Fried Rice...from leftovers

...Leftovers, my Maternal Grandfather used to call them RE-RUNS.

This is a recipe for fried rice in which I use the leftover steamed rice, leftover protein (usually meat or chicken) and whatever vegetables are around. Traditional fried rice has no garlic and no onion and also the egg would be fried into the rice after a light beating. This is how we do it in my house - you can change it and make it yours.

Fried Rice Reruns Recipe

4 cloves garlic
1/2 onion
large pinch red onion flake
2 eggs scrambled (set aside)
2 green onions chopped
leftover meat, spam or ham
2 tbsp soysauce (optional)
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup carrots
2 tbsp oil

Chop Green onion (set aside
Chop Garlic
Chop regular onion

Heat wok or large saute pan.
In a separate pan scramble eggs, once cooked top with green onion and loose chop with spatula. Turn off heat and leave aside.

Chop meat or chicken. In this recipe I also had some leftover ground beef from canning so I threw it in there.

Reconstitute your dried veggies, set aside frozen, OR chop fresh.

Move spatula through rice whether it's cold or leftover.

Saute garlic until golden brown with chili flakes.
Keep the temperature as hot as you can stand it and keep it moving.

Saute onions until soft

Add meat, once fully sauteed add your soysauce and or seasoning of choice (maybe curry or oyster sauce or even teriyaki sauce)

Add Rice and a bit of pepper if you like, top with veggies. Continue Mixing and Stirring.

Once the meat and rice are fully incorporated top with the egg/green onion mix. I add the eggs last so they are not discolored...Mix thoroughly and turn off heat.

That's it. You can do it.

I think this is a good lunch with a light salad on the side. This is also something you can make from your preps as long as you have some dehydrated veggies. It is also a way to make sure that none of the meats you cook are wasted. If you put chicken, beef, pork (ham) and shrimp - HEY that's house special fried rice. HAHA.

Let's review.
