Diveats - At Home Japanese Steakhouse

For a weekend treat this past Friday night, I decided to take a pretend trip to my local Japanese my own parents' house!

First I started with some delicious ginger dressing salads, using the vegetables below and Naturally Fresh Ginger dressing. All atop some Iceberg Lettuce, because even though it has no nutritional value, at least it doesn't taste like leaves.

Then I diced up some vegetables. I diced 'em up reeeeal nice. Mushrooms, zucchini, and onions.

Of course, you can't forget the traditional Japanese Ménage à trois of meats. Chicken, shrimp, and steak. Because if it has protein, it's good for you, right?

I added some fried rice to the mix and the soon the whole gang was heating away on the stove.

I made the rice "fried" by cooking some rice regular-style earlier in the evening and letting it cool a little. Later I scrambled an egg in a pan until just lightly scrambled. I then removed the egg from the pan, heated up some oil in the same pan, and added the previously cooked rice until warmed through. Next I added a sliced green onion and the scrambled egg and served hot!

Once everything was ready, it was serve yourself. Because daddy didn't buy me a pony or a Japanese hibachi grill this year for Christmas, so I couldn't slide it across the table onto people's plates or throw shrimp tails from my extra-tall chef's hat.

I even made my own Yum Yum Shrimp sauce using this recipe. I thought it tasted pretty authentic!
For the brown sauce, since I couldn't find the recipe anywhere on the Internet, I used Soy Vay Veri Veri Terriyaki sauce. It did the trick!

The last step, obviously, is to mix everything up and drown it in sauce and enjoy!
