How to Make Hibachi-Restaurant Style Rice at Home (I Cracked the Code)!


Love that rice you get at hibachi restaurants? Now you can make it at home!

You’ll need:

4 cups cooked brown or white rice

4 ounces butter, softened
1 onion large, diced
1 large carrot, peeled and rough chopped
2 cloves whole garlic, mashed
2 cloves garlic, whole
4 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 -1 teaspoon onion powder
toasted sesame seeds
4 scallions, cut in 1/4- to1/2-inch diagonal cuts
freshly ground pepper
1/8 – 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
Here’s how you make it:

Combine the 2 cloves of mashed garlic and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt to the softened butter. Set aside.
In a food processor, pulse the carrot, onion and whole garlic to just under split pea size. Set aside.
Place the butter into a large skillet or wok. Add the carrot, garlic and onion mixture.Sauté until onions are translucent and carrots begin to brown and caramelize.
Beat eggs in a bowl. Season with the remaining garlic salt, onion powder, salt and white pepper. Set aside.
Add the cooked white or brown rice to the pan. Sauté to combine the carrot-onion mixture and until rice releases steam and begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
Add the eggs and cook through. Toss to combine everything.
Add soy sauce, to taste. Add scallions and toss about 2 minutes. Add toasted sesame seeds. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, if needed.
If desired, you could add some shredded cooked chicken. Enjoy!
