When 20-year old Rocky Aoki came to 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 used $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 of the 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 6 months.

The most popular items at the restaurant are the Hibachi Chicken and Hibachi Steak, which are prepared at your table on an open hibachi grill. But, since most home kitchens are not fitted with an hibachi grill, you'll have to improvise.You will likely have to use two pans for this Benihana hibachi chicken and steak recipe; one for the meat and mushrooms, and the other for the remaining vegetables. And since many of today's cooking surfaces are coated with scratchable, nonstick coatings, we won't be slicing the meat and vegetables while they are sizzling on the hot cooking surface as the Benihana chefs do.

You're extremely amazing! I'm so thankful that I found your website about the secret recipes. For a very long time, it always bugged me how everytime me and family want a favorite food, it's mostly leading us to spending money every time in a restaurant. It's nice to go out to eat, but I really love cooking, and thanks to you I can share and enjoy spectacular foods at home and homemade

My husband and I made this with leftover grilled steak. Just cut the steak into bite-sized pieces and cook with the veggies. We added a little sesame oil to the recipe and it really makes the dish. Just like going to a Japanese steakhouse and MUCH cheaper!
