Warm up with a juicy teriyaki-glazed steak

Teriyaki, a sweet sauce, glazes juicy steak for this quick meal. Frozen diced onion, minced garlic and sliced mushrooms, already prepared in the supermarket, are added to bottled teriyaki sauce to give it a homemade touch.

Toasted sesame oil lends a nutty flavor to the side dish of Chinese noodles. It can be found in the oil section of most supermarkets. Steamed or fresh Chinese noodles can be found in the produce section of the market. They do not keep well. Use them within a day or use dried Chinese noodles.

TERIYAKI GLAZED STEAK

3/4 pound skirt steak

Vegetable oil spray

1 cup frozen or fresh chopped/diced onion

4 teaspoons minced garlic

¼ pound sliced button mushrooms (about 1 ½-cups)

¼ cup low-sodium teriyaki sauce

Remove visible fat from meat. Heat a medium-size nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and spray with vegetable oil spray. Add steak and saute 3 minutes per side if thin or 4 minutes per side if thicker. A meat thermometer should read 145 degrees for rare and 160 for medium. Remove to cutting board. Add the onion, garlic and mushrooms to the skillet and cook 2 minutes, breaking up large mushroom slices with the edge of a cooking spoon. Add the teriyaki sauce and saute 1 minute. Slice the steak and divide between two plates. Spoon the vegetables and glaze over the steak.

Yield 2 servings.

CHINESE NOODLES

¼ pound fresh or steamed Chinese noodles or dried noodles

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

6 scallions, sliced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Add noodles to boiling water. Cook 1 minute or according to package instructions. Drain return to pot and add sesame oil, scallions and salt and pepper to taste.

Yield 2 servings.
