Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.

In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1 cup [1½ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion. 
  • Cut the mushrooms into quarters.
  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions. Set aside for garnish.

3

Prep your protein

  • Pork, chicken, or steak 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 and the five-spice powder.
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper and the five-spice powder.
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper and the five-spice powder.
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper and the five-spice powder.

4

Start cooking your protein

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons 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; 2 to 4 minutes for scallops, pork, steak, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 3 to 5 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.

5

Cook the vegetables; finish the stir-fry

In the same pan used for your protein, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to wilt, 3 to 5 minutes. 

Add your protein and any accumulated juices and half the stir-fry blend and cook, stirring occasionally, until the protein is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with the remaining stir-fry blend.

Serve

Transfer the rice to individual bowls and top with the stir-fry. Garnish with the scallions and serve.
