Top-ranked recipe named "Benihana Japanese Fried Rice"
1. Cook rice following instructions on package (Bring 2 cups water to a boil, add rice and a dash of salt, reduce heat and simmer in covered saucepan for 20 minutes). Pour rice into a large bowl to let it cool in the refrigerator. 2. Scramble the eggs in a small pan over medium heat. Separate the scrambled chunks of egg into small pea-size bits while cooking. 3. When rice has cooled to near room temperature, add peas, grated carrot, scrambled egg and diced onion to the bowl. Carefully toss all of the ingredients together. 4. Melt 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter in a large frying pan over medium/high heat. 5. When butter has completely melted, dump the bowl of rice and other ingredients into the pan and add soy sauce plus a dash of salt and pepper. Cook rice for 6-8 minutes over heat, stirring often. Serves 4 This fried rice can be prepared ahead of time by cooking the rice, then adding the peas, carrots and egg plus half of the soy sauce. Keep this refrigerated until you are ready to fry it in the butter. Thats when you add the salt, pepper and remaining soy sauce. When 20-year-old Rocky Aoki came to the New York City from Japan with his wrestling team in 1959 he was convinced it was the land of opportunity. Just five years later he took $10,000 he had saved plus another $20,000 that he borrowed to open a Benihana steakhouse on the West side of Manhattan. His concept of bringing the chefs out from the back kitchen to prepare the food in front of customers on a specially designed hibachi grill was groundbreaking. The restaurant was such a smashing success that it paid for itself within six months. This is a clone recipe for the fried rice at Banihana that is prepared by chefs with pre-cooked rice on those open hibachi grills. Busted by: Barbra

ltparran 2 years agothis recipe is pretty good and I actually like the added peas. I added shrimp and the next time around will make using the sesame oil and garlic butter
pbailey 3 years agoas a fried rice recipe it's very middle of the road especially using soy sauce as it's only real flavoring base. as a copy of the benihana fried rice it's close enough 3.5 stars
Liz1960 3 years agoThis is a wonderful recipe for leftover pork or rice from Chinese takeout.
4 years agoThis is not even close to Benihana's fried rice. I dine at the restaurant in Newport Beach often, and the amazing fried rice is a big reason I do. First off, there are NO PEAS in Benihana's fried rice. Secondly, the MAIN INGREDIENT to their amazing rice is a lot of GARLIC BUTTER. It is also essential to cook with sesame oil. Adding chicken, as they also do, is a must in my opinion.
