Hibachi or Shichirin?


With the Japanese culinary boom in the US,
many Nihongo words are introduced in English.

Like,

Fugu, Bento, Panko, Yuzu, etc.

One of them is Hibachi.

When I first said, "I wanna make a hibachi"
I knew something didn't sit with me right.

After much pondering,
I figured what I meant "hibachi" was really a "Shichirin"!

Because a Hibachi, in Japan, is a pot of charcoal used as a heater.
My grandma used to fire it up in the winter,
and she would boil water for tea and what not.
It can be used like that, but its main purpose is providing heat.

Whereas a Shichirin (also a pot of charcoal) is used to cook things.

I can only guess how this mix up came to be,
but it's probably something to do with the ease of pronunciation.

Anyway,
my goal was to make a table top grilling device.

It was quite simple, really.
We got a terra cotta plant pot, and a small grill and a bigger grill.

The smaller one sits lower in the pot to hold the coals,
the bigger grill is the one the food sits directly on.

With this home-made Hibachi (or Shichirin),
we made Teriyaki burgers!!

Obviously, I made the buns too big for the patty...

But, it was soooooooo good!!
Just like you would wish a great book not to end,
I didn't want the burger to become non-existant007.gif

Grilling the meat on the Hibachi must have elevated the flavor!

Yakiniku would be great on this confusingly named grill!!
