Delicious Instant Pot Teriyaki Fried Rice Bowl

Today we’re sharing with you one more of our favorite Asian-inspired, way better-than-takeout meals: a sweet and savory Teriyaki Fried Brown Rice. Tell me you love fried rice as much as we do ?‍♀️Because my kids can eat this dish every day, well not literally, however you get the idea. We make Teriyaki fried rice mopre often as we love everything about it and our homemade Teriyaki sauce just makes things so easy.

We love Asain Cuisine almost as much as we love  Mexican or Indian. For me, it’s about how fast you can cook Asian food. ?‍♀️ No offense to our Mexican and Indian readers. A few sauces, seasoning, protein, veggies, quick stir fry and you are done! Most nights, after all the classes and driving the kids around for their activities, we just want dinner in 30 minutes. Since the first time I made our own homemade Teriyaki sauce, we ended up using it in fried rice, Teriyaki Brussel sprouts and even in Chow mein noodles! But just in case you don’t have the time to make your own sauce, use one from your favorite store bought.

A kid-friendly awesome Fake-out Take out recipe!

As a mom of two boys, I prefer to cook food at home as much as possible, however sometimes kids get cravings for something sweet or some specific dish from a specific restaurant. Yes we do go out once in two weeks to the kids favorite restaurants, however we cannot run to a restaurant everytime my kid wants to eat something specific. To top that off with different eating habits of both my kids. I can see myself going crazy here, and feel that making things at home with the things you can control is one of the most blessed things in the world. As with most international cuisines, the local Asian restaurants are localized to match the flavor and pallets of people trying out that cuisine. Most of the food in these restaurants is being pre-made and then served to the customer on a plate by putting everything together.  So making our favorites at home makes me feel better as a mom as I can ensure a healthy meal for your whole family. We control what goes into the bowl and we can have the kids eat veggies in different ways as possible, It’s full of veggies and if you prefer, you can add different veggies like broccoli even cabbage.

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce and how can we make it gluten-free and low-carb soy sauce recommendation

Why buy store bought when you can make it at home within minutes! It is homemade and absolutely delicious, plus I know every ingredient it is made with! In our option, the best low-carb and gluten-free substitute for traditional soy sauce is the coconut aminos. which tastes delicious and it’s made from the coconut sap. It looks like soy sauce because it’s dark and salty in flavor, but it’s soy-free, gluten-free and low-carb too. Another great gluten-free soy sauce is Tamari. It tastes very much like the traditional soy sauce, but it’s gluten-free. However, Tamari is not low-carb.

What kind of rice do we recommend for the Teriyaki Fried Rice?

For the base of my Teriyaki Fried Rice, brown rice is definitely my preferred type. It is 100% whole grain brown rice which makes it a nutritious option and it has a rich, nutty flavor
Not only does this meal is a winner with kids, but it also dishes out great nutrition. Carrots, peas, celery, and onions are loaded with fiber and diverse phytonutrients. Whole grain brown rice provides additional fiber and B-vitamins. cashews add protein and healthful fats. If you are not too big a fan of brown rice, you can use rice of your liking.

Having challenges while cooking Rice in Instant Pot?

Please check out our post that gives you a tried and tested process to make rice in Instant Pot. We have tried different types of rice and have provided you the best process for the same. You can check this out here

What rice is good for fried rice? Can we use a day old rice or Basmati Rice be used for fried rice?

Medium to long grain rice works the best.  You can use Jasmine rice which will produce fluffy, sturdy grains that won’t clump or fall apart when you are sauteing.  Shorter grain rice tends to be softer and sticks together. Totally Yes! It is also a very popular choice with  Indian cultures. If you are planning to use Jasmine Rice or Basmati Rice, please check the notes for the appropriate time and water ratio.

Lovely easy little rice pot. I recommend increasing the cook time to 22 min for regular brown calrose rice. Unless you are using basmati brown rice, then 18 min should work. I didn't have pre-made teriyaki sauce, just added a bit more soya sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and brown sugar. Also used whatever veggies I had on hand, which ended up being onion, carrots, celery. Broccoli and spinach i added after cooking and just them naturally steam with the lid on for 8 min. Thanks for the inspiration!
