Teriyaki Rice Bowl – {Rumbi Island Grill copycat recipe}

Two teriyaki rice bowls with sauce sitting on a marble surface

Rumbi Island Grill was one of my favorite places to go in college. They made this amazing teriyaki rice bowl that I loved to get. Half steak, half grilled chicken, lots of fresh veggies, ride and beans. They had a teriyaki sauce that knocked it all out of the park. We don’t lived by any of these restaurants anymore, so we often recreate this amazing teriyaki rice bowl at home.

How to Make Teriyaki Rice Bowls

I start by preparing my rice- it takes the longest to cook.After you have started your rice, in a separate sauce pan you’ll start making your teriyaki sauce. Add all the ingredients and let your sauce simmer right along side your white.  While that is cooking I’ll grill up some protein, typically chicken or a nice steak. While the meat is resting, rice & sauce is simmering chop up your veggies. They will only take a few minutes to steam so cook them very last. I wait until everything else is done. You want your veggies  to be a little bit tender and a little bit firm- definitely not soggy or too soft.

Drizzle as much or as little teriyaki sauce over your entire bowl of veggies :) we typically like a LOT! This meal has maybe a few extra steps than your usual, but it really does not take a lot of time. If I’m organized this meal can be done in about 30-40 minutes. You can also choose to cook a variety of different veggies- whatever your family loves!
