Prep

  1. Rice - Double if making Wednesday night's dinner. For white rice, rinse until clear. Fill a saucepan or Dutch oven (or rice cooker) with rice, water (use 2:1 ratio for water to rice) and some salt. Cover with lid and bring to a boil. Once water boils, stir, lower heat to a low-medium and cover. Check white rice after ~20 min; brown at ~45 min. Rice is done when it's absorbed all the water. If it's not done, leave the cover on until all water has been absorbed. Take cover off to release steam and fluff with a wooden spoon after 5 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Broccolini / Bell peppers / Mushrooms / Green onions / Ginger / Garlic / - Prep as directed and store separately. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)

Make

  1. Heat a skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add ginger, garlic, first part of water, soy sauce and sugar and heat until it begins to simmer, ~5 minutes. Whisk cornstarch into second part of water and stir into sauce.
  2. Heat wok over medium-high heat. Add first part of cooking oil and then mushrooms to heated oil. Saute until golden and tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add bell peppers and continue cooking until peppers are shimmering but still have a bit of crunch, about 2 minutes more. Set mushrooms and peppers aside.
  3. Return wok to heat and add second part of cooking oil. Add broccolini with a sprinkle of salt. Saute until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Return mushrooms and peppers to pan and add teriyaki sauce. Cook just until it begins to simmer.
  4. If you made rice ahead, reheat in the microwave (remember to save half the rice if you doubled for Wednesday).
  5. Serve stir-fry over rice with green parts of green onions on top. Enjoy!

Should have listened to the other reviewers and reduce the soy sauce because it was definitely salty! I think a note in the recipe to halve it if you're not using low-sodium soy sauce would have been helpful. I also added more panko to help the meatballs stay together.

The sauce was awesome! The turkey meatballs soaked the sauce and went well with Basmati rice. Definitely making this again!

I doubled the sauce as many recommended, but found that was too much for me. No harm in doubling it and saving what’s left for a lunch, though! I used only 2/3 of the listed sugar and found that was perfect.
