Introduction:

So you’re telling me a Steak fried this rice? Lol.. some jokes never get old (actually, yes they do – but I couldn’t resist)

Today we are making Steak Fried Rice w/ Jalapeños. This is a recipe I got from one of my favorite local hometown restaurants in Richmond Virginia where they do a Jalapeño Steak Fried Rice that’s out of this world. I had to come home and make it my own – and now you can Make It Happen Too! 

First things first, we need to get the prep done. For that, we nice an Ice Cold Steak (I’m using ribeye but use whatever you have. We are also using day old white rice for this recipe – along with all of the other ingredients you see her.

Make the steak marinade by combining all ingredients in a mixing bowl and then adding your sliced steak and mixing to combine. The marinade is comprised of low sodium soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger paste, garlic paste, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes.

Allow this to marinate for about an hour. Meanwhile, get started prepping your veggies. We are using yellow and green onions and jalapeños.

All-Purpose Seasoning

For my fried rice, I prefer to mix the ingredients together into a sauce and pour that into the skillet as I am cooking the rice. It just makes more sense that way. You can always add more of an ingredient as needed, but I like to use a mixing bowl to get the flavor profile where I want it before adding it to the rice and stir frying – and then constantly tweaking it while your rice over cooks… don’t serve me mushy rice (unless you’re making a fire risotto, then I will shut up, lol)

Cook the steak and ensure you get some nice color/crust on there. Set it aside and then stir fry your veggies – followed by the rice. Add your sauce and mix to combine. Scramble 2 eggs and cook those in the same skillet off to the side until they’re firm and then mix with the rice. Finally add your peas and carrots – toss back In the steak and plate it up! Enjoy

The Art of Balance

What sets steak fried rice apart is its perfect balance of flavors and textures. Each ingredient plays a crucial role in creating a dish that is greater than the sum of its parts. The tender, juicy steak adds a meaty richness that perfectly complements the fluffy rice and crisp vegetables, while the savory seasonings tie everything together with a burst of flavor that lingers on the palate.

Versatility and Adaptability

One of the greatest things about steak fried rice is its versatility. While traditionalists may prefer the classic combination of steak, rice, and vegetables, adventurous cooks can customize the dish to suit their taste preferences. From adding pineapple for a hint of sweetness to incorporating spicy chili peppers for a kick of heat, the possibilities are endless, allowing for endless culinary creativity.

From the sizzle of the steak as it hits the hot pan to the aroma of garlic and ginger wafting through the air, every step of the cooking process is a feast for the senses.
