Bev’s Stir Fried Rice
By Beverly Hicks Burch
Chinese and stir fry is a favorite with Tall & Handsome and me. Recently I shared out Mongolian Beef recipe. Last night we did a quick stir fry after work for supper after we came in after work. We also had Stir Fried Asparagus with Garlic which is another recipe adapted from Kylie Kwong.
As with most Chinese cooking the time consuming part is the chopping. So, yesterday morning before I headed out for work I cooked my rice (I like to cook it in low sodium chicken broth) and chopped all the other ingredients I needed. Then put them in zip lock bags, put everything in the fridge and had everything waiting. All we had to do we when got home was pull out the wok (the 2nd one we now own ), heat it up and start cooking.
The rice recipe is an original…
Bev’s Stir Fried Rice
2 tablespoons peanut oil
2eggs beaten with ¼ teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon garlic
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
4 green onions
¾ cup chopped ham
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
3 cups cooked rice
3 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon sherry
1. Measure out the cup of frozen peas and carrots. Run warm water over the vegetables, drain and set aside to thaw.
2. Beat eggs with ¼ teaspoon low sodium soy sauce. Spray a small skillet with a non stick cooking spray and when hot scramble the two eggs. Make sure the eggs are broken up into small pieces. Set aside. Also mix the 3 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce, 3 tablespoon rice wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon sherry and 1 teaspoon sesame oil and in a cup or bowl and set aside.
3. Add the oil to the wok and heat on high until the oil shimmers. Add garlic, ginger and green onions and cook about 30 seconds or until mixture becomes fragrant.
4. Add ham and stir fry another 1 and 1/2 minute. Next, add the 1 cup of peas and carrots and continue to stir fry for about another 2 minutes.
5. Add rice and stir fry until rice is warm and all ingredients are evenly distributed.
6. Add the liquid ingredients and mix well. Make sure all ingredients have cooked long enough to be hot.
*Other meats can be substituted for the ham.
