JOOK RECIPE - NYT COOKING



Jook Recipe - NYT Cooking image

I first encountered jook, also known as congee, in Hong Kong at dawn after a very long night. I was steered to an anonymous little place, where, I am quite sure, I was not the only person with a headache. It was there that I discovered that this savory Chinese rice porridge was among the world's best breakfasts, especially after a night of indulgence. It is transcendent stuff. You might think of it as Chinese risotto, though infinitely less pretentious. It is delightfully creamy, forgiving in its preparation and variable beyond belief.

Provided by Mark Bittman

Total Time 2 hours 30 minutes

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

1 cup short-grain rice
2 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade, or water
1 3-inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
1/4 pound slab bacon, optional
Soy sauce or salt to taste
1/4 cup crispy cooked bacon, minced, optional
1/4 cup minced scallions
1/2 cup roasted peanuts, optional
Sesame oil for drizzling, optional

Steps:

  • Wash rice, and put it in a stock pot with chicken stock or water. Place over high heat until stock boils, then add about 4 cups water. Bring to a boil, and turn heat to low. Partly cover pot, simmer for about 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally and adding water as necessary (probably about 2 cups more).
  • Add ginger and slab bacon, and simmer for an hour more or so. Jook should have a porridgelike consistency. If it becomes very thick, add water. When done, jook will be soupy and creamy, like loose oatmeal.
  • Remove slab bacon, and serve jook in individual bowls. Season with salt or soy sauce, then garnish with minced bacon, scallions and peanuts. Drizzle with sesame oil if desired.

AKA Congee. This is from Mark Bittman's book, "The Best Recipes in the World". He says basically that the extra ingredients really make it. I've included about three options below in the recipe itself--with vegetables, with meat and/or with seafood. It would be best to make this with homemade chicken stock because there aren't a whole of ingredients, and that's when homemade makes a big difference. This is good for breakfast or lunch, or part of a larger Chinese feast. I don't really know how long the prep is on this....it depends on whether or not you're crisping up some bacon, for one thing.

Total Time 3 hours

Prep Time 30 minutes

Cook Time 2 hours 30 minutes

Yield 6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 9

1/2 cup short-grain rice
1/2 cup glutinous rice (or just more of the short-grain rice)
2 cups chicken stock (or water)
3 inches piece fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
1/4 lb thick slab bacon (optional)
1/4 cup minced scallion
1/4 cup minced crisp-cooked bacon (optional)
1/2 cup roasted peanuts (optional)
dark sesame oil, for drizzling (optional)

Steps:

  • Wash rice. Put in stockpot with stock or water. Place over high heat until it boils. Then add another 1 quart of water (4 cups). Bring to a boil again, then turn the heat to low.
  • Partially cover the pot. Simmer for about 90 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure rice isn't sticking. Add ginger and slab bacon. Simmer for another hour. The jook should have a porridge-like consistency so if if it gets too thick too quickly, turn down heat and stir in some more water. When it is done, it will be soupy and creamy.
  • Remove slab bacon. Serve it in individual bowls, garnish with scallion, crisply cooked bacon bits and peanuts. Drizzle with the sesame oil.
  • JOOK WITH VEGETABLES: Soak 4 or 5 dried shiitake mushrooms in hot water until softened. Remove stems; chop. Omit slab bacon. Add mushrooms along with the ginger and 2 finely diced carrots. When it is almost done, stir in 1 Celsius fresh or frozen peas. Cook 10 more minutes. Garnish with same stuff and serve.
  • JOOK WITH MEAT: Cut the ginger into thin slivers instead of chopping it. Add it along with along with 1/2 lb. sirloin, sliced, or 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced, during the last 15 minutes of simmering.
  • JOOK WITH SEAFOOD: In the last 30 minutes of simmering, add 1/4 lb. cleaned squid, sliced. During last 5 minutes, add 1/4 lb. peeled, cleaned shrimp and 1/4 lb. firm white fish (skinned and sliced). You know, I think a one-lb pkg of seafood mix would work in this; okay, maybe with 1/4 of it removed. You would have to thaw it out beforehand and separate the squid so that you could put it in at the appropriate time by itself. (Discard the liquid that comes off from defrosting.) Seafood mix is available in the frozen seafood section.

JOOK (RICE PORRIDGE) RECIPE | MYRECIPES
Jook - also known as congee - is eaten in Chinese communities around the world. Despite its odd name, it has wide-ranging appeal and has become one of the author's favorites. The dish takes many guises in restaurants but can easily be made at home. Use it as a side dish with chicken, pork, or beef. You can also stir in fish, shrimp, chicken, or cooked egg to make it a main dish. While glutinous sushi rice gives the dish a sticky-creamy texture, Arborio retains more of its bite after the long cooking time for added texture.

CHICKEN JOOK RECIPE | EPICURIOUS
Food Editor: Lillian Chou Father: Kuo Hung Chou, Pine Brook, NJ _Jook_, a rice porridge, is eaten at breakfast or as a light lunch in many parts of Asia. Although my father came from Shanghai, he preferred the more flavorful Cantonese version my mother made. Breakfast with "Baba"("Daddy" in Mandarin) on Sundays meant a table adorned with many small dishes of condiments. One of his favorites was "thousand-year-old eggs" (_pei dan_), which are actually chicken or duck eggs preserved in a mixture of clay, lime, and salt. Thousand-year-old eggs are available at Chinese markets, where they're sold individually or in packs of six. (Don't confuse them with "salted eggs," which are brined duck eggs.) Since their quality varies widely, it pays to buy a more expensive variety, if available.
