Today we’re going to make a meal of low carb and keto steak hibachi with yum yum hibachi sauce. I feel a bit foolish saying the name “yum yum sauce”, but I don’t make the rules. That’s just what it’s called.
But before we get to the recipe, I want to take a brief detour to Scranton, Pa to catch up with The Office.
There is a whole two part special called “A Benihana Christmas” so naturally, my mind went there as I was cooking this Japanese steakhouse meal. In this episode, there are dueling office parties taking place and the officemates have to choose between the two competing factions. It’s a choice between fun and double chocolate brownies. This clip features Kevin, my favorite character on the show. It’s really funny. (clip below)
But let’s talk beef hibachi.
This is one of those unicorn recipes that are naturally Low Carb, Keto, Paleo, THM-S and Whole30 compliant. So it’ll hit the spot, no matter what diet you are following. Or even if you are following no diet at all. This is an easy 30 minute recipe that makes real Japanese restaurant style steak hibachi with only 8g net carbs. Add a side of cauliflower rice and you’ll be over the moon.
Just like Kevin with his beloved double chocolate brownies.
