Fantabulous Food! Teriyaki Pork and Rice

This is my own personal recipe I have developed over the years. I know it's not rocket science, but it has given me notoriety in my family and everyone is excited when I make it - which is always nice :)

Teriyaki Pork and Rice:

  • 2 lbs of lean pork chops
  • Teriyaki Sauce (about 1/2 cup or more to taste)
  • Soy Sauce (about 1/2 cup or more to taste)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp garlic salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
1. Cut any fat off your pork chops as well as you can - also remove the bone if they are still attached. Then slice the pork into bite sized cubes. Place in a bowl with a lid.
2. Pour 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 tbsp honey, garlic salt and pepper into bowl with pour. Stir well and press pork down so it is mostly submerged. Cover bowl and place in refrigerator to marinate for at least 30 minutes, preferably 1 hour or more. The longer it marinates, the more tender the pork will be.
3. While pork is marinating, prepare rice according to package instructions. Set aside and keep covered until pork is ready.
4. In a large skillet (preferably with sides), heat 1 tbsp olive oil on med-high. Add marinated pork to skillet and cook until pork is cooked through.
Believe me, the last thing you want to do is eat under cooked pork, so you are better safe than sorry. I like to pull out one of the larger pieces and slice it to make it is cooked completely.
5. Once pork is cooked, reduce heat to medium and add rice. Stir to combine.
6. Add the additional 1/4 cup or teriyaki sauce, 1/4 cup soy sauce, and 1 tbsp honey to the rice mixture. Taste the rice mixture to make sure it is to your liking. I like to add a little more garlic salt and pepper, but it is all a personal choice :)
Your pork and rice is ready to serve :) Sorry I didn't get a plated picture of the meal - we were too busy eating it all. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as we do.
