⭐ Family Foodie Tips
Mix in a little extra homemade teriyaki sauce, garlic, ginger, pulled pork, and stir fry vegetables, and you will have the most delicious teriyaki fried rice!
If you’re frying your rice, I recommend using sesame oil to fry it in, or canola if you have it on hand.
👪 Serving Size
These ingredients should serve a family of four comfortably. If you’re serving more people, add 1 cup of rice per person and 1/2 a cup of pork per person. All toppings are according to preference, so adjust as you see fit!
🍜 How to Make a Rice Bowl
- Spoon rice into a bowl.
- Top with pulled pork.
- Add toppings as you prefer, such as avocado, corn, chopped red onions, jalapenos, green onions, and tomato. I generally use about half a tablespoon of each topping per person.
- Squeeze a bit of lime on top.
- Spoon on about teriyaki sauce, or more or less as you prefer. At this point, I like to stir it through the bowl so the Teriyaki flavor is mixed throughout.
- Add a dollop of sour cream or drizzle on sour cream if you prefer – I find it adds a delicious creaminess! To drizzle it on, add your sour cream to a plastic bag and cut the top off of one end to squeeze it through.
- Repeat for a total of four servings, and enjoy!

🍚 Make it a Rice Toppings Bar
My family can’t get enough of this pulled pork and rice bowl recipe! I love switching up the toppings or even creating a rice toppings bar for everyone to add their own toppings for rice. Set everything out and let the family pick and choose their favorites!
Some of my favorite toppings to add to a rice bowl recipe like this are beef or chicken, along with stir fry vegetables. If you make a beef rice bowl with carne picada, try serving it over cilantro lime rice.
Another one of my favorites is adding Portuguese Peri Peri Chicken to rice. It’s a little spicy, and even more delicious with extra homemade Peri Peri sauce to top it with. Flavor your rice with onions and garlic, and you have an easy, delicious dinner in a bowl!
5-Ingredient Easy Chicken Stir Fry makes a delicious topping for rice, too, and it’s just so easy to make!
