An authentic Chinese fried rice that uses leftover ham. Shrimp or other ingredients can also be added. It can be prepared with or without soy sauce.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1The rice should be smoothed out to get rid of any lumps.
- 2Day old, cold rice works best.
- 3If using eggs (recommended), lightly beat them with a pinch of salt.
- 4Heat a little oil in your wok, pour eggs in and tilt the wok back and forth to spread evenly.
- 5Lift the edges to let the uncooked portion come in contact with the hot pan so it cooks evenly.
- 6After the eggs set up a little, lightly scramble them so you have medium small pieces.
- 7Remove eggs to a bowl.
- 8Wipe out wok.
- 9If adding raw shrimp, heat a little more oil and stir fry them to just cook.
- 10Remove to a bowl.
- 11Wipe out wok again.
- 12Heat a little more oil.
- 13Add the onions& stir fry until they start to darken.
- 14Stir in the rice, breaking up any lumps you missed.
- 15Drizzle a little dry sherry down the sides of the wok.
- 16(The surface of the wok should be slick with oil. If too dry looking, drizzle a little more oil down the sides of the wok).
- 17If you want the rice to look brown, drizzle in a little light soy sauce.
- 18Stir in all of the other ingredients and season to taste with salt and white pepper.
- 19Continue to stir and cook until heated through.
