Directions

Prepare the Rice The most important tip in making fried rice is to use rice that has been previously cooked. Using previously cooked rice helps keep the dish from turning out wet or mushy. While you can use rice that has been cooked the night before, 2 or 3-day old rice is even better. Gently rub the rice between your finger to break up any clumps (this will help the rice cook more evenly). In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs with a fork or chopsticks until they are frothy. Scramble the Eggs Heat a frying pan or wok on medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons oil, swirling so that the bottom of the pan is coated. When the oil is hot, reduce the heat to medium and add the eggs. Cook the eggs, stirring, until they are lightly scrambled but not too dry. Remove the eggs and clean out the pan. Heat a frying pan or wok on medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons oil, swirling so that the bottom of the pan is coated. When the oil is hot, reduce the heat to medium and add the eggs. Cook the eggs, stirring, until they are lightly scrambled but not too dry. Remove the eggs and clean out the pan. Cook the Rice Add 1 tablespoon oil, swirling so that the bottom of the pan is coated. Add the rice. Stir-fry for 2 - 3 minutes, until the rice is heated through. Add the Seasonings Stir in the soy sauce or oyster sauce as desired. Note: Traditionally, the Chinese do not add soy sauce to rice. If you like, you can serve the dish plain, without the soy or oyster sauce. Another option is to add a small amount (1/2 - 1 teaspoon) of XO sauce or thick soy sauce, or to use 2 - 3 teaspoons of dark soy sauce - these will give the rice a darker color. Putting it all Together When the rice is heated through, add the scrambled egg back into the pan. Add the green onion. Stir-fry to heat everything through.
