Rice gives you a lot of variety, and it’s incredibly budget-friendly too.

Keep it simple with salt and butter, or cook it in herbs and spices for something with a bit more pizzaz.

Either way, rice can take on bigger and bolder flavors than most grains and sides.

Be it bright taco spices, zesty Meditteran herbs, or fragrant Indian favorites, these steak and rice recipes are to die for.

Best Ever Steak Fried Rice and More!

1. Steak Fried Rice

Steak fried rice is simple, saucy, and oh-so-savory. It’s the perfect cubed steak recipe for someone who wants Asian food that’s not too complicated.

You’ll use half a pound of tender, flavorful steak. Then, you’ll jazz it up with plenty of mixed veggies, some garlic, and scallions. 

The combination of oyster and soy sauces is delicious. It adds a rich depth of flavor that enhances the whole dish. 

It’s incredibly filling, too, and takes just 20 minutes to make. (Minus marinating time, of course.)

If you want to keep it low-carb, substitute cauliflower rice instead. Yum!

2. Steak Fajita Bowls with Garlic Lime Rice

Are you in the mood for something with a bit of Tex-Mex flair? Give these steak fajita bowls a try. 

They’re everything you love about fajitas, minus the tortillas.

Of course, you can add some of those, too, if you like. But between the corn and rice, you’ll have plenty of carbs.

Everything about this meal is scrumptious. You don’t have to stick strictly to the recipe or the veggies in the picture, either.

Load your bowl with whatever you like. I suggest onions, black beans, guacamole, and pico to start.

Oh, and don’t forget the cheese. It’s not in the recipe, but you don’t want to leave it out.

3. Skillet Pepper Steak and Rice

This saucy skillet pepper steak doesn’t even need rice to be tasty. You could eat it straight from the pan and be more than satisfied. 

It’s truly that delicious, thanks mainly to the Cajun seasonings, soy sauce, and peppers. It’s a complete meal all by itself. 

That said, serving it over a bed of rice makes it even more satisfying. Plus, the fluffy texture of the rice pairs nicely with the chewy steak and peppers.

If you enjoy steak and the fresh taste of tomatoes, you’ll love this meal. And the best part? It takes just 45 minutes and a single pan to prepare.

4. Korean BBQ Steak Rice Bowls

Forget the steak and rice! The cucumber roses in these bowls are gorgeous. I love edible art, so fancy food is always a real hit with me.

That said, even without the lovely appearance, these bowls are phenomenal. So people will love them with or without the fancy extras.

Each bowl is Korean BBQ at its finest. And there are plenty of veggies thrown in, too.

It’s like a zesty, savory salad with a barbecue topping. (Trust me, it’s not as odd as it sounds.) 

If the presentation throws you off too much, serve the BBQ on the side. That way, you can think of it as Korean steak and salad.

Either way, I know you’ll love it. 

5. Japanese Steak Rice Bowl

This simple steak bowl combines steak, rice, and lettuce. Every other ingredient on the list goes into the marinade, which tastes unbelievably good. 

The steak is wonderfully tender and has the best flavor. It also gets a nice, crunchy crust around the edges if you cook it correctly. 

This dish isn’t as fancy or colorful as others on the list. Fortunately, no one will care about its simple presentation once they taste it – they’ll be too busy looking for seconds.

6. Sticky Beef, Broccoli, and Rice

Is beef and broccoli your favorite takeout meal? Then this recipe is the one for you.

The steak is flavorful and well-seasoned. Meanwhile, the rice is fluffy and delightfully sticky. 

Add broccoli and sesame seeds for crunch and a splash of color, and you’ve got a sweet-n-savory dish that’ll rival even your favorite takeout joint.

7. Mongolian Steak Edamame Rice Bowl

This colorful, flavor-rich bowl looks like something from P.F. Chang’s. It certainly tastes like it came out of a restaurant and is as healthy as it is yummy. 

Packed with steamed edamame, raw carrots, and sautéed bok choy, it’s fresh and full of crunch.

Not to mention the tasty brown rice and Mongolian barbecued beef! 

It’s an excellent choice if you’re in the mood for bold flavors. Trust me, there’s nothing mild or understated about this dish. 

Everything is intense, from its colorful appearance to its wallop of flavor. That’s what makes it so good.

8. Pepper Lunch Steak and Rice Sizzle

I like to call this a “Goldilocks” recipe because everything about it is just right

The steak is neither too thick nor too thin and features the perfect mix of sweet and savory flavors.

It’s salty, but not too salty. Saucy, but not too saucy. Garlicky, but not too garlicky…you get the idea. 

If you want a delicious, 30-minute lunch option, this pepper steak is it. Just don’t expect to have leftovers for dinner. 

9. Hibachi Steak With Fried Rice and Ginger Sauce

If you’re a fan of Hibachi, you’ll love this tasty dish. The steak and the rice are perfectly done, and their flavors are terrific. 

Don’t let the ginger sauce scare you away, either. It adds a rich warmth to the meal but isn’t overly spicy.

If you’ve ever had ginger beer, the ginger sauce is similar to that. So, it has all the warmth and spice of ginger but without the heat.

10. Chipotle Steak Rice Bowls

Of course, sometimes you are in the mood for something spicy. And that’s where these Chipotle steak rice bowls come in handy. 

Smoky, spicy, and spectacularly good, the tender, well-seasoned flank steak is so tasty you’ll want to eat it by itself.

Try to resist that urge if you can, though, because the rice and veggies really bring this whole dish to life.

It’s one super flavorful 30-minute meal you won’t want to share.
