Fly Lice

Fried rice is stupid good. Other food looks like burnt breakfast toast by comparison. It's also really easy to make and this guy is going to show you how.

I use Jasmin rice because it tastes better and has better texture than white enriched. Use about 2/3 of the water the directions call for, cook, and let it cool and then refrigerate.  

  Chop up a small yellow onion and some green onion.  Thaw out a package of peas and carrots and crack and whisk a couple of eggs.  

Get some vegetable oil heating in a pan on high.  I use about a tablespoon per cup and a half of rice.  Cook the yellow onion first for about 3 minutes.  

Then add the rice and the peas and carrots.  This will steam for a while as the moisture evaporates from the rice and veggies.  Cook for about 5-8 minutes on high until it's crackling and popping pretty good.  

Divide the pan into North and South.  

Pour a little more oil into the empty side followed immediately by ole Johnny Reb.  

You have to stir the eggs quickly...they are really frying more than scrambling.  Add the green onion about a minute after the eggs.   

Then add soy sauce to taste.  I used about two tablespoons for a cup and a half of rice...go less or more depending on your salt preference. That's going to steam up pretty good.    

  So just keep stirring until the moisture cooks out and you have good color consistency throughout the dish.  

Slap that crap on a plate with the other Chinese that you cooked.  What's that you say?  You could never make anything as delicious as what's picture below?  Bullshit.  Here's the link

Eat up it doesn't get much better...

  1. I add some freshly-grated ginger and garlic to the pan with those onions for a little more kick to the mouth. I use sesame oil mixed with veg oil, and sometimes even use a couple of tablespoons of oyster sauce in with the soy sauce at the end. :D Not that I'm trying to tell you what to do... *whistles*
