Cooking Time15 min

Cooking MethodSkillet



  • For Hibachi Sauce (Yum Yum Sauce)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 drops Tabasco
  • Pinch of salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • For Rice
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • For the Steak, Chicken, and Veggies
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 pound round steak, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 2 large zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion, including some of the green tops
  • 2 eggs, beaten


To Make the Hibachi Sauce (Yum Yum Sauce)

  1. To make the sauce, combine mayonnaise, sugar, garlic powder, ketchup, dry mustard, Tabasco, salt, and pepper  in a medium bowl, stirring to mix well.

  2. Cover and refrigerate while cooking the rest of the dish.

To Make the Rice

  1. Combine rice, water and salt in a medium saucepan, bring to a boil then cover and simmer on lowest heat for 20 minutes.

  2. Remove from the heat but keep covered to steam.

To Make the Chicken, Steak, and Veggies

  1. In a very large fry pan over medium high, heat 1 tablespoon oil and add the beef and chicken.

  2. Toss and stir adding 1 ½ tablespoons of the soy until the meat is browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes.

  3. Squeeze lemon juice over the mixture and set aside to keep warm while you make the vegetables.

  4. In another very large fry pan over medium, heat 1 tablespoon oil and add the onion and zucchini. Toss and stir, adding the remaining 1 ½ tablespoons of the soy sauce, until vegetables become browned and soft. Add the carrot, peas and green onion and continue to toss until the final vegetables wilt.

  5. Push the vegetables to the side of the pan and add the beaten eggs, stirring until they are scrambled, then toss with the vegetables, breaking up the egg, until well mixed.

  6. On a large platter, serve the rice topped with the vegetables and then topped with the meats. Serve with the Hibachi Sauce (or yum yum sauce) on the side.


This preparation requires two very large skillets. If you do not have those, you will need to do the meat in batches, turn it out into a warm bowl and then proceed with the vegetables, also cooked in two batches.

You can scramble the eggs separately as well and combine them with the vegetables at the end. If using this method, slide everything (rice, cooked meats, cooked vegs) into a 200 degree F oven as they are cooked to stay warm until everything is ready to combine and serve.

The History of Hibachi

You may be a fan of this tasty Japanese cooking style, but did you know that hibachi looks much different now than it did originally? If you’re picturing a flat hot plate where a Japanese cook does fancy flips and tricks with knives and food, this is not how hibachi started out.

traditional hibachi is a Japanese heating device that is round or square-shaped without any type of covering. It was lined with metal and held burning charcoal used mainly for warmth rather than cooking. These hibachi were either built into furniture as a permanent fixture to the home or as a portable grill used by Japanese soldiers.

The word hibachi translates to fire bowl and records of the grill date back to 800AD. However, the English use of the word hibachi refers to a small grill, which is how the popular Japanese cuisine has come to be known. Now when you make this recipe, you’ll know the true history of the cooking style.

Looks yummy. Very easy to follow recipe and a quick fix. I do see a few things I would change by increasing some of the ingredients, leaving some of them off, and adding about three times as many scrambled eggs. For some reason, I really love the taste combination of scrambled eggs, rice, and soy sauce.

I LOVE hibachi chicken and vegetables, but I never thought to try making it at home. I'm so excited to make this recipe!

I really enjoyed this dish! It's definitely more affordable than a night out at a Japanese restaurant, and it's almost as tasty!

Delicious! It tasted just like the restaurant's version. Plus, it's much less expensive when you make it at home.

This was so tasty, I went back for seconds. I loved the flavors and the combination of chicken, steak, rice, and veggies. The creamy hibachi sauce was so good

This may be my new favorite dinner recipe. I especially loved the dipping sauce!

Making homemade Hibachi-style food would be a fun idea for date night. This recipe sounds delicious. Although, with so many ingredients for the sauce, I wonder whether I'd just buy a copycat bottled condiment.

Oh I love this steakhouse. This looks like a good recipe to try this weekend!

My family goes to the Japanese Steakhouse by us every year on my birthday. Can't wait to make this!
