If you go outdoors and smell the delicious aroma of sizzling food cooking on the good ole’ grill wafting through the summer air, then you can be assured that the BBQ season has well and truly arrived. And we all know what that means: a jolly good time with friends and family. It’s great to see the children playing by the pool while the adults chat and soak up the beautiful summer sun. And of course, let’s not forget the fantastic meat being served up in the backyard. Nothing beats this. It does not matter which part of the world you live in, everybody, from all walks of life, loves a good BBQ party.

What really excites me is getting the grill all fired up so that I can cook up a wide array of meat with some of my seriously delicious BBQ sauce. We all know the quality of the meat is very important, but so is your BBQ sauce. A good slather of sweet and tangy BBQ sauce will turn you into a grilling legend in the eyes of your loved ones.

After all, there is nothing quite as disappointing as a watered down BBQ sauce. It’s really tough to see fantastic cuts of meat being wasted by a sub-par sauce. I swear a thousand butchers weep every time a piece of meat is grilled with watery BBQ sauce, so I have written this article for all the butchers and aspiring grillers out there!

If you are craving a meal with a bit of a theatrical flair, then Benihana might just be the first thing that pops into your mind. While playing with your food is a big no-no, the chefs at Benihana restaurant ignore this rule and toss and flip the meat and rice right in front of you on their piping hot teppanyaki grills.

Personally, I can’t count the number of times that I’ve had a meal at Benihana. With over 116 branches across the nation, it is really hard to miss them. It is also a very common after office destination. Who hasn’t sipped a cold exotic cocktail from a tiki mug there after a long and tiring day at work? Thinking about it makes me want to hop in my car and storm to my local Benihana joint like a Viking marauder.

A lot of people will have different views as to what is their favorite Benihana dish. My college buddy from years ago can’t get enough of Benihana’s Hibachi chicken. I’m still amazed how much of it he consumes every time we hang out at Benihana’s. My aunt, on the other hand, eats a busload of Vegas rolls at each visit. As for me, my all-time favorite dish is their chicken fried rice. The way those flavors dance around my tongue is a delightful culinary experience.

After trying to replicate their chicken fried rice recipe a couple of times, I’ve found out what it is that makes this dish extra delicious. And that top secret is their garlic butter sauce. This sauce is what gives the shrimp and chicken its flavor. Mess it up and you will just have a bland bowl of chicken fried rice.

So hold on to your spatulas, because today I am going to show you how to make a big scoop of Benihana garlic butter sauce.
