How to Make Japanese Fried Rice – Easy Japanese
Hibachi Style Fried Rice Recipe Hello and welcome back to In the Kitchen with
Matt, I am your host Matt Taylor, today I will show you how to make Japanese Fried Rice,
this is a Hibachi style fried rice. I had a request to make a Japanese Hibachi
style fried rice, so here we go that is what we are going to do. It is really easy to do, simple ingredients,
if I can do it, you can do it. One thing to note, I don’t own a hibachi style
grill plate, like if you go to a restaurant like Benihana or any kind of Temppanyaki Japanese
restaurant, where the chef is right there in front of you, and people are sitting around
watching him cook, they have this large flat metal surface, which is essentially their
grill, and that is what they make the fried rice and all the other dishes on. I don’t have that, I am just going to use
a skillet, so you can feel free to use a skillet at home, or a wok, or whatever you might have,
all right, let’s get started. First we need our rice, what I did is I have
one cup of uncooked rice and I made the rice in my rice cooker, and then it makes about
2 cups cooked rice, there about, what I did is I laid it across this pan, flattened it
out, put some plastic wrap on it, and then I put this in the fridge, over night, the
reason why I do that, is because it dries it out, and it makes it so the individual
pieces of rice, come a part really nicely, and these clumps like this, if I didn’t do
that these would be nice and sticky, but now they come a part really easy. And it really helps with the frying process. So what I am going to do is I am going to
transfer this, to a bowl, and make sure that all my clumps are falling a part here. Fried rice is the perfect way to repurpose
your left over rice. All right let’s head over to the stovetop
and start cooking. Let’s go ahead take a nonstick skillet and
put it on our stovetop, you could use a wok, and I have the heat set to medium high, I
am letting my pan heat up, it is about there, now I am going to add, 3 Tablespoons of olive
oil, we will let that oil heat up a little bit. Let’s add one cup of peas and carrots, this
is one cup total so a half of cup of peas and a half cup of carrots, this is just a
bag, I just used a bag of frozen peas and carrots, just because it is very convenient,
um but you can use whatever kind that you like, lets go ahead and put this in there. And now we are going to go ahead and sauté
this for a few minutes by itself, all right after about 3 or 4 minutes, let’s go ahead
and take our peas and carrots, and we are just going to go ahead and slide them to the
side here, out of the way. And now we want to cook our eggs, so what
we do is we take an egg, drop it down there, take another egg, drop it down in there, now
let’s scramble these just off the side here, I like mine a little on the dryer side, and
they will continue to cook as we keep adding things, and this will take uh a couple of
minutes for the eggs, okay about like that, not totally dry yet, but not super moist. At this point I am going to add one half cup
of green onions, and one cup of diced ham, or you could use cooked chicken, or pork,
or beef, whatever you want to do, mix this together for a minute or two. I am going to add four cloves or garlic, which
I used; I used a garlic press, or you could just mince it up really small, once the garlic
is all nice and combined, what we are going to do, is we will take our rice and add our
rice. Also what I am going to do, for a little extra
flavor, I am going to add 2 tablespoons of butter, and then we are going to cook this
for another 2 to 3 minutes. And if you are really fancy you can take it,
and do a little flip like that. I am not that fancy, might need to turn the
heat up a little, you want to hear that crackling sound of the oil, and the butter, and the
rice all cooking. All right once the rice has all been mixed
in, and heated through, let’s go ahead and add our soy sauce, I have two tablespoons
of soy sauce here, you can add three if you like, if you like a really strong soy sauce
flavor, go ahead and mix that in, I myself am more on the lighter side, when it comes
to soy sauce, I don’t like it super over powering, turn up the heat a little bit more, at this
point I have the heat up on high, we are going to continue to cook this all together, and
I am just going to cook this for about another minute. All right it has been thoroughly heated through,
everything is all nice and combined, it is done. Take it off the heat, and then I am going
to transfer it to this nice bowl. Try not to spill it everywhere, awesome, Japanese
style fried rice. All right our hibachi style Japanese fried
rice is done, it turned out fantastic, it is really easy to do, go out there and make
your own, I am Matt Taylor this has been another episode of In the Kitchen with Matt, thank

    I have seen japanese fried rice made on a hibachi grill and that is not how its made. They use garlic buyer and sesame oil. And they oil onions and eggs in them not peas carrots and ham. But I have to say. That does look good. Atleast he got the soy sauce right. They use that to. 🙂
