Ginger: Not just a character on Gilligan's Island. Ginger has its own unique and intangible flavor, managing to be both zesty and sweet. In this meal, it combines perfectly with the kick of gochujang, pungent garlic, and sweet teriyaki, forming the perfect of flavor combination for the steak and peppers, like Batman and Robin. Had enough 60s TV references for one meal description? This meal comes together so easy, you'll just twitch your nose and it'll appear. (Ok, maybe not that easy; there's no Elizabeth Montgomery in your box.)
Bring a medium pot with rice and 1½ cup water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, 18-20 minutes.
Remove from burner. Set aside covered.
While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Stem, seed, remove ribs, and slice red bell pepper into ¼" strips.
Trim and thinly slice green onions.
Pat steak strips dry, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Sear the Steak Strips
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.
Add steak strips to hot pan and stir occasionally until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes.
Remove from burner. Transfer steak strips to a plate.
Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Cook the Pepper
Return pan used to cook steak strips to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add red bell pepper and a pinch of salt to hot pan and stir occasionally until crisp-tender, 2-4 minutes.
Finish the Dish
Add green onions (reserve a pinch for garnish), ginger, and garlic. Cook until aromatic, 30-60 seconds.
Add steak strips and any accumulated juices, teriyaki glaze, ¼ cup water, and half the gochujang. Stir occasionally until thoroughly combined, 1-2 minutes.
Taste, and add remaining gochujang and a pinch of salt if desired. Remove from burner.
