Red Bean Rice on Stovetop (팥밥)

Created by Shin Kim

Yields: 2~3 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

1 Cup Short or medium grain white rice (a.k.a., sushi rice)

2 ½ Cups Water

¼ Cup Dried red beans

Pinch Salt

½ teaspoon Neutral-tasting oil such as canola or sunflower seed oil

DIRECTIONS:

1. Add dried red beans in a pot along with ½ cup of water. Bring it up to a boil, then

drain. Discard water.

2. Add 1 cup of new water, red beans and salt, and bring it up to a boil over high heat.

Reduce heat to simmer and cook until all beans are about to pop open. Skim off

foams on the surface. Remove from heat.

3. While the red bean is cooking, rinse rice in cold water then drain. Add 1 Cups of

water and soak for 30 minutes to an hour, until rice grains turn opaque all around.

4. Grease the bottom of a clean pot with oil by wiping with a piece of paper towel.

5. Drain rice from soaking water. Add rice to the pot. Add red beans with its cooking

water. The water should barely cover the beans laid out on top of rice.

6. Cover with a lid. Cook over medium-low heat until you smell warm, toasty rice,

about 20-30 minutes.

7. Turn off heat and let it rest, covered, for 10 minutes.

8. Uncover and fluff up the rice all around with a wet rice paddle or a wet wooden

spoon.
