Hibachi is a traditional Japanese style cooking device that is used to cook meat, vegetable, and seafood dishes. It is usually a metal hotplate with a container that houses either burning wood or charcoal. But just because you don't have one at home doesn't mean that you can't enjoy the same type of flavor using your very own backyard grill.

This hibachi-style steak recipe starts on the grill and finishes in a delicious soy-ginger sauce, making it a wonderful dinner option. Not only does this enhance the flavor of the steak, but it creates a great dish for entertaining. And even though this recipe is not 100 percent traditional for hibachi - since you'll be using your grill and not the traditional hotplate - it still provides a great way to have the same marinated meat in the comfort of your own home.

Here we provide a flavorful variation on hibachi-style steak that we're sure everyone will enjoy!
