Previously I wrote about some easy recipes for lazy students who have never cooked by themselves, and today I would like to continue the series with a very tasty, authentic recipe for China egg fried rice. My wife, being Chinese, make it at all times. And I love!
Traditionally, egg fried rice is a dish designed to use up remains – not a lot of sweet rice cooking to do so, for example. In Asian families, is quite normal that the pot of rice in constant use, which also inevitably means that sometimes the rice will not be pleasant to eat on their own, so why the fried egg was invented so you always have warm rice on hand.
It is a simple Fried Rice Recipe with plenty of room to customize with any meat and vegetables was last nights dinner – so don’t feel like you comply rigidly.
-2 teaspoons sesame oil
-300 g of any regular or long grain white rice
-2 teaspoons of salt and pepper 2
-1 green onion
-1 tbsp soy sauce
Other things that may want to add:
-100 g of beef, bacon or ham
-100 g peas (frozen is OK)
-100 g bean sprouts
-Red or green pepper
-Actually, all that is left in the fridge!
I am going to assume your rice is cooked, and sitting in a container in the fridge, or still hot in the pot of rice already. Not okay to work with.
Start tapping the eggs, but not too much. My wife always fried the egg first, so pour a single teaspoon of sesame oil in a frying pan and fry the eggs as if to encode them. Do not cook too, just so that solidify it – not want Brown. Take out them and throw them in the bowl at the moment.
At this point, how to perform will depend on what its ingredients. Everything what is using though, chop up small. A large Chinese knife helps this to go a little faster! If you have raw meat or fresh vegetables, then, go ahead and fry them now. If all’re putting you it is remains of last night, probably good pass directly.
This final step is probably the most difficult, so listen carefully! Throw everything in the Pan fry with a little oil and FRY. I know that it is difficult…
Constantly removing it, season with salt and pepper and use his spatula to break any clusters of egg or rice: mix well! How much time you kitchen is a matter of personal preference. Personally, I like to burn a bit at the bottom to get some nice crispy bits, but opens it its whistle.
