Garlic Butter Rice

Main, Rice

Teppanyaki is one of the growing Japanese food culture all of the world.


Kansai style okonomiyki

Teppankai is the style of foods cooked on a teppan(iron boad).


Okononiyaki is one of the typical teppanyaki foods. (If you interested in okonomiyaki recipes please visit Okonomiyaki(Kansai style) and Okonomiyaki sauce.) Now, I am writing the recipe of Hiroshima style okonomiyaki. I hope I can post soon.

Garlic Butter rice is served in these teppanyaki style restaurants as shime (the last menu of the course). Maybe the main reason of this is that Japanese people do not drink alcohol with rice. And some restaurant made garlic butter rice very simply, like all the ingredients are rice, buter, garlic and some seasoning. They do not need many ingredients because they made it on the same iron board where they just make wagyu beaf steak or some other grilled vegetables. So the rice has a lot of umami(flavor) from the beef and vegetables.

I do not have such a big iron board in my house so I used small pieces of beef to add more flavor in a frying pan. I you have an electric hotplate you can make it like restaurants! Let’s try!xx
