Chinese Fried Rice

About This Recipe

"This Chinese fried rice has the flavor those other recipes are missing.
 Make sure you season your rice with salt before it cooks. Add some butter to the cooking water, as well. Other seasonings should be added before you cook, as well, so it has time to get inside the rice. If you like sesame flavor, add 1 tsp. of it after you add the green onions, but do not use it as a cooking oil because it easily burns."

Ingredients

    • 3/4 cup finely chopped onions
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons oil
    • 1 eggs, lightly beaten ( or more eggs if you like)
    • 3 drops soy sauce
    • 3 drops sesame oil
    • 8 ounces cooked lean boneless pork or 8 ounces chicken, chopped
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrots ( very small)
    • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
    • 4 cups cold cooked rice, grains separated ( preferably medium grain)
    • 4 green onions, chopped
    • 2 cups bean sprouts
    • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce ( add more if you like)

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in wok; add chopped onions and stir-fry until onions turn a nice brown color, about 8-10 minutes; remove from wok.
  2. Allow wok to cool slightly.
  3. Mix egg with 3 drops of soy and 3 drops of sesame oil; set aside.
  4. Add 1/2 tbsp oil to wok, swirling to coat surfaces; add egg mixture; working quickly, swirl egg until egg sets against wok; when egg puffs, flip egg and cook other side briefly; remove from wok, and chop into small pieces.
