This is a recipe I came up with last night and it is as good as the rice that we order at one of those Japanese grills. The key to the success of this, for me, was to make this in steps. I made it with sirloin but you could leave out the meat for a great side dish or add your own meat, chicken or seafood.
- 5 cups white rice (cooked the day before)
- 1 bunch green onion, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup diced carrot
- 1⁄2 cup diced onion
- 2 tablespoons garlic (minced)
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄2 lb sirloin (cut into thin bite size strips)
- 3⁄4 cup butter (sliced into 8 to 10 pieces)
- salt and pepper
- vegetable oil
- 1⁄4 cup sesame seeds
- In a large skillet heat up about two tablespoons of oil on med. high heat. When oil is good and hot, add all of your veggies and cook stirring frequently for about 3-4 minutes.
- Transfer to a plate. Return skillet to the stove and add another tablespoon of oil over med. high heat.
- Add beef with a little salt and pepper and a couple of pats of butter. Stir around for about 3-4 minutes.
- Using a slotted spoon, take the beef out of the pan and add to the plate of veggies.
- Discard any juices from the pan and return pan to stove. Dump rice into skillet and add remaining butter, soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste, and sesame seeds. Stir constantly over med high heat for about 5 minutes.
- Add the veggies and meat and continue to cook until all of the ingredients have blended and the rice is good and hot. You may want to add/reduce the amount of soy sauce and butter according to your taste.
