This dish takes its name from the Korean word for mixing rice. Which is exactly what you’re meant to do after serving it: put your rice in a bowl, add the toppings, and mix it all together so that those flavors and textures combine in a glorious mishmash. There are plenty of flavors and textures going on here, too, like sweet carrot, juicy zucchini, and beef tossed with garlic, ginger, and soy.
Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.
White Wine Vinegar
Soy Sauce(ContainsWheat, Soy)
Wash and dry all produce. Trim and halve zucchini lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise into half-moons. Trim and thinly slice mushrooms. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Peel carrots; shave lengthwise into ribbons, rotating as you go, until you get to the core. Discard core. Peel and mince ginger. Mince garlic.
In a small pot, combine rice, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4 servings), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine scallion whites, vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Set aside to pickle. In a separate small bowl, combine sesame oil, half the soy sauce (you’ll use the rest later), 1 TBSP sugar (2 TBSP for 4 servings), and as much sriracha as you like.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until just tender, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add zucchini and another drizzle of oil to pan. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until tender, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to bowl with carrots. Add mushrooms and another drizzle of oil to pan. Cook, stirring, until tender, 3-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowl with other veggies.
Heat another drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 20-30 seconds. Add beef and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes. Drain any excess grease from pan. Increase heat to high and cook until beef is browned, crisp, and cooked through, 2-3 minutes. Stir in remaining soy sauce and cook until mostly evaporated, 1-2 minutes.
Fluff rice with a fork; divide between bowls. Arrange beef, zucchini, carrots, and mushrooms on top. Top with pickled scallion whites (draining first). Drizzle with sauce and any remaining sriracha to taste. Sprinkle with scallion greens and serve.
