  This fried rice can be prepared ahead of time by cooking the rice,
  then adding the peas, carrots and egg plus half of the soy sauce.
  Keep this refrigerated until you are ready to fry it in the butter.
  That's when you add the salt, pepper and remaining soy sauce.
  When 20-year-old Rocky Aoki came to the New York City from Japan with
  his wrestling team in 1959 he was convinced it was the land of
  opportunity. Just five years later he took $10,000 he had saved plus
  another $20,000 that he borrowed to open a Benihana steakhouse on the
  West side of Manhattan. His concept of bringing the chefs out from
  the back kitchen to prepare the food in front of customers on a
  specially designed hibachi grill was groundbreaking. The restaurant
  was such a smashing success that it paid for itself within six months.
  This is a clone recipe for the fried rice at Banihana that is
  prepared by chefs with pre-cooked rice on those open hibachi grills.
