Turkey Teriyaki Rice Bowls

2

My coworker brought this for lunch one day and it was delicious. I am not much of a pork eater (I don’t come from pork country), but I really enjoyed it. We ended up reheating it in the slow cooker for a few hours and it was excellent.

This would make a great pot luck recipe if you need one. First on the stove top then to the slow cooker. I think if you brown the meat you could do the remaining steps in the slow cooker also.

Ingredients: 

Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar or less as desired
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar or less as desired
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • Ground Turkey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound Ground Turkey
  • 1 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 2 large carrots peeled and grated
  • 2 green onions diced, for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Mix soy sauce, 1/4 cup water, red wine vinegar, sugars, garlic and ginger in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir with a whisk until sugar is dissolved.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons warm water and cornstarch until cornstarch is completely dissolved.
  3. Heat sauce over medium high heat. Slowly whisk in cornstarch mixture and simmer until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add diced onions and cook until soft.
  5. Crumble ground turkey and garlic into the pan and cook until turkey is about half cooked. Add grated carrots and chopped carrots and continue to cook until turkey is no longer pink.
  6. Pour teriyaki sauce over cooked turkey and vegetable mixture and stir. Simmer for about five minutes to combine the flavors.

Spoon meat over rice or noodles. Garnish with green onions and serve immediately.
