Haven't tried it. just storing it.
- 3⁄4 lb sirloin steak, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil, plus a few drops
- sesame oil
- dried red pepper flakes
- 1 1⁄2 cups long grain rice
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 bunch watercress, large stems removed
- 1 egg, beaten to mix
- 3 tablespoons cooking oil
- 2 scallions, including green tops chopped
- Combine the sirloin with 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce, half of the sesame oil, and a pinch of red-pepper flakes. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Stir in the rice and boil until just done (10 minutes). Drain the rice and return it to the pot.
- Meanwhile, heat a nonstick wok over moderately high heat. Fry the beef mixture in the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and just cooked (1 to 2 minutes) and then remove. Put the watercress and the teaspoon of soy sauce in the pan and cook until the watercress is just wilted, about 30 seconds. Remove.
- Reduce the heat to moderate. Put a few drops of sesame oil in the frying pan. Add the egg to the pan and cook until just done, about 30 seconds. Remove from the pan and cut into thin strips.
- Heat the cooking oil in the pan over moderately high heat. Add the scallions and 1/8 teaspoon red-pepper flakes and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the cooked rice to the pan and heat, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce, the beef, watercress, and egg. Heat, stirring, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Drizzle the remaining teaspoon of sesame oil over the top.
It was just ok. If I make it again, I'll probably use less sesame oil. I also had to add a LOT of soy sauce to give it more flavor.
