Now that summer is over, and it is getting cooler, this is the perfect time to hang out outside for dinner.  You can grill up some burgers, chicken whatever you want if you have a grill, but if you’re looking to switch it up, here’s an awesome outside dinner idea (and by awesome, I mean fun and delicious):

Homemade Hibachi!  That’s what I’m calling it for now, but you can call it whatever you want, but I think we can all agree it’s awesome.  Also, if you are a fan of the Paleo diet, you’re gonna love this!!  So here’s what you need:


  • Butter (Ghee or Coconut Oil for Dairy Free options)
  • Any thing you want to hibachi up!  Just make sure it’s not some giant thing that will take forever to cook, chop up your steaks and what not.  Some ideas include steak (chopped), mushrooms, salmon (sliced), shrimp, cabbage (sliced).

Meat Marinade

By popular demand, here’s the marinade for the steak that my mom uses and how you could make it gluten free/paleo.  You may want to adjust the ratio depending on how much meat you have:

  • 2 Green onions, chopped
  • 1 clove of Garlic
  • 1 tbsp of Honey
  • 1/4 cup of Soy Sauce (sub with coconut aminos if gluten free or paleo)
  • 2 tbsp Rice wine (米酒) – optional
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar

Marinade your meats (steak, chicken, shrimp, fish, etc.) with the Green onions, Garlic, Honey, Soy Sauce (or coconut aminos if paleo), rice wine (optional) and white vinegar for at least 30 minutes.
Fire up your griddle, and grease up your griddle with butter or coconut oil.
Place your ingredients on the griddle ad flip as desired to cook both sides evenly.

Almost done!
Looks about done!

Repeat 2-5 until way too full!!

I really recommend trying this out sometime before winter is here and it’s too cold in the backyard! Also, something else you can do is make some salad at the side so that you eat salad while you wait.  But this type of dinner is best with a large group of friends around so you’ll be having a blast and before you know it, your yummy homemade hibachi will be ready to eat!

  1. What marinade did you use? I LOVE Hibachi, as does my mom so this would be perfect for our upcoming family get together, but I don’t know what marinades to use!

    1. Hi! My mom made this one, she used green onions, garlic, honey, soy sauce, rice wine (mijiu) and then marinade for 20-30 minutes for the beef. Hope that helps!

    1. Yeah, I never thought much of it before, cause my family does this since I was little, but then I realized the other day that I don’t even know any one else that does this! So I thought I’d share! 🙂 You should try it out some time!
