A simple hibachi fried rice made with butter, soy sauce, and veggies.


  • 2 cups previously cooked long-grain white rice
  • 1/4 cup carrots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup white onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil, for frying

Peanut butter sauce

  • 2 tablespoons less sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Prepare white rice using instructions on packaging, let cool and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, chop all vegetables into finely chopped pieces, set aside in prep bowls.
  3. To make the “peanut butter sauce,” place butter in microwave for 10-15 seconds to soften, stir in soy sauce and garlic powder until mixed. Set aside.
  4. In a large skillet or wok, bring oil to just under high heat.
  5. Fry one egg until no longer runny and break into small pieces using the tip of a spatula.
  6. Add vegetables to the wok and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add rice and stir in “peanut butter” sauce until well mixed and fully coated. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes. Serve immediately.


I’ve found fully cold or day-old rice works best. It doesn’t clump together when frying. Can also serve with hibachi chicken.
