To make Teriyaki Sauce, I use Sugar, Soy Sauce and Mirin. I sometimes add extra ingredients for flavours, such as Garlic, Ginger, Chilli, etc. It’s a very simple sauce and you can easily alter the flavour to suit your taste and ingredients. You don’t need to buy a bottle of Teriyaki Sauce. Using thinly sliced Beef, this rice bowl can be cooked in less than 5 minutes. Pork OR Lamb can be used instead of Beef.


1 Serving


120g thinly sliced Beef *I sliced a piece of steak
Oil *I used Sesame Oil
1 serving warm Cooked Rice
Finely chopped Spring Onion
Toasted Sesame Seeds
Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Spice Mix) *optional

Teriyaki Sauce
1/2 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce *1 tablespoon is 15ml
1/2 tablespoon Mirin
1/2 tablespoon Sake (Rice Wine) OR Water
Chilli Flakes as required
1 small clove Garlic *grated
1/2 teaspoon grated Ginger *optional

  1. Combine all the Teriyaki Sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Heat a small amount of Oil in a frying pan over high heat, cook Beef until nicely browned, but I won’t take a long time at all.
  3. Add the sauce and cook for 1 minutes. When the sauce is thickened, it is done. Half fill a bowl with warm Cooked Rice and cover it with the Beef. Add some Spring Onion, Toasted Sesame Seeds and Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Spice Mix), and enjoy.
