​How to Make Hibachi-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:

  1. Combine the 2 cloves of mashed garlic and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt to the softened butter. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the carrot, onion and whole garlic to just under split pea size. Set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. Beat eggs in a bowl. Season with the remaining garlic salt, onion powder, salt and white pepper. Set aside.
  5. 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.
  6. Add the eggs and cook through. Toss to combine everything.
  7. 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!
