Lucky Beef Fried Rice

Ingredients

FOR THE BEEF YOU WILL NEED:

  • 300G skirt steak (ask your butcher), cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Half TSPN Lucky Taco Chilli Salt
  • 1 TBSPN water
  • 1 TBSPN fresh lime juice
  • 1 TSPN dark soy sauce
  • 1 TSPN Lucky Taco Jalapeño hot sauce
  • 1 TSPN canola oil
  • 1 TSPN cornstarch

FOR THE DISH YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1 TBSPN hot water
  • Half TSPN sugar
  • TSPN sesame oil
  • TSPN Lucky Taco Habanero hot sauce
  • 1½ TBSPNS light soy sauce
  • 2 TSPNS dark soy sauce
  • Fresh ground white pepper
  • 5 cups cooked rice
  • 3 TBSPNS canola oil, divided into 3 parts.
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 medium white onion (finely diced)
  • 4 large garlic cloves (finely diced)
  • Half a thumb-sized knob ginger (finely chopped)
  • 3/4 cup peas
  • Half a broccoli head (chopped into small rough florets)
  • 1 carrot (chopped into thin quarter moons)
  • 1 TBSPN Chinese cooking wine

Method

• First, combine the beef, chilli salt, water, hot sauce, lime juice, dark soy sauce, cornstarch, and oil in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.

• Next, combine the hot water, sugar, sesame oil, soy sauces, hot sauce and white pepper in a small bowl.

• This is the sauce that you’ll be adding to the rice. It’s magic!

• Take your cooked rice and fluff it with a fork or with your hands. If you're using cold leftover rice, try to break up the clumps as best you can.

• Heat wok or large frying pan over medium high heat.

• Add 1 TBSPN of oil and the eggs. Scramble them until just cooked.

• Transfer the scramble into same bowl you mixed them in and set aside.

• Once cooled off, chop into bite-size pieces. And try to resist not eating them all before you finish making your fried rice!

• Heat wok or pan until just smoking and add 1 TBSPN of oil.

• Add marinated beef in one layer, and let sear for 20 seconds. Resist the temptation to move. You want a nice golden brown colour on the pieces of meat.

• Stir fry for a few minutes and then transfer back to the marinade bowl and set aside.

• With the wok or pan over medium high heat, add the last TBSPN of oil, and sauté the onions until translucent. Approx 2 mins.

• Then add the garlic & ginger. Stir well and cook for a few minutes.

• Now add the rice. Use a flat bottomed wooden spoon to break up any clumps. You want to get a nice even coating on the rice. (We always rely on our trusty rice cooker to cook rice!)

• Once rice is warmed through, add the sauce mixture and stir everything together. Get those ingredients mingling!

• Next, add the beef and juices (that juice = flavour town) from the bowl you set aside earlier and stir fry for another minute.

• Add the scrambled egg pieces, peas, carrot & broccoli.

• Continue stir-frying for another 30 seconds.

• Push the rice mixture into the middle of the wok or pan to let the perimeter heat up.

• After about 20 seconds, pour 1 TBSPN of Chinese cooking wine around the perimeter. It should sizzle and steam. Stir-fry for another 20 seconds.

• NOW TASTE! See if it needs a little more salt, soy, hot sauce or white pepper and season accordingly.

• Serve up in big bowls. Grab your utensil of choice and tuck in. YUM!
