Happy Saturday! I’m so excited to share a delicious recipe from Mr. R’s kitchen- it’s been too long, amiright?! Last night, he whipped up an amazing twist on fried rice, partly out of necessity (we were missing a few traditional items like soy sauce) and partly out of his own creative mind! We love this meal, but it’s the first time he’s made it like this- but I am desperately hoping it won’t be the last!
Feast your eyes on the recipe for Sweet and Spicy Steak Fried Rice!
- 1 big red bell pepper
- 1 big yellow bell pepper
- 1 big sweet onions
- 1.5 cup chopped spinach
- 1 mango
- 3 eggs
- Olive Oil
- Organic Butter (1 table spoons)
- 2.5 cups of white rice (pre-cooked that morning)
- 2 Ribeye steaks (marinated for 24 hours, cooked the day before and reheated in pan)
- Steak Marinade: Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Sauce (Costco), salt, and pepper
- Seasoned with: Balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and Chipotle Tobasco sauce
Marinade for 24 hours in Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Sauce (Costco), salt, pepper, and lots of garlic. Cook on iron skillet set to high. You want to crystalize the sugar from marinade. There should be a nice, crisp, slight char on the outside of the steak. Flip once to cook on both sides; the steak should not be cooked all the way through, just a great browning on both sides so make sure the skillet’s temp is high, it really makes a difference. Let rest and set aside.
Cook rice in the morning in a rice cooker. Let steam out, Fluff, and then cover and let it set for the day until you are ready to cook the entire meal. Cooking the rice and letting it sit ensures you won’t get a mushy fried rice.
Chop all veggies (expcept the spinach) and mango. Coat the wok with olive oil. Add onion and bell peppers into the wok first. Add all the seasonings and mix. When onions are clearing though, move the onion and bell peppers to the edges of the wok and add the mango to the center of the wok. Make sure the mango gets charred edges, especially if the mango is not fully ripe, you want to get all the sugar in the fruit to com alive. Add more Balsamic Vinegar and mix together , then remove from wok. Since this recipe does not have any oyster, terrikay, or soy sauce, make sure to add the Balsamic Vinegar throughout, adding a nice flavor and dark glaze over the vegetable.
Chop the steak into cubes. Apply 1/2 Tablespoon of butter to wok then add the steak. Cook until medium-rare, do not let sit too long! Add rice and Balsamic Vinegar and mix, until rice gets a nice dark look throughout. Add another round of all the seasonings then mix. Add the veggies and mango and mix. When evertyhing is hot take off heat add the spinach and mix (adding the spinach now will make sure the spinach is not super soggy).
Enjoy your delicious fried rice!
