This is a recipe I found from a blog called "Iowa Girl Eats". I changed it up a bit after reading some other recipes for fried rice. This was a quick fix meal that we really enjoyed.
- 2 C. leftover prepared rice
- ¼ lb. of salami or ham, sliced and cut into squares
- 2/3 C. frozen mixed vegetables
- 2 shallots or ¼ of an onion, chopped
- ½ C. celery, chopped
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 egg
- 3 t. sesame oil, divided
- 2 T. soy sauce
- 2 T. fish sauce
- Whisk egg with 1 t. of sesame oil in a small dish then set aside.
- Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add salami or ham and then stir fry until it starts to brown, about 2 minutes.
- Heat remaining teaspoon oil in the wok and then add frozen mixed vegetables, shallots, celery, and green onions. Stir fry until tender, about 2 minutes.
- Add garlic and cook for 30 more seconds.
- Push vegetables to the side of the wok then add egg and sesame oil mixture into the center and scramble.
- Add the rice, fish sauce, and soy sauce to wok then toss well to combine. Cook for 2 minutes until all the ingredients are hot.
Tips and Tricks:
- I don’t use a frozen vegetable mix for this recipe because I don’t like it. I use 1/3 C. of frozen lima beans and 1/3 C. of frozen corn.
- I know the salami sounds crazy, but I found a recipe which called for a Chinese sausage that was described and sounds a lot like salami. I tried using what I had, salami, and the fried rice had a GREAT flavor.
