I make my own teriyaki sauce here, but you could also use store bought. I pair it with braised beef and snow peas, but any protein and vegetable can work with this method. Check out this and other stir-fry ideas in the original video here.

Add a splash of to the sauce and bring it back to a simmer. Check the thickness and repeat until you've reached your desired consistency.

Lastly, taste the sauce and add a spoonful of sugar if needed.

Step 2: Stir-fry the peas & the beef

Add in the braised beef, which is already fully cooked, it just needs to be heated and mixed with the peas.
