How We Got Here:

The rice is par cooked, and cooled. Ready to be stir fried @Home. When making arroz chaufa it is critical to have the rice pre cooked and cooled before stir frying. This helps give the rice the classic crispy texture traditional to this South American dish. The soy glaze starts with simmering ginger and garlic in blended oil. To this we add the red pepper flake and begin to toast the spice. We then add the sherry, xiao wine, and reduce by half. Next we add the soy sauce and water and bring this mixture to a boil. We cook this glaze for 30 minutes, strain and whisk in the honey and sesame oil. All the remaining ingredients are carefully prepped and packaged ready for you, the @home chef, to finish the dish. Enjoy!
