READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This comes from Yoshiaki Kirsana, a chef at a Houston Benihana restaurant. Yoshiaki was kind enough to submit this for publication in a local Methodist church's cookbook, published about 20 years agp.

This is the Authentic Version. It was also published by The Los Angeles Times in their "California Cookbook" in 1981. The other attempts at this recipe do not compare. They add too many strong or sugar filled ingredients. Great Job! P.S. I use regular vegetable oil instead of the soybean oil. It works just fine.
