    From the Test Kitchen

    A vibrant drizzle of mayo mixed with gochujang—a savory paste made from chiles and fermented soybeans—deliciously brings together contrasting textures of tender beef, crisp shishito peppers, and crunchy marinated radishes. It’s all served over a simple bed of white rice, which tempers the bold flavors of the dish.

    1 Cook the rice

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. 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.

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. In a bowl, combine the chopped ginger, chopped garlic, and sliced white bottoms of the scallions. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise; place in a bowl. Add the sesame oil and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling.
