Chef’s Advice

Fried rice was invented to make use of old rice that had been left behind. Instead of using freshly cooked rice, create hibachi rice with rice that has been prepared ahead of time.

Use precooked rice from the grocery store to make fried hibachi rice that tastes even better than restaurant-quality.

If you don’t eat grains, cauliflower rice can easily replace the rice. It’s not required to lightly roast sesame seeds for the mustard sauce, but it will improve the flavor.

  • In a large skillet or wok, heat 2 tablespoons avocado oil on high. Sauté diced onion and frozen vegetables for 3 minutes, or until onions are almost translucent. Transfer the vegetables to the pan’s side. Scramble eggs in a pan with a spatula until fully scrambled and cooked through.
  • 4 cups cooked rice + 4 tbsp butter Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook for an additional minute after adding 4 tablespoons soy sauce. To keep fried rice warm, pack it tightly into bowls.

For the Vegetables and Hibachi Chicken (Made Simultaneously)

To prepare the chicken: In the same skillet or wok used for fried rice, heat 12 teaspoons sesame oil and 1 tablespoon avocado oil.

In a skillet, combine the chicken, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon butter, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink. To brown the chicken, merely stir once or twice.

To prepare the vegetables: Heat 12 teaspoons sesame oil and 1 tablespoon avocado oil in a separate big skillet or wok over medium-high heat for the veggies.

In a skillet, combine the chopped onion, baby Bella mushrooms, zucchini, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Sauté for 6-8 minutes, or until vegetables are soft.

Sauce with Mustard: If desired, lightly roast sesame seeds. (See the footnote.) Sesame seeds, dry mustard, 2 teaspoons of honey, 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, half & half, hot water, and minced garlic should all be blended together in a blender.

  • To make the greatest fried rice, don’t cook the rice right before preparing the fried rice. It’s better to use leftover or store-bought precooked rice.
  • Lightly toasting sesame seeds will enhance the flavor of the mustard sauce, although it is not required. Make the mustard sauce ahead of time and keep it refrigerated.
  • Replace rice with cauliflower rice to make it grain-free.
