  • SESAME FRIED RICE:
  • Canola oil to cook
  • 4 large whole eggs
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions
  • 6 cups cooked jasmin rice, cooled and broken up (usually day old)
  • 1/2 pound picked bean sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons thin soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
Directions

In a food processor, add chile paste, garlic, ginger, vinegar, sugar, soy and black pepper. Blend well than drizzle in the oils. While still running, add the scallions and cilantro. Check for seasoning. It should not be salty since salt is added right before grilling. Remove 1/2 cup of the marinade and reserve for sauce. In a dish, completely coat the hanger with remaining marinade and let marinate overnight. On a hot, oiled grill, season hanger with salt and grill, about 8 minutes for medium-rare.

CUCUMBER KIMCHEE AND SESAME FRIED RICE:

In a large non-reactive pan, heat the vinegar, sugar and salt. When boiling, add the cucumbers, onions, garlic, chile flake, chiles and scallions. Bring back to a boil, pull off heat and let stand to room temperature. Store in a glass jar with a loosened lid at room temperature to ferment slightly. After 2 days at room temperature, store in refrigerator.

SESAME FRIED RICE:

In a hot wok coated with canola oil, quickly scramble the eggs to soft stage. Set aside. In the same hot wok coated with oil, add garlic, ginger and scallions. Cook until soft then add rice, bean sprouts, soy and sesame oil. Season and add back the eggs. Heat thoroughly and check for seasoning.

PLATING On a large white plate, zig-zag the sauce. Place small mound of rice and top with hanger steak sliced in half, on the bias. Place kimchee on top and garnish with sesame seeds, scallions and fried shallots.
