Japanese Garlic Beef Cauliflower Fried Rice – Chahan

Ahh Benihana!  It’s probably the only restaurant in the world where the chef lights up a kitchen fire 5 ft high right in front of you and instead of running towards the exits, you respond with ‘ohhhh’ and ‘ahhhs’.  And oh yeah, and their garlic fried rice is pretty good too!  So good, we had to make our own version of a Japanese garlic beef fried rice!

They take the traditional Japanese fried rice and add in an awesome ingredient called garlic butter that just makes it oh so yummy!  So this Japanese Garlic Beef Cauliflower Fried Rice – Chahan recipe is based directly from that idea!

Of course, the first thing we did was replace your rice with cauliflower rice, which was easy enough.  Then we just followed the steps of a traditional Japanese chahan dish and added in some of the top secret garlic butter to make this dish come alive!

And even though fried rice might seem like a hard dish to make, it’s actually pretty easy.

The only thing to watch out for is the precooking steps where you cook the ingredients one at a time and then throw it all together, unlike a stir fry where you throw everything in and then cook it.

We start with by getting all the ingredients prepared by chopping them up to the proper size.  Although this might sound like an obvious step, it’s actually really important because the cooking process of the recipes goes really fast, so you won’t have time to stop and chop the ingredients up.

Once all the prep and precooking is ready, we start with the base rice, but in our case, it’s cauliflower rice.  We cook the rice about half way through and then add the various ingredients to the mix.  Lastly, we finish with the precooked ingredients and various seasonings such as the oh so important garlic butter, Soy Sauce,  and good oil salt and black pepper.   Mix all that up and you have yourself some garlic butter Japanese fried rice, low-carb/keto style!

With all that, this dish as pictured is low-carb/keto friendly at ~5g per bowl and a great option for a quick lunch or dinner!  Serve it with some miso or chicken soup and you’ll have yourself a good looking meal there!
