Quick & Easy Teriyaki Steak Recipe

Do you love steak? Well, then you’re going to love this teriyaki steak and rice recipe! This teriyaki steak recipe is easy to make and it tastes amazing. Plus, it’s perfect for a weeknight meal and can be made in under 30 minutes. 

When you’re in a hurry or short on time sometimes the best options are to “Cheat” your way to a quick and easy meal. We don’t always have time to create a sauce from scratch and that’s ok.

Steak

sirloin steak

I am using sirloin steak in this recipe for a couple of reasons. First, it has great flavor and is a leaner cut of steak. It also is a cheaper cut of meat which is fine for recipes like this and it makes the overall meal cheaper which helps the wallet out as well. You can use any kind of steak you prefer of course but I don’t think anyone is expecting you to slice up a rib eye or new york steak for a rice bowl.

Teriyaki Sauce

This teriyaki steak recipe is all about teriyaki sauce. You will need to have a good teriyaki sauce that you enjoy for your teriyaki steak recipe. I like to use a store-bought teriyaki sauce for this recipe because it saves time and is easier than making one from scratch. The key here is to find one that you enjoy and not just use the first teriyaki sauce you come across. If you prefer to make your sauce that’s great and I will have a quick recipe for teriyaki sauce below but for this recipe we are going simple.

Rice

rice

The teriyaki steak is served over rice and you can use whatever kind of rice you prefer. I like to use jasmine or basmati for this recipe but any kind of long-grain white rice will work just fine. Just make sure to follow the package instructions for cooking time and liquid ratio. If you want fewer calories in your meal cauliflower rice is a great option.
