Fried rice

Easy to make at home. There are endless variations possible here, use your imagination.

6 cups cold cooked white rice *
2 eggs
1/2 c slivered country-style ham or diced Chinese sausage
4 scallions, green and white parts, cut in 1/2 inch lengths
1/2 c frozen peas, thawed and drained
soy sauce
sesame oil
oyster sauce
peanut oil

Beat the eggs with 1 tsp each soy sauce and sesame oil. Heat 1 tsp oil in a wok, swirling to coat the sides. Add the eggs and swirl to form a “pancake” that is 8-10 inches in diameter. When mostly set, flip over for about 5 seconds and then remove to a plate. Roll up and cut into thin strips.

Wipe out the wok and heat 1/2 TB of oil. Stir fry the ham or sausage for 30 seconds or so, then remove. Add 3 TB oil to the wok and heat over medium heat. Add the rice and stir continuously, breaking up clumps and exposing all the rice to the hot oil. This will take about 5 minutes. Add the peas and scallions and stir fry for another couple of minutes. Add the ham, eggs, and 2 TB each soy sauce and oyster sauce, and stir thoroughly. Check for salt and serve.

* For best results the rice should have been refrigerated overnight.
