Healthy Twist

A few tips to make this already healthy recipe even healthier!

Key Ingredients

  • Hibachi Steak| Use sirloin steak, NY strip steak, or flank steak. I used sirloin for mine, trimming the fat.
  • Hibachi Shrimp| Peel and devein shrimp and remove the tails. Use fresh or thawed frozen shrimp; see Fresh Tips to thaw quickly.
  • Oil and Butter| Sesame oil gives that signature hibachi flavor, but feel free to use avocado oil or another mild oil if preferred, and garlic butter brings it all together, Benihana style.
  • Yum Yum Sauce| Drizzle the finished dish with creamy and delicious homemade Yum Yum Sauce! I’ll show you how to make homemade or buy a quality store-bought sauce.
  • Hibachi Marinade| Soy sauce (or replace with Tamari, Liquid Aminos or Coconut Aminos), Onion and Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper.
  • Vegetables| For the Hibachi-style vegetables, you’ll need broccoli, onions, green onion, mushrooms, carrots and peas, and red peppers.
  • Fried Rice| You’ll need day-old rice (Jasmine rice or Basmati work great); garlic, onion, green onion, egg, and oyster sauce.

How to Make this Blackstone Hibachi Recipe

Make Yum Yum Sauce

If you are making your own homemade yum yum sauce, make it first.

Stir all the yum yum sauce ingredients in a small bowl, then place it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve the entire dish.

Chefs Tips

  • Before starting the recipe, prep all ingredients – Slice, dice, chop, and measure your ingredients.
  • Be sure to have the rice cooked and chilled, too!
  • You can also use an outside BBQ and acast iron skillet for less mess. After all the prepping, place the ingredients on a half-sheet baking pan to take to the grill.

Marinate Hibachi Steak and Shrimp

In a small bowl, stir together the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Next, trim the steak, pat it dry with paper towels, cut it into bite-size cubes or slices, and place it in a separate bowl.

Then, prepare the shrimp by deveining it, if necessary. Pat it dry with paper towels, and place it in another medium bowl.

Next, sprinkle half the dry seasonings mix over the hibachi steak and the other half on the shrimp. To each bowl, add a tablespoon of soy sauce, and toss the ingredients to combine. Allow the shrimp and steak to marinate for 10-20 minutes while preparing the Hibachi veggies and fried rice.

Hibachi Vegetables Benihana Style

See my post on making easy Benihana Hibachi Vegetables for full details; detailed instructions are in the attached recipe card below.

Let’s get started on this Blackstone hibachi recipe! Heat the Blackstone griddle or flat-top grill to about 400° F (205° C) and spread oil where you will be grilling the vegetables.

Grill the vegetables first, then move to a warm spot on the griddle or place on a plate, covered.

Pro Tip

  • Slightly undercook your veggies on the grill, setting them aside while you finish the recipe. Then, toss them back on for a quick warm-up during the final minutes.

Grill Meat and Shrimp

Once your meat has marinated, drizzle the vegetable and sesame oil on the preheated 400° F (205° C) flat-top grill and smear with your spatula to cover the hot surface.

Place the steak on the grill in a single layer, cooking for 4-5 minutes per side. Cook for a little longer if you prefer a more well-done steak.

Pro Tip – Cooking the Meat

  • Remember that meat continues to cook as it rests, so take it off a minute or two before your preferred doneness.
Easy Hibachi Steak and Shrimp Recipe with Fried Rice (10)

Stir fry the shrimp next to the steak during the last 2 minutes of the steak’s cooking time. Once the pink is gone and the shrimp turns opaque, they’re thoroughly cooked!

Toss the steak and shrimp together and top with a tablespoon of butter; go ahead and try flipping the shrimp like your favorite Japanese steakhouse restaurant.

Lastly, remove both from the grill to a plate, cover it with aluminum foil, and let it sit for 10 minutes while you prepare the tasty fried rice.

Fresh Tips

  • If you use frozen shrimp for this recipe, run it under cold water to thaw and pat the shrimp dry with paper towels before adding it to the marinade.
  • No flat-top grill? Heat a large cast iron skillet or wok over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes until it’s nice and hot. Then, proceed with the recipe as directed.
  • If using a flat-top grill, turn down the temp on an unused portion and place vegetables and fried rice in the back to keep warm while preparing other aspects of the dish.

Quick Hibachi Fried Rice

Ensure the rice is cooked and chilled in the fridge before diving in, I used white rice, but you can use brown rice. Day-old rice is best; it will be less mushy that way!

See my post on making easy Hibachi fried rice for full details; detailed instructions are in the attached recipe card below.

No Flat Top Grill, No Problem

If you don’t have a Blackstone griddle, try using an electric griddle, a large cast iron skillet or griddle on your stovetop OR use on the grill using a cast iron griddle or cast iron skillet!

Be sure to heat these cast iron pieces on the stovetop or grill for 3-5 minutes over medium-high heat until really hot!

Final Step, Serve!

Now, it’s time to plate and serve while the food is steamy hot! Place a serving of hibachi vegetables, fried rice, steak, and shrimp on each plate, or enjoy this easy recipe family-style. Top everything with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and sliced green onion for a beautiful presentation –

And don’t forget to drizzle on your homemade Yum Yum sauce!

Variations & Substitutions

  • Hibachi Chicken:Chicken is a great replacement for either steak or shrimp. Prepare the meat the same as directed in this recipe. Make it all chicken, or swap just one protein.
  • Favorite Veggies:If you don’t like something, leave it out, or swap it! Use green bell peppers rather than red or add summer squash, snow peas, bok choy, and napa cabbage, etc.
  • Dairy-Free: Substitute your favorite high-heat oil for the butter to make this dairy-free. I like Avocado or Coconut oil.
  • Gluten-Free Hibachi:The ingredients for this recipe are all naturally gluten-free. However, the sauces like soy, fish, and oyster sauce tend to contain traces of gluten, check the bottles.
  • Low-Carb: Replace the fried rice with cauliflower rice for a low-carb version of this dish.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is hibachi-style cooking?

Hibachi cooking is a Japanese method typically involving protein, like chicken, steak, or seafood, and various vegetables cooked on a sizzling-hot, smooth iron surface, similar to a Blackstone griddle. Use a wok, electric griddle, or hot pan. Skilled chefs at some hibachi restaurants cook your meal right before you!

What seasonings do hibachi chefs use on rice?

If you want that delicious hibachi restaurant flavor, cook veggies, meat, and rice with soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic. The other two optional components of hibachi sauce are oyster or fish sauce and sometimes a splash or rice vinegar or a squeeze of lemon juice.

What’s the difference between hibachi steak and shrimp and teriyaki steak and shrimp?

The two dishes are made using similar recipes and share some main ingredients, like soy sauce. However, the flavors are different. Hibachi meat may be slightly sweet, but it’s mainly savory and salty with notes of garlic. On the other hand, teriyaki shrimp or steak has a stickier sauce with a soy sauce base and added sugar to make it much sweeter and thicker.
