Teriyaki Ground Bison and Rice

You’re one Costco haul away from having the three ingredients you need to make this ground bison and rice combo. All you need is ground bison, a frozen cauliflower rice stir fry, and teriyaki sauce. While you can pick up all three from Costco (Great Range, Tattooed Chef, and Kinder’s), all three are fairly common finds in most grocery stores.

Not a fan of cauliflower rice? No worries! This recipe works perfectly with any type of rice.

I’ve also included a simple 5-ingredient yum yum sauce you can make with pantry and condiment staples like mayo, sriracha or chili garlic sauce, rice vinegar, honey, and garlic powder. Add a pinch of toasted sesame seeds and sliced scallions, and you’ll be ready to rock in 30 minutes or less.

Not to mention, you’ll only have one pan to clean!

If you’re worried about buying in bulk for one meal, you can use these same ingredients in recipes like my ground beef fried rice and teriyaki ground beef and broccoli.

Let’s get cooking. You can print or save the recipe card below and get after it.

I’d love to know your thoughts about the recipe if you try it. Let me know in a recipe review or comment below!

Teriyaki Ground Bison and Rice

Yield: 5 Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

One pan fried cauliflower rice stir fry with teriyaki lean ground bison and a simple spin on yum yum sauce.


  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons Olive Oil, divided
  • 1 1/4 pound Ground Bison*
  • 1 cup (272g) Teriyaki Sauce*
  • 2 12-oz bags Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry*

Optional Yum Yum Sauce

  • 1/4 cup (60g) Mayo
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon (23g) Sriracha
  • 1 Tablespoon (21g) Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon (15g) Rice Vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. Once hot, add the ground bison. Brown one side for 3-4 minutes before flipping and browning the other side for another 2-3 minutes. Once both sides have developed a nice crust, break the bison apart and fully cook.
  2. Add the teriyaki sauce to the cooked bison. Stir together and cook for 1-2 minutes until the sauce has thickened and a spatula leaves a trail when dragged across the pan. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. To the same skillet, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the cauliflower rice. Stir everything together and cook for 6-8 minutes until the rice is cooked to your liking.
  4. Turn off the heat and add the bison back to the skillet. Garnish with the yum yum sauce, toasted sesame seeds, and thinly sliced scallions.


*I used Great Range 90/10 ground bison, Tattooed Chef's rice cauliflower stir fry, and Kinder's teriyaki sauce from Costco. I also like Kevin's for a lower sugar option. This recipe would also work great with homemade sauce options like my firecracker and black pepper beef.

If you have picky eaters, you can mask some of the cauliflower-ness by using one bag of riced cauliflower and 2-3 cups of cooked and chilled jasmine or basmati rice.

You can also use leftover rice on its own and omit the cauliflower rice entirely.

Nutrition Facts Notes

Serving sizes and nutrition info are for the rice and bison without yum yum sauce.

Using 96/4 ground beef takes each serving to 340 calories, 25g protein, 25g carbs, and 14g fat.

You can further reduce the fat by serving the teriyaki ground bison with steamed rice instead of fried rice or using my low fat yum yum sauce.

Great flavor and super easy for a quick weeknight dinner. I thought that a cup of teriyaki seemed to overpower the meat. The second time I made it, I only used 1/2 cup and it was much better for us. Definitely a keeper!
