Recipe: Chinese ham and egg fried ricePrint This Post
- 1/2 c. frozen peas
- 3 tbsp. vegetable
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 3 c. boiled rice
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 oz. boiled ham (1/4″ cubes)
- 1 scallion
- Prepare ahead: Place frozen peas into 4 cups boiling water and cook for 5 minutes until tender (defrost).
- To cook: Set a 12 inch Wok or 10 inch skillet over high heat for 30 seconds. Pour in 1 tablespoon of oil, swirl it above in the pan and immediately reduce the heat to moderate. Pour in the beat eggs. They will form a film on the bottom of the pan almost at once. Immediately lift this film gently with a fork and push it to the back of the pan so that the still liquid eggs can spread across the bottom of the pan to cook. As soon as the eggs are set, but before they become dry or begin to brown, transfer them to a small bowl and break them up with a fork. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil into the pan, swirl it around and heat it for 30 seconds. Add the rice and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes until all the grains are coated with oil. Add salt, then peas and ham; stir fry for 20 seconds. Return the eggs to the pan, add the scallions and cook only long enough to heat egg through. Serve at once.
