Below, we have provided a detailed recipe with step-by-step instructions to make this culinary delight at home.


1 lb. beef steak
1 cup sushi rice
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
6 sheets nori seaweed
1 tsp. sesame seeds
Salt & pepper, to taste

Teriyaki sauce:
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Mirin
2 tbsp. Sake
1 tbsp. sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 inch ginger, grated


1. Rinse the sushi rice thoroughly and rinse under cold water until the water runs clear. Add the rice to a pot with 1 1/2 cups of water, and cook on high heat. Once the rice has come to a boil, turn the heat down to low and cover the pot. Cook for 15 minutes until the water has been absorbed.

2. While the rice is cooking, prepare the teriyaki sauce. In a small pot over medium heat, combine soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Stir well and bring to a boil. Take the pot off the heat, and allow the sauce to cool for a few minutes.

3. Slice the beef steak into thin strips, and season with salt and pepper. Heat the vegetable oil over high heat in a skillet, and stir-fry the beef until it is browned. Drain off any excess oil, and pour in the teriyaki sauce. Cook until the sauce has coated the beef evenly.

4. In a separate pot, mix rice vinegar and sugar, and heat over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Once the rice has finished cooking, remove it from the heat, and stir in the vinegar mixture and sesame seeds. Mix well and let the rice cool.

5. Place a nori sheet on a bamboo sushi mat with the shiny side down. Wet your fingers in water and spread the cooled rice over the nori sheet, leaving a 1/2 inch gap at the top edge.

6. Place the beef strips on the rice and sprinkle the thinly sliced scallions over the beef. Roll the mat tightly over the nori sheet, pressing gently with your hands as you roll. Once the roll is complete, allow it to rest for a few minutes, seam-side down.

7. Using a sharp knife, slice the rolls into 1-inch thick rounds and serve with soy sauce for dipping.

These Beef Teriyaki Rolls are a perfect dish for a quick and simple weeknight dinner, or a delightful appetizer for a dinner party. The combination of sweet and savory teriyaki sauce with juicy sliced beef and sushi rice is sure to leave you wanting more. Additionally, the recipe is incredibly versatile, and you can customize it by adding your favorite vegetables or sauces to the mix.
