  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Start Steak

    Cut plantains into ½" dice. Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add steak strips to hot pan. Stir occasionally until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes. Add plantains and stir occasionally until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes.

  2. 2

    Finish the Steak

    Add demi-glace and ¼ cup water to pan. Stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Add half the hot sauce, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper and stir to combine. Taste, and add additional hot sauce if desired. Remove from burner.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Rice

    For best results, pierce jasmine rice bag a few times with a knife, then break up rice inside the bag. Mix rice with 1 Tbsp. water in a microwave safe bowl. Cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave until warm, 2 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Stir in seasoning blend until combined.

  4. 4

    Finish the Dish
