Quick And Easy Fried Rice

K

Using this recipe it’s the first I have made a fried rice that tastes like fried rice!

Ingredients


  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/2 onion , finely chopped
  • 120 g/4 oz bacon , chopped (optional, or use ham)
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups frozen diced vegetables (I used peas, corn, carrots)
  • 2 cups, packed, cooked white rice (day old refrigerated or frozen defrosted (Note 1))
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 3/4 cup shallots / scallions / green onions , sliced

SAUCE:

  • 1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine or Mirin (or sake, dry sherry) (Note 3)
  • 1 tbsp Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce (or light or all purpose) (Note 4)
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil , optional
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper

Instructions


  1. Heat about 1 1/2 tbsp oil in a wok or 2 tbsp oil in a skillet over high heat until smoking.
  2. Add onion, garlic and bacon. Cook until bacon is light golden - about 1 1/2 minutes.
  3. Add vegetables (still frozen is fine). Cook for 2 minutes so they defrost and water evaporates.
  4. Add rice and Sauce ingredients. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes until liquid evaporates.
  5. Shove rice to the side of the wok / skillet. Add 1/2 tbsp oil into the cleared space, shift wok so the heat is centred over the cleared space. Pour in egg then scramble - cook it through properly, don't "soft scramble".
  6. Add shallots then stir the egg into the rice. Remove from heat and serve immediately!
