These simple Spicy BBQ Pork Rice Bowls are the perfect thing to throw together for an easy lunch or dinner! They use a tender, marinated pork tenderloin, crisp stir-fried vegetables, and they get topped with an over-easy egg to finish the whole thing. Extra hot sauce is optional!
Spicy BBQ Pork Rice Bowl
If you have pork tenderloin you have the key to a quick, easy, and delicious dinner on your hands! Pork tenderloin is so versatile, cooks SO fast, and is always tender, juicy, and delicious. It is the “filet mignon” of the pork world, and really needs to be treated with a gentle hand for the best results.
In this recipe, we take our Spicy BBQ Pork Tenderloin, slice it up and serve it on top of a bed of steamed basmati rice along with a heap of stir fried asparagus, onions, and red bell peppers.
Top the whole thing with a fried egg, runny yolk required, and you’ve got a hearty, filling, delicious meal!

How to make a BBQ Pork Tenderloin Rice Bowl
Wondering how complicated this is to make? Read on! This is an overview of the process. When you’re cooking make sure to follow the recipe in the printable card at the bottom of the post.
Marinate the pork tenderloin
3-4 hours is about perfect for this. Don’t skimp! You could even go overnight if you are the kind of person who likes to read ahead.
You’ll want to grill it at 425-450° until the internal temperature reaches 140-145°. Use a wireless thermometer like the ThermoWorks Smoke, if you have one!
Cook your rice
You can use a rice cooker, Instant Pot, or even a pot on the stove. But you’ll want enough rice for 6 servings.
Rest and slice your meat
Don’t skimp on the rest time! That’s the best way to wind up with a dry piece of meat.
AVENGERS – assemble!
Or just put the rice bowl together. Whatever. Rice on the bottom, followed by vegetables, meat, and some extra spicy sauce if you like that sort of thing. The last step is to fry an egg up with that runny yolk to top it all off with.
Try some of my Pot Sticker Sauce on top of this if you are brave!

How do you store leftovers?
These are best eaten the day they are cooked, especially if we’re talking about an egg that’s already cooked. If you do find yourself with leftovers, you can store the rice, vegetables, and meat together in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days, max. I do not recommend freezing this.
What’s the best way to reheat leftovers?
Reheat leftovers in the microwave for best results.
