How to make basmati rice
Place water, ginger, and salt into a pot and bring to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, stir in the basmati rice. Cover and turn down to a light simmer. Cook for 20 minutes. Then turn off the heat. Allow to steam for a minute. Then take the lid off and pour the rice onto a sheet pan and spread the rice in an even thin layer. (this will allow the rice to cool quickly)
How to make fried rice
First you want to make some rice per the instructions on the package of whatever rice you decide to use. I prefer basmati because of the flavor and the lack of starch it has compared to other rice. Once the rice is cooked pour it out on to a sheet pan to cool immediately.
Wok cooking is all about high heat and speed. Most home stoves don’t have this heat capabilities but you can still achieve a great fried rice. In your wok ( or large pan) on the highest heat add 2 tbsp. of sesame oil.
Take your eggs and scramble them in a bowl. When the oil is just about to start smoking add the eggs to the wok. They should immediately souffle up around the edges. Using a spatula or spoon scramble the eggs and when they are cooked slide them off onto a plate and chop it roughly.
Place the wok back on the fire and add the remaining sesame oil along with ginger, onion, carrot, and a pinch of salt. Cook for one minute and then add the garlic and the beef. Cook for 1 a minute and then add the rice.
Cook the rice for 2 minutes and then add the kimchi paste and soy sauce. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the peas, green onions, and egg and cook for another 1 minutes. Add another pinch of salt if need be along with a little bit of sriracha. Taste the rice and see what it needs, if nothing add the bean sprouts to the rice and turn off the heat.
Stir one or two more times to incorporate everything. Then distribute the rice to 4 different bowls. Top with korean chili flakes, sesame seeds, green onion, and micro cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
