preferably one you've actually made and eaten
going to the grocery store in a bit and want to pick up ingredients for supper tonight
I make it better than the jap joint here in town!
Rice (of course)
You must steam the rice, do you have a steamer? boiling it wont work.
Dice the onions, green onions and scrape strips from the carrots and add to the rice half way through the steaming process.
Heat up a skillet or wok, use safflower oil and scamble two eggs and chop the pieces small as you scramble them.
Once scrambled throw a big chunk of butter in the skillet and dump the rice in. mix well with the melted butter and egg chunks. sprinkle a small amount of water in ..... sprinkle a good bit of salt in, add some sesame seeds. After you have turned the rice once or twice, sprinkle in some teryaki sauce. keep turning the rice, let it cook 30 sec to a minute before turning. I have never timed this process, but I guess it's ready when you see the rice trying to dry out .....
Will you be adding any meat? shrimp? chicken? Shrimp should be stir fried on very high heat with very little liguid. safflower oil, then a touch of teryaki, sprinkle salt. maybe some lemon juice.
Melt some butter in a pan and then soft scramble some eggs. Cut them into pieces and set aside. Make up a batch of Minute Rice (easiest way) and keep it warm. Heat oil in wok or other high-sided pan. Add ginger and garlic (optional) and get it hot, but don't burn off the oil. Add pre-cooked meat (I like chicken or pork), add veggies (your choice, but you can get bags of frozen chinese veggies) and heat through. Add rice, and soy sauce. Keep stirring over medium heat and serve with egg rolls or other tasty dish.
Swing by your local Chinese joint. Faster, easier, and probably cheaper, too!
Thus speaketh Zaphod................ who can't boil water!
nope, just a rice cooker or pot on the stove
I want to use CHICKEN in it too.
It's pretty simple and my recipie will get the panties off an Asian girl:
Fry chopped onions, peas, fresh mushrooms in plenty of oil on high heat. (you can also add copped carrots and scallions if you want to be fancy)
Add minced ginger and garlic (tablespoon of each).
Add the rice. Once it is well-coated with oil and warmed up in the pan add two beaten eggs. Cook until the eggs are almost done then add soy sauce and either pepper sauce or cyanne powder for spice.
You cut the chicken into chunks and stir fry it like the shrimp, except on lower heat and a little longer cooking time ....
You can pick up a steamer quite cheap at wal mart .... It's a big pot with a strainer-type insert and a top ...I use mine to steam brocolli also ...
rice (preferrably leftovers from the day before)
ground meat (marinated in some soy sauce and alcohol of some sort) or ham/spam
Make some scrambled eggs, but leave them kind of runny. Cut them into bite sized chunks and set aside.
Stir fry the meat, and set aside.
Stir fry the green onions, and then add the rice. When the rice is halfway warm add the meat and eggs. salt to taste.
Personally, I like some peas in mine.
I usually add, pan fry bacon chopped into bits, or cha-sui a kind of Chinese roast pork cut up into small pieces. Heck, I've even used frankfurters.
Sesame seed oil, just a teaspoon or so for flavoring in like 3 or 4 cups of fried rice, it used this like salt & pepper, and not like cooking oil.
recipe for "Fly Lice"
I would recommend you use rice that has been cooked the night before and left in the refrigerator over nite.
no special rice steamer necessary, I cook a pot of rice everyday with a regular 2 quart pot, just make sure you have the right amount of water, about 3/4" of an inch of water should be above the rice before cooking, a quick way to check is your fingers should be under water if you place you hand on top.
*chopped green onions
*couple of eggs
*stir fried chicken pieces
*peas & carrots
I usually cook fried rice in a big "WOK" it works the best, I never use butter.
