Hibachi is the type of restaurant that serves food on a teppanyaki grill. That’s why you might see both terms used here.

You can’t cook noodles on a hibachi, it has open grates the noodles would fall through, but you can grill the meat on an open-flame grill if you want and then add everything into a teppan or griddle or even skillet on the stove later.

I’ll share how to do all of that.

Equipment

  • Teppan or Hibachi grill

Ingredients
  

  • 8 ounces Ramen or lo mein noodles (or angel hair pasta)
  • ½ pounds steak or your favorite stir-fry beef cut
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger grated
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 scallions plus more for serving if desired
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Instructions
 

  • Turn on the stove, pour 250 ml of water into a pot, put in 4 tbsp of salt, then boil the noodles. Once the noodles are tender, remove them from the pot and drain. Then set them aside for later use.
  • Meanwhile, cut the beef into small thin strips if using a teppan plate or a grilling pan. Leave them in larger pieces for BBQ hibachi grill style and cut them into thin strips after grilling.
  • Prepare a medium-sized bowl and add the brown sugar, cornstarch, garlic powder, ginger powder, and soy sauce, then whisk them to mix. Toss beef strips into the soy sauce mixture and use tongs to coat the meat strips. Leave the beef strips in the bowl and allow to marinate for 20 – 30 minutes.
  • Shred the carrots, mince the garlic, and chop scallions into small rounds.
  • Turn on the stove and set to high heat. Place the teppan plate (or skillet) on the stove and heat 1/3 of the butter and sesame oil. Or you can also use an electric teppanyaki plate.
  • Once the oil is hot enough, use the tongs to pick up the beef strips and place it in the skillet (or teppan plate) to fry or place them on the hibachi grill. Cook beef strips until they get a brown color (do not stir or turn over).
  • Flip the strips to cook the raw parts once the other sides become brown.
  • Toss in the noodles, remaining butter, garlic, scallions, and carrots in the skillet or on the teppan. Then stir until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Pour in the marinade and allow the noodles to absorb it until they also get a brown color. When grilling the meat hibachi style, this is the time to remove them from the grill. Cut them into thin slices and add them to the noodles.
  • Transfer them to a clean plate or bowl and put more scallions on top of the noodles. Now you have your beef hibachi noodle dish!

Cooking tips

If you’re using pre-packaged noodles, follow the package directions. Otherwise, cook the noodles in boiling water for 3-5 minutes, or until tender. Drain and set aside.

To make the sauce, combine the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. This can take some time but it’s worth it to get a smooth consistency for covering and marinating the beef.

For the beef recipe, you should have a sharp Hibachi knife like the one I’ve reviewed here. You’d be amazed at how cheap a good one is, but I also have some top choices for you.

Substitutes

If you don’t have ramen noodles or lo mein egg noodles, soba noodles will do as well for a more yakisoba-style dish.

Sesame oil substitute for beef noodles

If you don’t have sesame oil, you can substitute peanut oil, you won’t get the same flavor but that’s ok. If you don’t have that, you can leave it out altogether. It’s more about the taste than about adding in oil.

Of course, if you have some sesame seeds you can add those as well. Just make sure you toast them first separately if they aren’t toasted yet.

Soy sauce substitute for beef noodles

If you’re out of soy sauce, you can use tamari or coconut aminos as a replacement. The flavor will be slightly different but the dish will still be tasty.

How to store leftovers

Leftover beef noodles can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove until warmed through.

Side dishes and condiments to pair hibachi noodles with

As we’ve already hinted above, Asian noodles are notoriously flexible when it comes to food pairing. You can practically pair them with any food that’s listed on recipes sites!

You can eat them with chicken, vegetables, salads, beef or pork steak, lamb chops, shrimp, fish, eggs, etc. They’ll taste good every time, just as long as the ingredients are properly mixed and cooked on the fire for the perfect amount of time.

Condiments such as fried lotus with pork, kabocha pork stir-fry, and inari sushi are also great to pair with hibachi noodles.

You can use either soy sauce based seasonings mixed with other spices or a tomato sauce based chili seasoning for added flavor.

What’s the sauce used in hibachi?

If you’ve been to restaurants like Benihana Japanese Steakhouse, then you might’ve noticed that the chefs use special sauces in their teppanyaki hibachi noodles.

The two most popular sauces used are ginger sauce and yum yum sauce! The former is made with ginger, tamari, and rice vinegar, and the latter consists of mayonnaise, ketchup, mirin, rice vinegar, and spices.

Conclusion

Teppanyaki beef noodles can be a healthy dish because you can add so many vegetables and watch the sauce as much as you want. Use this recipe as a starting point and create you own favorite version!
