Hibachi Style Chicken & Steak with Fried Rice

What you'll need:
-chicken breasts and beef, whatever you like, cut into peices
-brown rice
-2 eggs
-soy sauce
-2 onions (1 for rice, 1 for veggies), carrot and/or peas (frozen is fine), zucchini

This is my new most favorite dinner to make. It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it, I'll break it down for you guys so don't worry. It's like Kanki or Hibachi Express or whatever Japanese style you are used to.

Step One: Cook your rice and marinate meat. Use brown rice, it holds up better. You need to do this like an hour before you are ready to start cooking so that it can cool a little bit. Follow directions on bag, I have been using two cups (uncooked) rice for three people. To marinate: cut up chicken or steak or both and put in bag with little olive oil, soy sauce and salt & pepper. EASY PEASY! Cut up veggies ...onion, peas and carrots for rice, onion & zucchini for veggies.

Step Two. You are going to have three pans going at once.
Pan one is the meat, pan two is the fried rice and pan three is the veggies that you will later mix with the chicken. Heat enough veg. oil to coat bottom in pants one and three. In pan two, fried rice, heat enough olive oil to coat pan. HEAT ALL THREE MEDIUM HIGH HEAT (AROUND 8)

Step Three

To meat pan: add meat
To veggie pan: add veggies (onion, zucchini)
To rice pan: add veggies (onion, peas, carrots)

****This is where things get tricky, while meat and veggie pans are browning, in the rice pan you will need to move veggies to side and scramble two eggs. Once it has scrambled (only a few seconds) add in your rice and 2 tbsp of butter. ****

Step Four
Stir all three pans, if you have a fan in your stove turn that bad boy on.
Meat pan: stir and cook until browned on all sides, then add 2 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp soy sauce
Veggie Pan: stir until brown, after that add 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp soy sauce, add to finished chicken pan
Rice pan: Once your rice has cooked (about five minutes, stirring regularly) add 2 tbsp of soy sauce and serve.
Finished Rice

Finished meat and veggies:

Okay this may have been more confusing than I meant it to be, but It was difficult to follow three different recipes the first time I made this.

HINT: If you like the creamy white sauce they serve at restaurants, I would buy it there. I tried two recipes and both came out gross. I bought a pint from Hibachi much better!
