Remove from heat immediately and set aside until ready to add to stir fry.

For the Stir Fry

  • Add the sesame oil to a wok or skillet over medium high heat. Add the leeks or onion to skillet and heat for several minutes to soften. Add in the turkey and heat until fully cooked (165°F should be internal temperature.), about 7-10 minutes.
  • Add in the broccoli and cook until heated through and tender. Change the heat to low and stir in the Teriyaki sauce. Simmer for several minutes until ready to serve. Add the orange zest if desired.
  • Serve over rice or as desired!

Notes

  • You can certainly use another kind of ground meat if desired. Chicken, pork or beef would still be delicious.
  • For a kick of head, add in some cayenne or red pepper flakes. A touch of siracha is great as well!
  • If you teriyaki is too thick, add in some water until desired thickness.
