    Lately my girlfriend and I have been doing a hibachi style of cooking, she introduced it to me and it's been pretty fun. We get an assortment of meats and veggies, along with rice, throw it all on a skillet with sauces and seasonings and eat it off of the griddle. We eat out a lot, and are trying to cut back on costs by cooking our own meals, any ideas or recipes are appreciated!

    Wow, that's a great idea!! Sure beats the hell out of spending a lot on Ichiban's or Benihana's. I think I'm going to do this this weekend. I have plenty of seasonings sitting around that I've been wanting to try.:supergrin:

    Favorite food to prepare? Pour cereal, add milk, enjoy! If it wasn't for my wife, it's all I'd eat.

    Both Ichiban and Benihana's get to be pretty expensive (Ichiban more than Benihanas) we both love that type of food so we decided to try it ourselves and it has worked out awesome the couple times we've tried it so far. We always make sure to get quality meats and fish, notice how huge those shrimp are (for Minnesota at least).

    #1 is a great steak, because it's incredibly easy and quick.

    #2 has to be meat cooked in a smoker. Pork butt, St. Louis ribs, brisket, doesn't matter. Pick one, pick them all. The key is to have lots of meat, and have your buddies come over to drink beer and smoke cigars with you while you wait for the meat to cook. This could be many hours, so prepare yourself. You'll need snacks and plenty of adult beverages to sustain yourself and give you the strength to occasionally add wood and charcoal to the smoker.

    BBQ cooked low and slow is probably my favorite.

    Followed by seafood, steaks, chili.

    Not gonna lie. I like to cook.

    Breakfast.
    Bacon/sausage. Eggs (over-easy, or, scrambled w/grated cheese in 'em!). Biscuits. Gravy (either red-eye or 'milk' gravy!) A few slices of fresh tomato.


    Steaks. Fish/seafood. Especially salmon, rainbow trout, scallops, shrimp.
    Burgers!!!!!!!! Nothing like a big, thick, juicy burger, topped w/ a slice of sharp cheddar cheese!!

    Chili! No beans in my recipe. Meat. Peppers. Onions. Garlic. Tomatoes and tomato paste. Spices.

    Pulled pork, cooked in a crockpot.
    Simple. Tasty!

    Fried or grilled chicken.


    Now. . . If I could just get somebody to clean up the mess. :rofl:
