Pan-frying a steak is quick and easy, but if you always cook it the same, it can result into boring meals. That’s why we suggest to imbue the steak with lots of seasoning like ginger, star anise, garlic, chili pepper and rosemary sprigs when cooking it! Respect the same principle when it comes to rice and you’ll get perfection for dinner!
