Teppanyaki Style Recipes for Meat & Vegetables with Fried Rice Culture & Cuisine

When I first put together this recipe, I was craving something grilled, but I wanted to prepare it a bit different than usual. So I thought of Benihana, a teppanyaki-style restaurant we have out where we live. M loves eating out at Benihana, but I’d never thought to make it at home before because it seemed like a lot of work especially because M and I both prefer different meats.

I’m not sure what inspired me to do it, but that night, I suddenly had the desire to put together a full out spread. Hey, as long as the food doesn’t go to waste, why not?

The nice thing about cooking this style is that once you create the hibachi cooking oil, you’re pretty much set. There aren’t a variety of sauces that you need to create for the preparation stage of this recipe (there are, however, quite a few sauces you can put together for dipping the food once it’s ready).

We decided to prepare steak, chicken, shrimp, vegetables and fried rice. Yes, it’s a ton of food for just two people, but we both had lunch for several days after and it made all the slicing and dicing worth it.

Hibachi Cooking Oil
  1. 2 tbsp Sesame oil
  2. 1/3 c Olive oil
  3. 1 c Rice wine
  4. 1/4 c soy sauce (we used a dark mushroom flavored soy sauce)
  5. 1-2 tbsp chili paste (optional)
  6. (if you opt to prepare as much as I did, double the above)

  1. 2 Zucchini, julienne cut
  2. 1 Large onion, julienne cut
  3. 2 c Mushrooms, sliced
  4. 1/2 c Hibachi Cooking Oil
  5. 1 tbsp Garlic butter

  2. 1/2 c Hibachi Cooking Oil
  3. 1/2 Lemon, juice
  4. 1 tbsp Garlic butter
  5. Salt and pepper, to taste
  6. Sesame seeds, to taste
Fried Rice
  1. Pour water and a splash of cooking oil into a pot and bring to a boil. Add in the rice and cook for amount of time indicated on rice packaging (we used basmati rice and it takes about 20 min to cook).
  2. While rice is cooking, chop carrots into small pieces and dice the onion. In a large wok or pan, melt butter then add in onion and carrot. Once onion takes on translucent appearance, push the vegetables over to one side and add the three eggs into the empty side of the pan. Take pan off burner and set aside if rice is not ready.
  3. Once the rice is ready, place the pan back on the burner and add in rice, mixing well. Add in green onion to taste preference. Add in enough soy sauce to coat the rice and continue mixing. Once rice and vegetables are well coated, transfer the rice to a serving bowl and set aside.
Hibachi Cooking Oil
  1. Mix all of the above ingredients well in a bowl.
Hibachi-Style Vegetables
  1. In a large pan, melt the garlic butter. Add in vegetables with about 1/2 cup of hibachi cooking oil. Cook for about 10 min or until vegetables are tender. Transfer to serving bowl and set aside.
Hibachi-Style Steak, Chicken, or Shrimp
  1. If preparing chicken or steak, sprinkle salt and pepper over both sides of the meat to marinate it. Set aside.
  2. Melt the garlic butter in a pan then add in meat. If cooking the chicken or shrimp, cook thoroughly. If cooking the steak, you can sear both sides or cook more thoroughly to taste preferences.
  3. Once meat is cooked, squeeze lemon over it before removing it from pan and letting it cool slightly before slicing it (the shrimp does not need to be sliced). Transfer to a serving bowl or plate. Sprinkle sesame seeds over meat to taste.
  4. Serve.

NOTES

I know that teppanyaki and hibachi refer to the way in which the foods are cooked (on an flat top grill or pot over charcoal) which are not how I prepared these dishes. This is why I appended -style wherever I used hibachi or teppanyaki. While the dishes weren’t prepared exactly how they might be traditionally, the end result was quite comparable and the closest I could accomplish with the tools I had on hand.
