Fried Rice With Ham
Fried rice is perfect for busy weeknights, or when you're looking for a creative way to serve leftovers. Cooked chicken or turkey can be used in place of ham.
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 teaspoons soy sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
8 ounces cooked ham
1 green onion, washed
6 tablespoons oil for frying, or as needed
1/2 cup peas, fresh, canned or frozen
4 cups cold cooked rice
Lightly beat the eggs. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon each of the oyster sauce and soy sauce. Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Peel and dice the onion. Dice the ham and green onion.
Heat a wok or frying pan on medium-high to high heat. When the oil is hot, add 2 tablespoons oil. Add the eggs. Scramble lightly and remove from the pan. Clean out the pan.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in the pan or wok. When the oil is hot, add the onion. Stir-fry briefly, then add the ham and the green peas. Stir-fry and remove from the pan. Clean out the pan.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in the wok. Reduce the heat to medium and add the rice, stirring with chopsticks to break up the clumps. Stir in the remainder of the soy sauce and oyster sauce. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
Add the cooked meat and vegetables back into the pan. Stir in the scrambled egg. Heat through and stir in the green onion. Serve hot.
