Homemade teriyaki rice bowls

On Mothers Day this year we smoked a bunch of pork and had shredded pork for dinner. It was one of the yummiest dinners I have had in a long time. The only downside is that it made A LOT of meat. We have so much leftover.

I turned to the good ol FB asking of different ways to use the leftover meat because it was way too good to let go to waste. So many ideas were thrown out, and so far these Teriyaki Rice Bowl were the yummiest dinner we’ve had with it.

The recipe is really simple, and although we had it with our smoked shredded pork, you can substitute it with any other meat. It would be great with chicken, brisket, turkey or even some shredded beef. The possibilities are seriously endless.

The same thing goes for the vegetables. There are the “typical” vegetables that you see in a rice bowl, but the truth is you can go with whatever you have on hand. We had the typical ones on hand; broccoli, carrots and zucchini.

I sliced the zucchini into thin slices, grated the carrots and then made sure the broccoli florets were small and bite sized. I then steamed the vegetables until they started to get soft. Leave a little crunch, don’t make the veggies too soft. The crunch gives a little something extra to the combination of the bowl.
