Healthy Homemade Hibachi Dinner

image

Who loves hibachi!? I DO! I DO! I swear I can literally live off hibachi food that’s how much I love it! But unfortunately I would weight like 900 pounds if I did. Womp Womp.

I’ve seen a hibachi dinner cooked in front of me probably about 50+ times and it’s always such a fun experience! It probably adds to why I love going to dinner at places like this. We all love it- the egg toss, the onion fire explosion, the sake being aimed into our mouths. Oh, let’s not forget the vegetable toss!

When my family and I went to dinner for my birthday I paid close attention to the ingredients that they used and asked the chef when I wasn’t sure of an ingredient. I was amazed at how much butter is put into literally everything. I thought all along that hibachi was such a healthy meal, since the ingredients were raw and fresh. I was completely wrong.

So I thought, “hmm, let me re-create this amazingly yummy meal so that I can eat hibachi more often.” It came out better than I expected and my entire family LOVED IT!

It was somewhat time consuming because it includes everything from the fried rice and the lo mein, to the vegetables, chicken and steak! Of course I could not forget the homemade yum-yum sauce to dip! If your interested in making this, let me know in the comments below what you think!
