Ingredient IQ

Sambal oelek is one of our favorite tools to bring heat and flavor to a dish. Sambal is an Indonesian term for a sauce made with chiles, and oelek refers to the mortar and pestle traditionally used to make it. We recommend stirring in ½ teaspoon [1 tsp] for mild heat, 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] for medium, and the full container for a gentle burn.

Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the rice

In a small sauce pot, combine the red rice and 1 cup [1½ cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and keep covered.
While the rice cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Brown the chicken

Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-wide strips; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken browns, start preparing the remaining ingredients.

3

Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper lengthwise into 1-inch-wide strips, then crosswise into 1-inch-wide pieces.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.

4

Cook the vegetables; finish the stir-fry

In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the bell pepper, season with salt and pepper, and cook until just tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the snap peas, garlic, and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the chicken and any accumulated juices, the sesame stir-fry blend, and as much sambal oelek as you like. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

5

Serve

Transfer the rice to individual bowls, top with the stir-fry, and garnish with the cilantro. Serve any remaining sambal oelek on the side.
