My first experience with cooking with soy curls was with my BBQ Crunch Wrap with Soy Curls recipe. My family loved that so much and asked me to make more. I wanted to make a recipe using soy curls over rice rather than a wrap. The recipe for Hawaiian BBQ Soy Curls is perfect with its mix of sweet and tangy flavors.

What are soy curls and how do you cook them?

Soy curls are made only by Butler Foods. You can go to their website and find out a little more about soy curls and how they are made. They do not share the exact process they use though as this is proprietary information. They do assure us though that soy curls are made from the whole bean and are minimally processed.

You will need to rehydrate the soy curls before cooking with them. Typically this means soaking in water for up to 20 minutes. In this recipe, I just throw them in the slow cooker along with the liquid from the canned pineapple, barbeque sauce, and teriyaki sauce; and they rehydrate while they are cooking.

What you will need to prepare this recipe for Hawaiian BBQ Soy Curls:

  • soy curls (affiliate link)
  • BBQ Sauce of choice (Try my Healthy Homemade BBQ Sauce for a truly whole foods plant-based meal or my Bourbon BBQ Sauce with Fresh Figs for a sauce with a kick!)
  • canned pineapple and the juice from the can (Get the pineapple in juice, not in a sugar/syrup.)
  • teriyaki sauce (The thin sauce like soy sauce – not the kind that is a thick syrupy sauce.)
  • onion
  • red pepper
  • a slow cooker like a Crockpot

Tips and Tricks for Making the Best Hawaiian BBQ Soy Curls:

  • Read through all of these tips and tricks to ensure that your recipe turns out as fabulous as mine did!
  • Use an 8-ounce bag of soy curls. There is no need to rehydrate for this recipe. Just throw them in a slow cooker. I get mine on Amazon.com by the 3-pack (affiliate link).
  • Pour in the pineapple including juice from the can, BBQ sauce, teriyaki sauce, and vegetable broth.
  • Top with sliced onions and bell pepper. I used red bell pepper in this recipe, but you could use whichever color pepper you prefer.
  • Give it a little stir and cook on low for 6 hours. Hawaiian bbq soy curls over rice in slow cooker

Finishing Up!

  • Spoon on top of your favorite rice. I’m about the ease of preparation so I use prepared rice I buy at the grocery store. Any one of these will do. Or cook the rice yourself!

Use your favorite ready-made rice.
  • This recipe calls for 4 cups of rice which is 1/2 cup per serving. Use more or less depending on your personal preferences.
  • You can serve over a baked potato instead of rice too.

This recipe is great for meal prep. It makes 8 servings and can be kept in the refrigerator for up to five days. If it gets a little dried out, I just top with a little BBQ sauce.

  1. This recipe has become a family fave!! Even for a super picky 16-year-old! We love soy curls and wanted to branch out a little on our recipes. I put this in the one pot, set on steam setting, and in 30 minutes, done! Thanks so much for this recipe!

    • Oh my goodness this warms my heart so much to hear this! Question for you – by “one pot” do you mean a pressure cooker? I’m not familiar with that. I definitely want to try that though!

  2. Just a quick question before I make this. Your measurement for barbecue sauce is in ounces and the other liquids are in cups. Is this because people generally purchase bottles of barbecue sauce? If I am going to use your recipe for healthy homemade bbq sauce, how much would I use? Is one recipe enough or would I have to double it?
    Thank you

    • Hi – I hope you got the email I sent you. It is measured in fluid ounces so basically 2 1/2 cups. However, its a pretty forgiving recipe, so if your BBQ sauce bottle contains 18 ounces then that will work too. 24 ounces might be too much though. For homemade sauce, use 2 1/2 cups.

  3. 5 stars
    Made this recipe for my husband & I! Served atop jasmine rice, with a side of steamed broccoli and topped with chopped green onions. Soooo delicious!
