Teppanyaki: A Taste of Japan
Teppanyaki is a Japanese cooking style that involves grilling food on a flat, iron griddle. It's known for its theatrical and interactive cooking process, where skilled chefs dazzle diners with their culinary artistry. With the Everdure FURNACE™ and our complementing Teppanyaki kit, you can bring this experience to your own outdoor space.
Getting Started: What You Need
To get started with Teppanyaki on the Everdure FURNACE™, you'll need:
Everdure by Heston FURNACE™ gas BBQ: This high-performance grill provides precise temperature control, making it perfect for Teppanyaki cooking.
Teppanyaki Kit: The Everdure by Heston Teppanyaki griddle plate is designed specifically to fit the FURNACE™ grill. The kit comes with the cooking utensils you'll need too!
Quality ingredients: Choose a selection of fresh ingredients, including vegetables, meats, and seafood, for your Teppanyaki feast.
Soy sauce, sake, mirin, and other Japanese seasonings: These will add authentic flavours to your dishes.
Steps to Teppanyaki Perfection
Preheat Your FURNACE™ Grill: Start by preheating your FURNACE™ gas BBQ. Set the burners to medium-high heat and allow the Teppanyaki griddle plate to heat up evenly. This step is crucial for achieving the iconic sizzle of Teppanyaki cooking.
Oil the Griddle Plate: Once the griddle plate is hot, lightly oil it to prevent sticking. You can use vegetable oil or a specialized Teppanyaki oil.
Begin Cooking: Place your ingredients on the griddle one by one, making sure not to overcrowd the surface. Keep in mind that Teppanyaki cooking is quick, so you'll need to work efficiently.
Season and Sear: Season your ingredients with a drizzle of soy sauce, sake, or mirin for that authentic Teppanyaki flavor. Sear each ingredient on one side until it develops a beautiful caramelized crust.
Flip and Continue Cooking: Using your spatula, flip the ingredients and continue cooking on the other side. Feel free to get creative with your seasonings and sauces.
Serve Hot: As each ingredient finishes cooking, transfer it to a serving platter. Teppanyaki is all about enjoying the food fresh off the grill, so serve it hot and sizzling.
Tips for Teppanyaki Success
- Keep the griddle plate clean between cooking batches to avoid flavour transfer.
- Practice your flipping technique—it's part of the Teppanyaki show!
- Experiment with different ingredient combinations and sauces for a variety of flavors.
- Don't forget to entertain your guests with some Teppanyaki-style showmanship—flipping, tossing, and sizzling!
Whether you're cooking for family or friends, Teppanyaki adds a touch of excitement and culinary flair to your outdoor gatherings.
So, fire up the FURNACE™, grab your Teppanyaki Kit, and prepare to sizzle, stir, and create unforgettable dining experiences that transport your taste buds to Japan.
