Our recipe ideas always come from different cravings we have for foods that are most likely not low in carbs.

This teriyaki beef salad was exactly that and for those of you that are not aware, teriyaki sauce is full of sugar and therefore high in carbs.  One tablespoon contains about 3g of carbs.

That’s why we set out to make a low-carb/keto friendly teriyaki sauce.  We have used this teriyaki sauce to make teriyaki chicken, which by the way is a crowd favorite so don’t forget to check it out!

While making this recipe, I came up with the idea to make it a beef salad.  At first, my husband gave me a look of uncertainty but one bite and he was sold!  It’s the perfect combination and oh so refreshing!

The teriyaki sauce also acts as a dressing for the salad and it makes me think why they haven’t made a teriyaki flavored salad dressing?  Or have they?

So if you are a fan of teriyaki sauce, try out this easy 4 ingredient teriyaki beef salad out!  Can’t wait to hear what you think!

The special ingredients you will need to make this sauce are Japanese sake, Swerve/Monkfruit, Soy Sauce and Xanthan Gum (to thicken the sauce).

Here is the sake we normally use for reference.  You can purchase everything else on Amazon or a combination of local Asian and specialty supermarkets.

Now, let’s get started!

Prep Time 5M

Cooking Time 5M

Total Time 10M

Net Carb/Serv ~4g

Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lbs Beef Strips (Top Sirloin, Chuck, Rib-eye)
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/3 Head Romain Lettuce (or any lettuce you prefer)
  • 4 tbsp Japanese Sake
  • 2 tbsp Swerve/Monkfruit
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/8 tsp Xanthan Gum

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) Wash, cut and prepare lettuce as needed.  Set aside in fridge until ready to eat.

3) In a Teflon sauce pan, add Japanese Sake, Swerve/Monkfruit, Soy Sauce, Xanthan Gum and bring to boil.  Once boiling, reduce heat to med-low heat and let it cook for 2 minutes while continuously mixing to ensure Xanthan Gum dissolves.  Once 2 minutes has passed, remove from heat and set aside.  Note – you can strain the sauce to remove any leftover clumps of Xanthan Gum.

4) Use a paper towel to pat down any excess moisture from beef strips.  Sprinkle on salt and black pepper and set aside at room temperature.

5) In a small Teflon sauce pan, add beef strips on medium heat.  Cook for 30-60 seconds per side or until done to liking.

6) Place beef strips on top of chopped lettuce with a generous drizzle of teriyaki sauce.  Hope you enjoy!
