Ingredients

  • * 4 ounces sirloin steak, trimmed of fat and sliced into 1/4-inch-thick strips
  • * 2 teaspoons low-sodium tamari sauce (I used low-sodium soy sauce)
  • * 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • * 1 garlic clove, minced
  • * 6 scallions, chopped
  • * 1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • * 1/4 cup water, plus more for saucepan
  • * 2 large carrots (6 ounces), julienned
  • * 8 leaves napa cabbage (8 ounces), sliced into 1/2-inch-thick strips
  • * 1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • * 3 cups cooked short-grain brown rice
  • * Coarse salt
  • * 4 large eggs

Directions

1. Marinate sirloin in tamari with 1 teaspoon ginger, the garlic, 1 scallion, and the red-pepper flakes. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook remaining scallions with the carrots and cabbage until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate using a wire-mesh skimmer.

2. Heat a medium-heavy skillet over high heat; add 1 teaspoon oil, and sear sirloin, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to plate. Return skillet to medium heat, and add remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil and 2 teaspoons ginger. Cook until sizzling. Stir in rice and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir in scallion-sirloin mixture and any juices. Add water, and cook, covered, until rice is heated through and sizzling, 7 to 8 minutes.

3. Uncover, and make 4 indentations in the rice with the back of a spoon. Crack 1 egg into each, and cook, covered, until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 4 minutes. Stir eggs into rice.
