Your Guide to Hosting the Perfect Hibachi at Your Home
People have been trying to come up with ways to keep themselves entertained during quarantine and have started coming up with theme nights and unique dinner ideas. These days, many families decide to have a Hibachi night at home. It will definitely be an enjoyable night for your loved ones and friends. So, read on and learn the steps to making the perfect Hibachi get-together in your abode!
Prepare a Delicious Menu
Fried rice, vegetables, protein, and some sauces make a great Hibachi meal. You can also make miso soup as an appetizer.
Mushrooms, zucchini, onions, broccoli, and carrots are our top picks for grilled veggies. We like to use soy sauce, garlic butter, teriyaki sauce, and salt and pepper to give them flavor. If you're cooking them on a pan on the stove, medium heat should work well. Right before you cook the veggies is the perfect time for an onion volcano!
To make your onion volcano, first slice your onion. Then, stack up the pieces to create a volcano shape. Next, pour a little vodka inside the volcano and light it on fire. Be careful when doing this! You can also add some flair to your presentation by cracking eggs in a fun way and trying to launch shrimp into your guests’ mouths.
When choosing your proteins, try to have options. For example, chicken, steak, and shrimp are all great choices. This way, if you're on a date night, you can pick what you want to eat. If you're entertaining a group, it's always nice to have options.
Fried rice is a must for Hibachi night. You can cook your rice in a rice cooker or a pot. Then fry it up on the grill. Use garlic butter, teriyaki, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Lastly, you can make your own yum yum sauce at home by combining mayonnaise, ketchup, paprika, cayenne pepper, sugar, melted butter, and garlic powder. You can also find yum yum sauce at most grocery stores.
Establish the Vibe
If you want to give the illusion of Hibachi night, you can use an electric griddle or a regular pan. You can also use an outdoor griddle top if you have one. Set up place settings around the grill so people can sit and watch at the same time. Use ramekins for sauce. If you have a squirt bottle, then you can offer people yum yum sauce like they do at restaurants.
To make your night even more special, you can create a whole show based on the theme. Get a cart to roll your ingredients in and use a bar cart or wagon. Cover a car creeper with a white tablecloth and top it with a few moving boxes. Make a chef’s hat out of printer paper, and don’t forget the apron!
You will surely have a lot of fun doing this, and it is a great way to stay entertained and bond with your precious family members and friends. Make sure you have the suitable equipment to make preparations a lot easier for you! Feel free to let us know if you have any questions about specifics for this dinner idea.
