I think this is the prettiest batch of fried rice I've ever made! It's tasty too! Lil' sis ate the rest of the entire batch.
Fried rice is so quick and simple. As long as you have some leftover rice, some kind of meat (or not if you're vegetarian), a bag of frozen or canned vegetables, and a few eggs, you're set. My mixed veggies included carrots, corn, peas, green beans, and lima beans.
Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage, Mixed Frozen Vegetables, and Eggs
About two to three cups leftover rice (Fresh rice has too much moisture and will make your fried rice soggy. You can put fresh rice in the fridge to cool down and stiffen before using.)
1 cup frozen or canned vegetables
2 links of Chinese sausage (I prefer lap xuong (Chinese sausage) from Quang Tran, Inc.)
2-3 eggs, scrambled or use my scrambled egg omelet technique
oyster sauce or soy sauce, to taste
Slice Chinese sausage and set aside.
Heat up your wok or pan to medium high. Beat two eggs and make a thin omelet. (If you have milk on hand, (because I don't always) add a tablespoon of milk to make the omelet fluffier.) If you're using a wok, swirl it around until a thin omelet is formed like I showed you here. Set aside.
Saute Chinese sausage until the edges start turning golden. Drain the fat.
Add however much of the vegetables you'd like. If they're canned, obviously drain them first. If they're frozen, saute until the ice melts.
Add enough oyster sauce or soy sauce to coat the meat and vegetables. I prefer oyster sauce because it's thicker and more flavorful, but that's up to you. Add rice and toss until thoroughly mixed. If the rice has been sitting in the fridge for several days and is very hard, simply pop it in the microwave for a minute to soften. Add the egg omelet last and chop it up with your spatula or wooden spoon until the egg is in small chunks.
As I said, very pretty and very tasty.
