Cook the rice
1 Cook the rice

Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Halve the snow peas crosswise (removing the tough strings if desired). In a bowl, combine the ponzu sauce, hoisin sauce, candied ginger, soy glaze, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Carefully drain off and discard any excess oil.

To the pan, add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions and halved snow peas. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined and the beef is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked rice topped with the finished stir-fry (including any sauce from the pan). Garnish with the sesame seeds and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
