Recreating Taste - Hoe Kow's Beef Fried Rice

by Joni Lemke » Tue Feb 09, 2016 12:59 pm

Does anyone remember Hoe Kow on Evergreen? They had the best beef fried rice I have ever had; such umami and flavor. My dad managed Evergreen liquors at the time and would bring it home to us a few times a month in exchange for discounts on adult beverages. :) I've tried to re-create it at home but haven't nailed the taste.

My go-to (which is close but not "it"): marinate thin-sliced sirloin in sake, soy sauce, cornstarch and a little sugar. Stir fry beef, rice, green onion, and bean sprouts with soy sauce. I don't recall theirs having egg, but I do add one because I like it. :)

Any suggestions?

Don't get me started on Godfather's pizza circa 1985 when it was fantastic. I've tried but simply cannot re-create that taste! I know it was a chain, but the flavor was so amazing. It's insane that I can still remember exactly how it tasted (and crave it) over 20 years later!

Have a great day!
