Review: Jack in the Box - Teriyaki Steak Bowl

Jack in the Box's Teriyaki Steak Bowl features sliced steak covered in teriyaki sauce and served with vegetables (broccoli and carrots) over a choice of white or brown rice.

The bowl costs $6.09 at the nearest Jack in the Box but I had a coupon good for a bowl, an egg roll, and a drink for $5 (normally $7.79).

I went with the brown rice. It was cooked through with a soft (but not too soft) texture. Unfortunately, it was somewhat waterlogged through a combination of moisture in the bowl and the teriyaki sauce.

The sauce supplied the strongest flavor in the bowl with a blend of salty and sweet over a base of soy sauce and a touch of ginger. It didn't quite hit the right notes for me, however, and tended to cover the taste of the other components.

The steak was fairly tender with a proper meaty texture (as opposed to an overly smooth chewiness). Additionally, it was cut into rather good-sized strips. The meat-to-rice ratio was nice as well.

The broccoli and carrots were tender but not mushy.

Overall, Jack in the Box's Teriyaki Steak Bowl turned out pretty well for a burger joint. The steak, rice, and vegetables were rather good but the sauce was a tad overpowering. I probably wouldn't get it again but I have a lot of similar options in my neck of the woods.
