Fried Rice


I had a craving for Chinese food.  Fried rice in particular. We all love fried rice at my house.  We used to order from the drive through after work on Friday and eat it while watching a movie.  A few Fridays ago Tony said, "Honey, I bet can make this, it's just rice"  You know what, I can !! I found a great basic recipe at about.com.  You can add shrimp, chicken, pork or vegetables.  What ever floats your boat.  This time around I made plain fried rice, but served it with shrimp tempua.  I did not add the green onions to it, as Tony doesn't like them, but I did use the oyster sauce.  Tony loved it, he said "I new you could make it and it's better then the restaurant" !! That's why he is my sweetie !!

Fried Rice
Ingredients:


1 - 2 green onions, as desired

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon salt

Pepper to taste

4 tablespoons oil for stir-frying, or as needed

4 cups cold cooked rice

1 - 2 tablespoons light soy sauce or oyster sauce, as desired

Preparation:

Wash and finely chop the green onion. Lightly beat the eggs with the salt and pepper.



Heat a wok or frying pan and add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the eggs. Cook, stirring, until they are lightly scrambled but not too dry. Remove the eggs and clean out the pan.



Add 2 tablespoons oil. Add the rice. Stir-fry for a few minutes, using chopsticks or a wooden spoon to break it apart. Stir in the soy sauce or oyster sauce as desired.



When the rice is heated through, add the scrambled egg back into the pan. Mix thoroughly. Stir in the green onion. Serve hot.
