Hibachi Fried Rice vs. Chinese Fried Rice

I cant believe how closely guarded this secret is!!!! Wow this post has been going on for how long and nobody has told you all the basics???? First of all, the butter they use is not BUTTER!! put real butter on the grill with your meat and it will taste like burned butter! It is butter substitute that tuns into an oil when heated, and does not burn! It also usually contains garlic, finely chopped, or chunked. They use two kinds of the substitute. A liquid kind, and a solid kind. The solid kind contains the Garlic and is used last. The also use a bit of sake. Now for the soy. If you put regular soy in it, it will taste like your bottle of soy! Yuck! They boil the soy with water(to dilute) and MIRIN, a rice cooking wine. They add a little sugar too. Now for the rice, The missing ingredient you speak of is simple sugar. The rice tastes so different because when the chef says he is adding salt, it is SUGAR! Also the mirin in the soy makes the rice taste different. LAstly is the ginger dipping sauce. A tiny bit of ginger, onions, soy, and carrot juice, thats it. blend well. I have been to Every single Hibachi place in the chicago landd and northwest Indiana area, I have bribed cheffs, and have mastered the recipe. The butter substitute I speak of can be found at Gordons food service. You will not Find it at a regular store.
