Hibachi Steak Bowls

As a former farm girl, I do love me some steak. This Hibachi Steak recipe is one of the main dishes I return to again and again and I know you’ll love it too. It’s one of those dinner recipes that satisfies the whole family, from the succulent steak bites to the tender, yet still crisp vegetables, it’s all so good.

This dish is also incredibly versatile. Got a zucchini allergy? Substitute broccoli florets for the zucchini. Have some mushroom haters in the house? Use chopped cabbage instead. Can’t find frozen fried rice? Make your own, use noodles or your favourite low carb substitute. You can also cook each component of this dish to make weekly meal prep a breeze.

The simple flavours of garlic, ginger, and soy sauce allow the natural flavours of the steak and vegetables to shine though while also making it accessible to picky eaters. This general combination of flavours is common at hibachi restaurants and known as Hibachi Sauce.

However, if you would like to spice it up, feel free to add chili oil, chili flakes, or your favourite hot sauce.

Finally, no Hibachi Steak dish is complete without a drizzle of yum yum sauce, or hibachi white sauce. This popular Japanese American steak house condiment is easy to whip up but is also sold at many Asian grocery stores or found in the international aisle.

Ingredients for Hibachi Steak Bowls

The beauty of this easy meal is a combination of the humble ingredients, simple flavours, and cooking technique. Every component (other than flavourings) can be substituted according to dietary and personal preferences.

In addition to ingredients, you will need these kitchen tools needed to make Steak Hibachi Bowls: Cutting board, knife, mixing bowls, measuring cups/spoons, and tongs. These days Japanese hibachi is done on a large metal griddle but at home you can use a large skillet with high sides, a wok, or cast iron pan.

Feel free to replace the steak with other proteins like chicken, sausage, shrimp or tofu.

This recipe contains fats such as sesame oil, olive oil, and butter that are used in different combinations. While I don’t generally recommend stir frying with sesame oil because of its low smoke point, mixing it with olive oil or butter will increase the smoke point slightly. Feel free to use olive oil for cooking then drizzle sesame oil on the steak and vegetables after cooking.

Replace the vegetables with any of the following: Broccoli, bean sprouts, green beans, spinach, kale, and squash.

Use Teriyaki Sauce instead of soy sauce or drizzle it instead of yum yum sauce for another flavour profile. For a gluten free option, use coconut aminos or tamari instead of soy sauce.

Choosing Steak for Hibachi Steak Bowls

The best cut of steak to use for Hibachi steak is your favourite steak. Do you like Sirloin steak, filet mignon, New York Strip, or Ribeye steaks? Any of these steak cuts will work in this recipe.

Cooking times for the steak will vary depending on your preference and steak choice. Keep in mind that overcooking the steak will make it dry and tough.

How to Make Hibachi Steak

Even thought the list of ingredients looks lengthy, this dish comes together quickly. In fact, I recommend that all ingredients are chopped and ready to go (mise en place) before you start cooking.

Prepare the Hibachi Steak

To begin, cut steak into one-inch pieces and trim and excess fat or connective tissue. Next, make the marinade. Place 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, minced garlic, 1 teaspoon ginger powder, and 1 teaspoon sesame oil, ½ teaspoon black pepper, and ½ teaspoon salt in a large mixing bowl.

Mix the marinade well and add the cubed steak. Allow the steak to marinate for at least 30 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the other ingredients.

To cook the steak, heat 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cubed steak (discard the marinade) and cook for 3-4 minutes, until browned with a nice crust. Remove the steak and set aside.

Note: the steak will continue cooking for a few minutes on the plate, so cook it slightly less than your preferred doneness to avoid overcooked steak.

Stir Fry the Vegetables

To cook the vegetables, add 1 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 tablespoon butter to the hot skillet. Add zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, and onions, Season with garlic powder and 1 tablespoon soy sauce.

Stir fry the vegetables for 8-10 minutes, or until tender. Transfer vegetables to a plate. Wipe the skillet clean if needed.

Cook the Rice

In the same skillet, add remaining 2 tablespoons butter and 1 teaspoon sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add frozen rice and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Toss rice in the remaining tablespoon of soy sauce. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or until hot.

How to Serve Hibachi Steak

Evenly divide fried rice, vegetables, and steak into four serving bowls. Drizzle with Yum Yum sauce or a few tablespoons teriyaki sauce and garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds, if desired. Serve immediately.

Got Leftovers?

Allow leftover Hibachi Steak to cool to room temperature. Then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat on the stove or in the microwave until warmed through.

      It’s actually quite simple! Of course, you don’t get the giant flames and volcano onion but the flavour is there to enjoy.

      Funny you say that. We just returned from visiting our daughter and they had attempted making an onion volcano at home. Hilarity ensued lol. Some things are best left to professionals.
