Recipe for :

Teriyaki Rice

This is one of the recipes from Mrs Susie. If you want to find out more about her have a look at her biography page which she has written. Mrs Susie specialises in Oriental cooking. An important first step in Oriental cooking (which I think is important) is at the end of each recipe.

To find out the basic requirements for making Teriyaki have a look at Japanese Teriyaki under Tips,etc.

"The word, teriyaki is a combination of two Japanese words "teri" and "yaki." Teri means luster and yaki means grill or broil".


1 cup long grain rice
2 cups water or beef broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 green onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoonbrown sugar

Watercress or parsley for garnish (optional)

Green onion slices (optional)


  • Heat water or broth to a boil. Add salt and rice.
  • Bring to a boil again. Cover pan with lid.
  • Simmer for about 20 minutes or until rice is almost cooked.
  • Add onions, garlic, teriyaki sauce and brown sugar. Stir to combine.
  • Reheat for a few minutes until green onions are soft but not mushy.
  • Serve rice on a bed of watercress or parsley.
  • Garnish with sliced green onions, if desired.

Serves 4

Mrs Susie

"I have studied oriental cooking quite a bit and the one thing that makes it different from other styles of cooking is: it is 90% preparation and 10% cooking. It is very important to have everything in the recipe already prepared for cooking before you start cooking.

I take a plate and cut up my ingredients as called for in the recipe and place them on different parts of the plate. Only then do I think about cooking. I will put my oil in the pan and, as the things are called for in the recipe, I will sweep them into whatever pan I am cooking with, cook for as long as called for, then add the next ingredient.

Oriental cooking happens so fast. To stop and cut up the garlic (for example) if I had the ginger cooking in the pan would result in burnt ginger before the garlic is finished.

When I am cooking a ten or fifteen course dinner you should see my kitchen. I have plates all over and all my sauces mixed in bowls and everything is ready to cook before I start cooking. This is the right way to do it and necessary to have a well-timed dinner.

Another thing, get yourself a good cleaver that will not rust. You will be surprised how much you will use this for all your cooking, not just oriental cooking. Do yourself a favor and get a good one. I think I paid $20 for mine but again that was 20 years ago".
