This is called “Slop”. That’s what I call it.
It’s complete garbage, but it is something you can do with old rice.
Mine is a take on Korean hot pots. I marinate meat in soy, ginger, garlic, onion, soju, and Korean pepper paste. Then I toss it into a large wok. I toss in vegetables and old rice. I cook it until it turns to a mush, and all the liquid is gone, and then I fry the blazes out of it. It turns into a flavorful, spicy paste with crunchy bits.
It’s delicious. A hodgepodge of flavors all mottled together. I could eat it by the bucketful, which is why it deserves a paper plate.
