  1. Leftover chilled rice. Leftover chilled rice works great for the hibachi fried rice recipe. Chilled rice works great because rice dries out in the fridge making them ideal for stir-frying. Freshly cooked rice is soft and is not ideal for this recipe. It will get mushy when stir-fried.
  2. Large pan. Ideally, a hot plate or griddle is ideal to make hibachi fried rice. Of course, homemade version versions aren’t made on the hot griddle. Use a wok or big wide skillet. The surface area should be big so you can toss rice around so it can stir-fry and not steam in the pan.
  3. High heat. Cook everything on high heat moving it quickly and frequently. Do not let veggies sit in wok steam cook.
  4. Best quality soy sauce. Use the best quality soy sauce, fried rice taste depends on it. Choose low sodium soy sauce, it’s less salty and better for health.
