Ingredients

MAIN

  • 3 cups short grain rice (I used 2 cups of white rice and 1 cup of brown rice – using the rice measuring cup that came with the rice cooker), rinsed
  • 3 cups water , using the same rice cup
  • 250 g soybean sprouts , rinsed and bad beans and tails trimmed
  • 200 g pork mince (or beef mince)
  • 3 shiitake mushrooms (optional), thinly sliced
  • 1/4 zucchini (optional), thinly sliced

MEAT SEASONING (MIX THESE WELL IN A BOWL)

BEAN SPROUT RICE SAUCE (MIX THESE WELL IN A BOWL)

Instructions

  • Marinate the meat with the seasoning. Set aside for about 15 mins.
  • Pre heat a pan. Add some cooking oil and add the pork. Stir until it cooks. Drain any excess liquid from the pan.
  • Put the rice in a rice cooker pot. Add the water. Pile up the vegetables and meat on top of the rice. Press the cook button.
  • When it’s cooked, mix the rice and other ingredients well with a spatular. Serve. (To eat, add the sauce as required into the bowl of rice then mix them well. Dig in.) It’s also very common to serve with some Kimchi and seasoned seaweed.
