One clove of Garlic
Chinese Olive Vegetables – (Chinese mustard greens cooked with olives)
Salt and Pepper
Spring Onion for garnish
Knife and Chopping Board
Non-Stick Frying Pan
Beef and Olive Rice: The Steps
1)Mix the Rice
Use the chopsticks to mix the Chinese olive vegetables with the rice. Make sure it is mixed thoroughly, so that the flavour from the olive is spread out.
2) Separate the Egg White and Egg Yolk
To separate the egg white from the yolk,
- Crack the egg evenly in the middle against a hard object
- Hold the egg over a bowl in both hands with the crack facing upward and the wide end tilted down
- Use the thumb to pull apart the egg until it is two halves
- Pour the intact yolk back and forth between the two halves of the shell. Do this until the white drips over the side of the shell.
- Drop the yolk into another bowl.
3)Cut the beef into small cubes
Using the knife cut the beef into ½-1 inch cubes which will make them easy to cook and eat.
4) Mix the teriyaki sauce with the meat
Put your beef cubes into a bowl and pour 2-3 tablespoons of teriyaki sauce. Using your hands mix the beef cubes thoroughly so that they are equally covered in teriyaki sauce. Leave it for 10 min.
5) Cut the garlic clove into slices
Using your knuckles as a guide, cut thin slices of garlic.
6) Whisk Your Egg Whites
Take your chopsticks and use your wrist to make fast, circular motions thoroughly. Until it reaches the color and consistency in the image below.
7) Lightly Sauté the Garlic
Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil and put the garlic slices into the frying pan. Fry the garlic around 2-3 min till the smell is fragrant.
8) Frying the Rice
Add the olive mixed rice into the frying pan. Continue to use the wooden spoon to mix the rice until you see individual rice grains lightly “jumping” from the pan.
9)Add the Egg Whites
Pour in the mixed egg whites, and scramble it throughout the rice while it cooks for 2 min. Turn off the fire and pour the fried rice intro a separate bowl.
10) Cooking the Beef Cubes
Without adding oil, put the beef cubes in the frying pan with medium to high heat. Use chopsticks to make sure each side of the beef cube is a black-brown color. When the beef is cooked to medium-well put it to a side of the pan, and use a paper towel to clean the oil from the pan. Kobe Beef releases a lot of oil when cooked, by cleaning the oil away it reduces the amount of excess oil you will be eating.
11) Place the Rice and Beef
Using a spoon place the egg yolk on the rice and chop some spring onions for Garnish, and voila you have cooked Chef Eric’s Beef and Olive rice. Now go share this with your special someone, with Chef Eric’s dish for his special someone. If not, you can always enjoy this warm hearty meal for yourself!
When using a non-stick pan, remember to not wash it immediately after you have cooked something. Instead use the paper towel to wipe it, and wait for it to cool down before using soap and water.
