Start by prepping your ingredients.
Have your cooked rice ready.
Cut the broccoli into smaller pieces and slice onion and set aside.
Heat up a large skillet, then add in your oil, allowing it to get hot. (if it smokes, it's too hot)
Once oil is hot, add in onions to sauté.
Once onions are halfway cooked (nearly see through) add in the broccoli.
Sauté the broccoli with the onions. For beginners I recommend taking out the onions first so you don't accidentally burn them while cooking the broccoli. ;)
The broccoli will take about 5-7 minutes to sauté, make sure your moving it around plenty, too much and it won't get that crispness that makes it so yummy.
How do you know when the broccoli is done?
When it sweats. Once you see the broccoli sweating, add in the Teriyaki sauce, stir and pour on plate.
Want to add other veggies? If they are frozen, sauté separately, as they create a lot of water that tends to make it soggy.
Adding in chicken? Also recommended to saute alone for crispness.
Taste your yummy creation!
