Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.
  • Set aside half the sesame seeds for garnish.
In a small sauce pot, combine the rice, miso, and 1¼ cups [2¼ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork, stir in half the sesame seeds, cover, and keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Prep your protein

Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper.

Chicken, steak, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.

Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

3

Prep the vegetables

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Remove the stems from the shiitakes; cut the caps into quarters.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate.

4

Par cook your protein

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes for shrimp or scallops, 2 to 4 for pork or beef strips, 3 to 5 minutes for tofu or chicken. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.

5

Finish the stir-fry

Add the tomatoes, shiitakes, and white parts of the scallions to the pan, season lightly with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir in the fermented black soybean paste and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Stir in your protein and cook until the sauce is thickened slightly and the protein is just cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the rice to individual bowls and top with the stir-fry. Garnish with the green parts of the scallions and remaining sesame seeds and serve.
