This Christmas Brisket Fried Rice from Gail Simmons’ new cookbook is a cheeky combination of two delicious Chinese and Jewish dishes. If you have leftover brisket, this is a perfect way to use it, and an easy dinner too. Though fried rice traditionally uses leftover grains, you can cook a fresh batch of jasmine rice and spread it out on a baking sheet to cool down and dry a bit before stir frying it with the ginger, garlic, scallions, eggs, peas, and brisket. Serve with lime wedges and Sriracha to add extra heat and acid.
