This Benihana fried rice recipe takes day-old rice and makes something totally delicious out of it. Every bite is filled with veggies, cooked shrimp, scrambled eggs, rice, and umami goodness. Best of all though, 20 minutes is all it takes to make, and, honestly, it's so good you won't believe it's not the hibachi fried rice from Benihanas itself!
