Beef teriyaki bowls bring the flavor of take-out home! You’ll love this quick and easy stir-fry dish.
It’s now time for that post-holiday meltdown, right? The time when all the sudden we flip from overindulging to eating nothing but salads? Have you ever stopped to wonder why we all do this to ourselves repeatedly every single year?
I have to admit, it gets old. It’s like clockwork at the beginning of January; the gyms are so full it’s almost impossible to get that equipment that you want at peak hours, but then suddenly a month or two in it’s back to normal again.
This year, I got ahead of the game; I started training with a trainer and joined a new gym that is closer to my house. We live out further in the country, so the main issue with working out is that the gyms are not near our house, this one though I pass every single day.
It also has childcare too, so I’m eliminating the excuses. It just happened that I had my first personal training session on my birthday, which was also a few days before Christmas.
That means that all of the sudden making pounds of treats and cookies just looked so much less appealing to me. It’s sad, but true! I just thought if I make all of those, I’m just going to add to the over-indulging that I’m trying to avoid, so instead I cooked dinner. Yep, dinner… no dessert. That is unless you want to count a scoop of peanut butter as dessert. I guess power balls now may be a good dessert.
In the midst of this I whipped up these Beef Teriyaki Bowls; they were perfect to get that craving I had for some Asian food without the gluten. Now, I would suggest using a flank steak or a thin cut steak. I ended up using a bottom round steak, which does work well but it’s a bit drier than the flank steak at least in my experience.
Now, the main thing here is that I sauté the meat in the teriyaki sauce so that it soaks in, then I simply mix it with the stir fry vegetables and rice to create a delicious bowl. I almost always use a gluten-free soy sauce to provide additional flavor, but it’s not needed if you prefer to skip that too.
These Beef Teriyaki Bowls pair well with the spring rolls I featured a while back. I love the combination and it helps when you are gluten-free and really craving that Asian flavor.
Now, I’ll be eating on this while you enjoy your cookies!

I LOVE easy meals, and bowl meals have been a bit hit in our home lately. Not a big fan of the mini corns but my hubby LOVES them so he can have all of them from my bowl when I make this. And I WILL be making this. Thanks!

MMM I love beef teriyaki bowls. This looks so good plus the fact it’s easy to make is a total win. I also get what you mean – everyone kind of does the New Year’s thing. I’m a bit picky about what we eat around here and I try to balance things. Will definitely be making this one – my 11 year old stepdaughter will eat it, so yep. It goes on the menu LOL!

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I love the idea of this dish! I also love eating it when I go out, but I never have the guts to cook it myself – I lack skills in Asian cooking. I do have a wok, but don’t use it a lot. My husband loves these flavors as well, but the kids are hard to please – I am never sure, they will either gulp it all down, or refuse to eat it, so it is kind of random. Hopefully I will get to try out your recipe soon! Thanks again for sharing it!
Thanks for sharing your recipe. It looks absolutely delicious and it seems simple enough to make. I will have to make this one day for the boys as I am sure it is something that will like and actually want to eat.
I’m a big Teriyaki fan here. I could eat it several times a week. The baby corn and rice vinegar really add a lot of vinegar to it. Sometimes I like to sneak pineapple into it too. This recipe looks like it’s packed full of flavor.
These look SO good! I love teriyaki anything basically. So delicious! I have to try this out – I haven’t had something like this in a while but I’m always dying to try new things! This is definitely something to add to the weeks dinner menu haha!
