Honey Beef Rice is a dish from Jollibee which they introduced in the 90’s. It was short-lived but was relaunched this year, a dish of thinly sliced beef cooked in a thick sauce made from soy sauce and honey.
- 800 g thinly sliced rump steak or sukiyaki cut
- 1 large white onion, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 tbsp flour, dissolved in 1/2 cup water
- 1/3 cup Filipino soy sauce
- 2 tbsp oyster sauce
- 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1/3 cup honey
- rice, as desired
- In a wok over high heat, put around 3 tbsp of oil, once it starts smoking stir fry beef in high heat until brown on both sides. You might need to do this in batches for your meat not to release its juices, it needs a constant high heat. Remove beef from the wok then set it aside.
- Using the same wok add oil then sauté onions in medium heat, stir fry for a minute until the layers of the onions are separated.
- Pour the water to deglaze and bring it to a boil.
- In a bowl combine dissolved flour, soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce and honey, mix it well to combine then pour into the wok. Bring heat to high then let it boil.
- Add the beef back, toss to coat beef evenly with the sauce then simmer in low heat for 15 minutes while covered. Turn the heat off.
- Place freshly cooked rice on bowl, add a good amount of Honey Beef Rice on top then serve.
They just opened an outlet in Kuala Lumpur. I love their commercials, dunno why they have not come out with one for 2021 yet. Looking forward to it!!!
Their Christmas commercial, that is.
The beef looks good 🙂 I would rather try your homemade version rather than from fast food restaurants.
This is the first I’m hearing of Honey Beef Rice, but it sounds fantastic – the combination of sweet and savory would be quite delicious over rice. I need to make this!
Love this! Great sauce ingredients.
This looks SO good! Haven’t heard of this dish before, but now that I have, I want it. 🙂 Good stuff — thanks.
This shredded steak combined with onions looks so juicy and delicious. And combined with rice, that’s an ultimate comfort dish!
No offense to Jollibee purists, but your version sounds much better, and made with far higher quality ingredients!
This wonderful, Raymund! Definitely putting it on my list to make!
Food nostalgia is always fun!
