A Teriyaki Japanese Rice Bowl sounds so delicious right about now, doesn’t it? I mean teriyaki glaze and white rice is one of the best flavor combinations ever, so why not make it on purpose in this Japanese rice bowl?

Japanese Rice Bowl

Do you ever order teriyaki chicken take-out from our local restaurant and they pour that glaze right over the rice and you’re left wondering if you should scrape some off of the chicken so that you can enjoy more glaze on rice? This Asian rice bowl is going to give you exactly that but without the need to skimp on the sauce!

Japanese Rice bowl recipes can vary depending on the chef, but with you leading the charge, you can adapt it to your tastebuds and make it exactly how you want it to be. A delicious and flavorful teriyaki rice bowl that meets all of your craving needs, how awesome is that?

Teriyaki Rice Bowl

While this bowl could make an amazing dish on its own, finding great food to pair with it can feel like a daunting task. How can you find a food that pairs well without overpowering this teriyaki bowl or that distracts from the sweet deliciousness? I highly recommend my teriyaki chicken or even my Easy 30 Minute teriyaki beef as they could match the flavors nicely while still bringing a few new elements to the plate!

What can I add to this teriyaki bowl?

Adding in stir fry veggies or teriyaki glazed meats like my teriyaki beef would be an amazing dinner idea. You can even layer them all in your bowl with the rice and sauce to create “a real” teriyaki bowl! Enjoy!

What can I do to thicken my sauce?

If you cornstarch slurry wasn’t enough to thicken your sauce, and you haven’t added it to the rice yet, you can turn your pressure cooker on to saute mode and heat the sauce for 2 to 3 minutes while stirring continually to help thicken the sauce

Can I make this teriyaki bowl vegan?

Yes, you can! Simply make sure that the ingredients that you use are certified as vegan and substitute the honey for Agave or another one of your favorite vegan-friendly alternatives!

Do I have to use white rice?

You do not have to use white rice however other grains of rice will require different rice to water ratios and may result in needing a longer cooking time. 

How do I store leftovers and reheat them?

Store any uneaten rice in your fridge, within an airtight container for up to 4 days for the best results. Reheating can be a little tricky as rice may dry out as it warms up. A good way to avoid this is to heat it up in a pot on the stove, with a lid to trap in the moisture. Add in a few tablespoons of water or butter to help give it a little more liquid for absorbing and enjoy.

The thing I love about a Japanese Rice Bowl is the simplicity of making it all in one pot. No need to dirty the kitchen, this Rice Bowl Recipe is made in your Pressure Cooker all in one.

Is and Instant Pot and MultiPot a Pressure Cooker?

An Instant Pot is a Pressure Cooker. A MultiPot is a Pressure Cooker. A Ninja is a Pressure Cooker. They all have similar features, just different brands. This recipe calls for a Pressure Cooker and does not matter the brand. I personally own 2 competing brands and love them both!

Instant Pot How To

Can I use the Rice Button on my Pressure Cooker?

Many Pressure Cookers have preset buttons like a Rice Button. I prefer to use a Manual / Pressure Cook setting so I can control the time.

What is the Rice to Water Ratio in the Pressure Cooker?

This is personal preference. However, I prefer to use 1 1/4 water to 1 Cup Rice. And as always rinse your rise to remove extra starch

What is a Quick Release on the Instant Pot?

A Quick Release or QR is how you treat the pressure in the Pressure Cooker after the cook time has finished. A Quick Release will open the pressure valve and release the steam quickly.

Hawaiian Macaroni Salad

A Rice Bowl is just the beginning of this Japanese Style meal, make sure to add your favorite Mac Salad recipe too, the mild tangy sauce on this Macaroni Salad balances out the strong Teriyaki Flavors from the rest of the meal. And it’s my Favorite!

As always, add a pair of chop sticks and dive in. Chop Sticks just make a Rice Bowl even better!
