beef teriyaki recipe

You can’t beat a home-cooked roast. Fact!

I’m a huge fan of roasts with all the traditional trimmings (I’m a Yorkshire girl so LOVE my Yorkshire puds however I also like to mix it up with more unusual marinades (there’s more to a roast than gravy baby)!

And roasts aren’t just for Sundays peeople – they also make the perfect mid-week dinner too! Now I imagine a few of you probably scoffed at that statement. We’re busy mamas with deadlines, kids to look after and households to run. The prospect of cooking a full roast too..? No way José!

But this is where marvellous mini roasts come in. Quick and easy to prepare and perfectly sized for 2 to share. My recipe below fed two little ones too.

I’ve always loved Eastern-inspired flavours and one of my favourite mini-roasts is Teriyaki Beef which I’m sharing today.

I just love how versatile mini roasts can be and you can add nut crusts if you like and you can try your hand at mini Greek lamb roasts or add this delicious sweet chilli and teriyaki marinade too.

When choosing my meat I always look out for the Red Tractor logo – whether it’s beef or lamb – as a mark of quality. It means the meat is 100% British and traceable from farm to folk.

I made a video showing how easy mini-roasts are to prepare.

Watch it below and get some foodie inspiration.

Here’s my recipe:

recipe for beef teriyaki


Teriyaki Beef

Serves 2

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time:

40-50 minutes (for medium)


  • 1 x 400-450g beef mini roast (we used beef topside)
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • 15 ml/1 tbsp rapeseed or sunflower oil
  • 60 ml/4 tbsp prepared teriyaki sauce
  • 60 ml/4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 x packet of egg noodles
  • 1 x packet of stir fry vegetables

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas mark Gas mark 5, 190°C, 375°F.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the teriyaki and sweet chilli sauce and set aside. 
  3. Place the joint on a chopping board, season all over and brush with the oil. Transfer to a roasting rack in a roasting tin or oven dish and cook for 30-35 minutes. Lightly cover with foil if browning too quickly. I check it after 15 minutes and usually apply foil then.
  4. During the last 10-15 minutes of the cooking time brush the beef with the teriyaki mixture. Return to the oven and cook uncovered for the remainder of the cooking time.
  5. Transfer the beef to a warm plate, cover and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Boil your noodles and fry your stir fry veg.
  7. Slice the beef, top over the noodles and vegetables. Garnish with coriander leaves and cover in the sauce from the oven dish.

    This looks lovely! I really like teriyaki & wouldn’t have considered doing it instead of a traditional roast. #brilliantblogposts

  2. Mel

    Oh my… that looks so good, hun! That’s exactly the kind of meal Hubby would order if we were going out for dinner 🙂

  3. ablondeandababy

    This looks so yummy! And although I’m not the worlds most natural cook I think I can do this! We’ve been getting a bit bored of the same old repetitive dinners so I’m going to give this a try! #brilliantblogposts

  4. Meg

    Oh yum, this looks so good. I could eat that right now (even though it’s breakfast time!) have bookmarked this for future meal planning! #brillblogposts

  5. Five little doves

    This looks delicious!! We love a roast but a roast with a twist sounds fab. I always worry about over cooking beef but this looks delicious. Maybe I will give it a try! #BrilliantBlogPost

    A mini mid-week roast – very cheeky! Love it! You are so right – it doesn’t have to be a huge deal. This actually combines two of my families favourites – thank you for sharing 🙂 Alison x #brilliantblogposts

  7. the frenchie mummy

    Is there any type of cuisine you are not good at? Because it looks delicious as always! Come and dine at mine one day, please! And do the cooking beforehand lol #brillblogposts

    That looks sooooooo good, and your pictures are stunning. I’ve actually been known to cook a cheeky roast in the week, but I’ve never tried it with an asian twist like this and I do love a good stir fry. I’d love to give this a try so will be popping back to grab your recipe at some point 🙂 Fab video too, I’ve come across the Red Tractor logo before but never properly appreciated what it meant so its really good to know. Will be looking out for their symbols when we do our food shops now! Emily

      Thanks lovely, the Red Tractor logo makes the meat traceable from farm to us and is the mark to look out for to signify quality meat. So glad you liked the video x
