Hibachi-Style Fried Rice Recipe

Who doesn’t love Hibachi? I know I do, especially the Hibachi fried rice. I’ve been cooking fried rice since I was 10 years old. It was my “specialty.” No idea how it came to be or why I was so obsessed with it.

Hibachi-style fried rice or Japanese fried rice is a lot simpler than you may think. A very wise man once told me (Japanese steak house Hibachi chef) that all you need is soy sauce and butter. He called it “peanut butter” because mixed together, it looks just like creamy peanut butter. The trick is room temp butter mashed together with soy sauce for a creamy, thick paste.

I make my fried rice just like the pros. I wish I could say I have a Hibachi grill in my living room but I don’t. However, a wok is the next best thing (I highly recommend you pick one up). A wok can be used for a lot of Asian cuisines.

What is Hibachi?

Sure, we have all been to Hibachi restaurants where talented chefs serve up Japanese cuisine with a show. Hibachi actually directly translates to “fire bowl,” meaning cooking on a very hot metal surface. That’s why this recipe is ideal for a wok on high heat, It will quickly cook and sear the rice just like a Hibachi surface (well, almost).

You can even add in chicken for the perfect Hibachi-style chicken fried rice. Just be sure to cook the chicken before adding the rice.

For this recipe, I use canola oil, butter, less sodium soy sauce, white onion, peas, carrots, and one fried egg. It’s lighter, lower in sodium, and healthier than your typical takeout. If you have leftover white rice in the fridge this is the perfect way to get rid of it for a killer side dish. Throw everything in a wok and cook on high heat for 5-7 minutes. It’s that easy.

A Quick Note On Prep

When cooking quickly at high temps, it’s super important to be organized before putting anything on the heat. For fried rice, I lay out all my ingredients ahead of time in small prep bowls. It makes the process much easier and prevents burning from getting distracted.

  • Orange sesame cauliflower
  • Hibachi chicken
