Lazy Dinner Teriyaki Tips

Can you believe I haven't posted a "Lazy Dinner" post since 2017?  With COVID shifting schedules and working from home, it's not like we haven't been eating lazy dinners... so I'm not sure why I haven't posted an new one! 

Anyway, this recipe is a a quintessential Lazy Dinner. It's really quick (relying on a faux meat product), super easy, and delicious. Plus, its versatile! If you don't want Asian flavors one evening, use the same technique but switch to different flavors. 

Maggie's Lazy Dinner Teriyaki Tips
2 bags of Gardein "beefless tips"
6 T. low-sodium soy sauce
3.5 T. seasoned rice wine vinegar
1 T. unseasoned rice wine vinegar
1 T. toasted sesame oil
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 1/2 T. cornstarch

1. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the beefless tips in a little bit of oil until they are hot and browned. 
2. Meanwhile, add all other ingredients to jar with a tight-fitting lid, shaking well to combine. 
3. When tips are hot and browned, shake the jar one more time then pour into the pan with the tips. Continue to cook, stirring well, until sauce is thick and coats all the tips. 

Helpful Hints
  • We eat these as is, but you could certainly serve them over rice. 
  • To make this a truly lazy dinner, microwave a bag of rice and a veggie and you've got a well-balanced meal in less than 10 minutes. 
  • Many grocery stores carry Gardein brand products, but may or may not carry these beefless tips. Where I live, I can generally find them at one grocery store (even though they've been sold out for weeks...), but not necessarily at others.
