You can offer my boyfriend a 5-star, top-chef, orgasm-in-your-mouth meal (one that somehow has an ice sculpture and live fire worked into it), and he would turn it down for Grice.
(I think we call it “Grice” as a truncation of “Egg Rice.”)
It’s caramelized onions and peppers, topped with eggs sunny side up, set on a bed of rice, hit with a downpour drizzle of kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) and sriracha, and garnished with green onion (and a sprinkle of childhood nostalgia).
It’s nothing fancy, but it was his go-to meal as a kid. Not guaranteeing it’s gonna hit your spot, but it works for him so I thought I’d share.
Grice Serves 1 Hungry Partner
1 cup of cooked rice (we use basmati, but any would do)
1/2 medium onion + 1/4 bell or poblano pepper, sliced
2 eggs, fried
Sriracha + Kecap Manis to taste
Black pepper to taste
1-2 green onions, sliced
Caramelize* onions and peppers on medium heat (I usually give the onions a minute head start while I cut the peppers)
Assemble everything in the order above.
Feed to partner. Sneak a few bites.
*Not an authentic, painstaking caramelizing, just a light browning to bring out the sugars. But caramelizing sounds better.
i made a trial batch and had trouble with the mix melting in my hands. the few i did make were great after i left 'em in the fridge and the hardened. i was afraid to over mix the whipped cream. should i add more cocoa and mix a bit more?
Yeah, if they’re too soft, I would add more cocoa powder and chill well before rolling. Glad you’re making them! Let me know how they turn out!
