    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice crosswise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Halve the lime crosswise. In a bowl, combine the hoisin sauce, soy glaze, the juice of both lime halves, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Cook the rice
    2 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any small stones or impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups 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.

    Cook the beef
    3 Cook the beef

    Meanwhile, separate the beef; pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned beef in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the beef is browned and just cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    Cook the vegetables
    4 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced bok choy and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened.

    To the pan of cooked vegetables, add the cooked beef and sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until coated and combined. Turn off the heat. Serve the cooked rice topped with the finished chicken and vegetables. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions and cashews. Enjoy!
