Create your own Hibachi at home for date night!!
Our favorite Hibachi place by far is Kobe's in Central Florida. If you do not live in Central Florida, but have a Kobe's near you and think it's the same, trust... it's not!!! Since we have to travel literally across country, we sometimes do Hibachi night ourselves. Complete with the homemade yum yum sauce.
What you need:
This below is one that you can place directly onto your stove. One side is a flat griddle and the other side is a grill. Click on the photo below to get yours!
2nd choice would be an electric griddle:
Recipe for Hibachi Noodles, veggies and meat
Protein (steak, chicken, shrimp, etc)
1/2 cup Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
4 TB. Butter
1 TB. Sesame Oil
Minced Garlic (fresh)
Fettucini noodles (we use gluten free)
Cook noodles separately
1. Coat griddle with sesame oil
2. Add TB of butter and minced garlic - sautee
3. First cook vegetables. (we cut into long pieces)
4. Season vegetables with garlic powder and garlic salt
5. Add TB of aminos and teriyaki
6. Remove veggies from grill
7. Add another TB of butter
8. Cook steak on both sides on top of melted butter, finish with some Liquid aminos and gyoza sauce. While steak is still cooking, chop it up into cube size pieces (middle will still be very raw) - allow your steak to cook to your preferred doneness while chopped into cubes.
9. Remove steak.
10. Add another TB of butter
11. poultry or seafood - copy above process
12. lastly, fry cooked noodles on top of all of that goodness the griddle has left over
Recipe for Yum Yum Sauce
1-1/4 cup Hellmann's/Best Food's mayonnaise (do not buy an off brand!)
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon paprika
dash cayenne pepper
Using fork or a whisk, blend all ingredients together thoroughly until well mixed and the sauce is smooth. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to blend. Bring to room temperature before serving.
The sauce will NOT taste right if you don't let it sit overnight. And please don't try to substitute ketchup for the tomato paste! The water is needed to bring this to the right consistency.
Keeps for 7-10 days; however, it will be gone instantly!
* Hellmann's is called "Best Foods" west of the Rockie Mountains. Use other mayos at your peril - many cheap brands make the sauce taste too much like mayo.
