…….Nigella’s ‘Korean keema’.
Perfect for those days when you need a quick family meal, that fills tummies, but is tasty and a little spicy.
We enjoyed this, but I’d definitely add more Gochujang next time.
Serves 2, generously.
150g Basmati rice
250g turkey mince
6 thin, or 3 fat spring onions, chopped
125g frozen peas
1 tsp veg. oil
2 tbsp rice wine
1-2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
for the sauce:
2 tbsp Gochujang (red pepper paste)
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp rice wine
2 tbsp soy sauce
Cook yer rice as you would normally do!
Whisk together the sauce ingredients and stir in the minced turkey, leave to steep for about 5 mins.
Heat a wok. While it’s heating up, pour boiling water over the peas which are in a colander (to defrost them)
When the wok is hot add the oil then the peas and spring onions and stir-fry for 3-4 mins.
Add the turkey mince and sauce and stir-fry for 4-5 mins until cooked.
Add the rice wine along with 4 tbsp water to swill out the residue sauce from the meat-steeping bowl, pour into the pan and fry for a further 30 seconds until everything is piping hot.
Serve over the rice sprinkled with fresh coriander.
Marks out of ten? 8
Would I make it again? Yes.
Would I do anything differently? I’d add more of the spicy pepper paste – we like spicy in this family!
Looks better than those served in Chinese restaurants! Very delicious and appetizing.
Looks delicious! I really need to explore Kitchen more 🙂
We like spicy too! And I've found 2 places here in Brunei that sell that Korean red pepper paste – I knew I needed to buy some!
I love this sounds delicious! gloria
I love Nigella's Korean Keema. Isn't it scrumptious? 🙂
I'm going to have to get myself off to an Asian supermarket!!Looks delicious – love that it is uncomplicated (if I can manage to get the paste), nice and low fat too!
oooooh i'll have to try this one!
Although the recipe sounds delicious,Anna,I'll follow your suggestion and add more red pepper paste,since we all L-O-V-E spicy dishes in our household!Filakia!
This looks like a great recipe to have on hand for hungry tummies.
I've been wanting to try this recipe for ages, and haven't gotten to it yet. Thanks for sharing!
oh i love spicy too, and I think my idea of spicy will probably scare most people off. haha. just posted on a singaporean/malaysia sambal chilli paste(actually not that spicy imo) if you're interested!
We're a spicy bunch over here so that is never a problem with us. I love how you are always making something yummy.
May I inquire those places?
