Hibachi Style Garlic Steak and Shrimp

Hibachi Style Garlic Steak and Shrimp

I’ve found that I can easily become a creature of habit, especially when it comes to our weeknight meals. Don’t get me wrong, our family looks forward to the regular dishes that appear weekly on our table. There’s nothing wrong with regular. Regular can be comforting, but sometimes you just need to switch things up, and try something new.

This week wraps up the Weeknight Wins by Sauté Express® Sauté Starter Blogger Challenge I’ve been posting about for the last month. The last challenge is “Express Yourself,” which pushed me out of that regular dinner rut. The challenge was to get creative with Sauté Express® Sauté Starter and come up with something out of the ordinary, or unexpected.

I answered this week’s challenge by beginning with a flavor profile that our family enjoys mostly when we go out to eat: Asian! I rarely cook Asian-inspired meals at home during the week. I don’t know why. Asian cuisine isn’t typically difficult. It’s just something that I don’t think about during the week, again, falling back on our “regulars.” I decided on trying to create a Hibachi Style Garlic Steak and Shrimp combo using the Garlic & Herb Sauté Express® Sauté Starter.

In addition to the seasonings in the Garlic & Herb Sauté Express® Sauté Starter, I added a little soy sauce sautéed with beef, shrimp, sugar snap peas, yellow pepper, onion, and sesame seeds, all served over rice.

It was a hit. I think my teenage daughter (who thinks of herself as quite the Asian cuisine connoisseur at such a young age) was kind of surprised that it turned out so well, and so quickly too. There’s no way we could have ordered Chinese takeout, then make the round trip to pick it up in under 30 minutes. No way. Next time I may add some of our favorite spicy sriracha hot sauce to spice things up a bit.

1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt Garlic & Herb Sauté Express® Sauté Starter Squares until they begin to bubble.

  4. Increase heat to medium-high. Add onion, bell pepper, peas, and sesame seeds and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    I love the Lemon Pepper Saute Express – I can use it for my boneless skinless chicken breast and his fish! It makes coordinating sides easy because they both have the same seasoning / base flavor.

    Melissa says

    I express myself by planning the week’s meals in advance which ensures I have all the ingredients I need on hand. I rotate through approximately 25 dishes, some seasonal, always looking to add something new, take out whatever we are tiring of and always staying true to our favorites.

    Jen says

    I’m definitely going to try your recipe. :) I would use the Garlic & Herb Saute Express to make linguine with clam sauce!

    Oh…I love your HIBACHI STYLE GARLIC STEAK AND SHRIMP recipe. I think it’ll be a hit in my house as well. :) I can’t wait to try out your recipe. And I would also use the Sauté Express® Sauté Starter to make Lemon chicken and herb pasta too. That is kids’ favorite.

    I express myself making familiar dishes using fresh, seasonal garden/farmer’s market ingredients I have on hand. A favorite, simple dish is fried rice although it’s rarely ever made exactly the same way twice.

    Mel C says

    I try to make a double recipe for favorite meals that way I can pack hearty lunches for the next day. Everybody loves it!

    I have fresh asparagus and some shrimp and so I would use the garlic and herbs and have a great meal…..I would add some minced hot peppers from our garden.

    BitsyBet says

    I would make the Italian Shrimp Caprese Pasta with the Land O’ Lakes Italian Herb Saute Express. Seafood over pasta, with Italian seasonings, sounds scrumptious! I can already smell it cooking. Can’t wait to try it.

    I’d like to try the Hibachi Style Garlic Steak and Shrimp. Looks delicious. I try to cook from scratch as much as possible.

    Megan says

    How do I express myself in the kitchen? I try my very hardest to incorporate lots of flavors and tastes, especially veggies and fresh herbs, so my kids can become familiar with them at a young age and because I love to eat them! :)

    Maria says

    I would definitely try the recipe you just posted. It looks absolutely delicious and I think my whole family would love it!

    Thank you!

    Alli says

    I express myself in the kitchen by trying to use fresh ingredients that are paired with healthy flavorings such as olive oil, kosher salt and garlic. Looks like I would love these products!

  15. 30


    Your recipe is gorgeous and I bet it tastes just as good! I would substitute the garlic and herb for the butter I use to create egg dishes such as frittatas and quiches!

    Well done – thank you for the opportunity to win!

    I want to start eating more veggies, so maybe I could try this with vegetables.

    Aggie says

    I express myself through baking. I love making cakes and cupcakes for my husband.

    Looks delicious.. I actually ate Chinese Shrimp with brown rice today. This looks yummy, I love Hibachi, love the way the Japs make fried rice with tons of garlic.

    Kelly Degn says

    Can’t wait to try to make this takeout favorite at home!

    One of the easiest ways to express myself several times day is in the kitchen. For me, it’s all about taking a recipe and adding my own twist on it or switching up a family favorite to make it fresh and new.

    I love to make fabulous meals for my husband! That is one way I express myself in the kitchen! Love your blog, thanks!

    WOW! I’ve seen so many good recipes with the Saute Express product. This would definitely be at the top of my list.

    Konstanze Allsopp says

    I’ve just had to start a serious diet (I have ME and can’t exercise at all), and two days into this diet I find Amy and her recipes. Sometimes God really messes up his timing (or I do it for him) :).

    P.S. How do I get onto more of your recipe sites so I don’t have to bookmark one recipe and then start clicking around for others?
