This fried rice recipe is a simple and quick one. We used some fat we trimmed off a Wagyu steak we had the other night as our source of oil. Typically it’s not an ingredient in fried rice so any neutral oil can be used in its place. Check out the recipe below!
- 2 cups of cold cooked rice
- 1-2 oz beef fat or 2 tbsp neutral oil
- 2 Chinese sausage links slices
- 2 eggs
- 2 garlic cloves minces
- 2 green onion stalks sliced
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp oyster sauce
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat up a pan on high heat. A wok works best but if you do not have a wok, any pan will work. Add a little oil and pour in beat eggs. Swirl that around in the pan so it coats the bottom and let that set for a minute. Then scramble with a spatula. Remove the egg and put in the cut up pieces of beef fat. Render that down for 2-3 minutes. If you are omitting the beef fat, now would be the time to heat up 2 tbsp of oil. Drop the garlic in and cook until fragrant and golden brown. Next you’ll add in the Chinese Sausage. Saute for a minute or two. Add in the rice, soy sauce, oyster sauce and sugar. Cold cooked rice is important. Freshly cooked warm rice will contain too much moisture and you’ll end up with mushy fried rice. Stir everything together. Salt and pepper to taste. Finish up by tossing in the sliced green onions.
Fried rice is a very versatile dish. You can try this with spam or even bacon if Chinese sausage is not your thing or omit it all together and just have some eggy fried rice! Enjoy!
