How to Make Fried Rice
In honor of President’s Day, Shorty and I decided to stimulate the economy and buy some dinner.
We had gone out to the Palm Springs desert to get away for a few days, relax in the sun and frolic by the pool.
(editors note, I do not know why I used the word frolic in he above sentence)
Anyway, when we got here, the pool didn’t work.
Then it started to rain.
So, while we still were on vacation, we mostly caught up on episodes of 24 and got plenty of rest.
Anyway, tonight I was in the mood for some Chinese food and Shorty decided to go pick some up while I was on a 2 hour conference call.
We got some Chicken Fried Rice, Egg Drop Soup and Mongolian Beef and Broccoli.
Not sure what exactly was Mongolian about it, but it was good none the less.
Then, we sat and watched Jack Bauer and the gang try and save America from evil.
It was awesome.
Finally, as the night edges to a close, we are curled up by the fire, watching the movie “Swing Vote,” which kind of lost it’s meaning since it is after the election.
Anyway, for those who got this far reading, here is what you have been waiting for.
How to make Fried Rice?
Yup, this is the Fat Jewish Guy fried rice recipe.
* 1 – 2 green onions, as desired
* 2 large eggs
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 4 tablespoons oil for stir-frying, or as needed
* 4 cups cold cooked rice
* 1 – 2 tablespoons soy sauce.
Wash and finely chop the green onion.
Beat the eggs with the salt and pepper.
Heat a wok or frying pan and add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the eggs. Cook, stirring, until they are lightly scrambled but not too dry. Remove the eggs and clean out the pan.
Add 2 tablespoons oil. Add the rice. Stir-fry for a few minutes, using chopsticks or a wooden spoon to break it apart. Stir in the soy sauce.
When the rice is heated through, add the scrambled egg back into the pan. Mix thoroughly. Stir in the green onion. Serve hot.
