Jasmine Rice with Ginger and Meat

Jasmine rice in China is not a variety of rice, it’s a rice cooked with jasmine tea. For this recipe, you can cook rice in a saucepan or rice cooker. Jasmine rice can be served as a main dish, using only the rice, tea, salt, but I still like to add other spices too. If you cook the rice without any additional spices, then serve it to salted fish, vegetables or with a some sauces and marinades. If you don’t have loose leaf jasmine tea, use  tea bags instead (1 tsp of tea / 1 tea bag).
This rice is the perfect side dish for any Asian entrée.
