Healthier Benihana Fried Rice

60 minutes

serves 3

If you guys know me, you know I freakin’ love Benihana’s fried rice. So much so, that I needed to find a way to make it at home, with just as much flavor, but a little less guilt. I swapped out the white rice for brown rice, then I used ghee instead of butter for sautéeing. At Benihana, they make their rice with a garlic infused butter…and lots of it. Now, I love my compound butters, but for this, I’m just cutting the amount of buttery-ness a bit, and using extra garlic and some soy sauce to spruce it up. My favorite protein at Benihana is the steak, so that’s what I used for this. Substitute any protein you want, or negate it all together!

I made this recipe in partnership with Ninja Foodi, and I used their pressure, sauté and air crisp functions to make it a one pot meal. However, you can just prepare your rice with water, then you can combine all the ingredients in your skillet.
