How to make it
- Cook your rice according to directions. If you are using instant rice, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Remove from heat and add rice. Cover and set aside.
- Set your electric pan to 350 and let it start heating up.
- Cut the beef, chicken, and/or tofu into bite-sized pieces
- Cut baby carrots in half
- Cut celery
- Cut broccoli into large-bite-sized pieces
- (You can also add other vegetables such as cabbage, baby corn, onions, etc...)
- In a small cup, put in about 2 tbs of sesame oil. Add cayan pepper and mix, then set aside.
- In another small cup, put in 1/3rd cup of water and mix in the curry powder.
- Now you're ready to start the BBQ. If you want, each person can pick out their ingredients and give them to the cook, or you can just make a couple of batches. In my family, we have the mild batch and the spicy batch.
- Put a very, VERY light coating of vegetable oil on the pan. I recommend peanut oil.
- Put the various meat ingredients, if you have more than one, in separate places on the pan. Pour on plenty of soy sauce and add a teaspoon of the curry/water mix. Cook until just barely done. Move to the side a bit so that they don't overcook. Add a bit of soy sauce and water to keep them moist as you cook everything else.
- If you have a big enough pan, you can add the vegetables at the same time... just keep them separated from the meat until it's cooked.
- Put on all the vegetables except for the bean sprouts. Add soy sauce and a tablespoon of curry powder.
- Mix well as it cooks - you have to STIR your stir-fry!
- Bring the meat and vegetables together and add more soy sauce.
- Add the pineapples
- NON-SPICY: stir in a little bit of sesame oil, about a half teaspoon.
- SPICY: stir in the pepper/sesame oil mix
- Stir for about a minute, then add the bean sprouts.
- Stir for one more minute, until the sprouts are cooked but still crisp.
- Remove from heat and serve with rice.
- Note that the broccoli and the pineapple will absorb a lot of the flavors of the cooking, especially the heat from the pepper/oil mix!
- You can also re-heat this. Just put in the microwave for about 45 seconds, then stir-fry in a pan over medium-high with more soy sauce for about 2 minutes.
