How to make Sanbeiji
This recipe is so easy. Its called san1bei1ji1 which translates to "three cup chicken," named for the three main ingredients; soy sauce, sesame oil, and rice wine.
- Brown the chicken in a pan with some vegetable oil.
- Transfer to a pot and stir in the soy sauce, sesame oil, and rice wine.
- Bring to a boil then lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
- Discard the sauce, or keep some of it if you want. Mix in some fresh basil and serve with rice.
Note: I usually use less than 1 part sesame oil to make the dish less greasy. Also, some restaurants make this with sugar instead of rice wine. Of course, I often use sweet Israeli wine when I'm out of rice wine.
