The Flame Broiler is a beloved chain across Orange County that sells bowls—yes, bowls. Big bowls with more rice than meat—but the meat is cooked to dark jewels of carnivorous temptation. But it's in this fiendishly simple recipe that Flame Broiler has found success, especially with Latino families that have made it such a success because the teriyaki beef is suspiciously similar to finely cut carne asada. Chicken bowls are also fine, with thick chunks of the bird, while the pork is great as well. Vegetarians can even rejoice in the veggies option, chockablock with sauteed broccoli, carrots, ad cauliflower that soak up all the teriyaki sauce. The rice isn't bad either for all the bowls: cooked just under crispy, which allows all the juices of the meats and veggies to get soaked in each grain, leading to a plump masterpiece.
