Beef / Pork Pepper Rice

I am sure most people have heard of Pepper Lunch and their famous sizzling hot plate. I came across this Cookat recipe on Facebook and was keen to try it out cos it seemed so simple with just a few key ingredients. I even tried making my own mirin using sugar and rice vinegar. The odd thing is the homemade mirin has a sweeter taste while the mirin i bought from Isetan dun really register. Maybe it has to do with the amount of sugar.



  • 1 cup rice (cooked)
  • 200-300gm of shabu shabu pork / beef
  • 2 tbsp of corn (I use half a can)
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp light soya sauce
  • Nob of butter
  • Black pepper


  1. Mix the sugar, mirin and light soya sauce in a small bowl.
  2. Melt nob of butter in pan and add rice. Alternatively, add the butter into the hot rice when it’s just cook and mix well before adding to hot pan.
  3. Add the sauce over the rice and add in the corn.
  4. Stir-fry to mix evenly and then place the meat around the edges of the pan. Add black pepper to taste.
  5. If using cast iron pan, remove from stove and use the residual heat to cook the meat. Mix with rice and serve.

Note: I use a non-stick wok pan so I stir-fry the meat with the rice until cooked and flatten the rice in the pan to get the rice a bit charred for additional flavor. Do not add too much butter as the rice will become very oily.
