Leftover Ham Fried Rice
  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 5 eggs, scrambled
  • 3 cups diced cooked ham
  • 1 cup grated or chopped carrots
  • 4 diced green onions
  • 2 cups diced cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon garlic paste (or a couple cloves minced garlic)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • * optional flavor to add 1-2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • *add chili oil or red pepper flakes is you want to spice it up.
  1. Rice should be cold. If you have just made the rice, place it on a baking sheet and put it in the fridge to chill it quickly.
  2. In a skillet cook scrambled eggs, then remove to add into dish later.
  3. Heat a large skillet, if you don't have a large enough skillet for all the food, do it in batches.
  4. Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil and a tablespoon of sesame oil add in garlic and ginger. Saute in rice to coat with oil and cook until the rice begins to get golden, stir in diced carrot and green onions and cabbage.
  5. Add in ham and stir to combine, add in soy sauce to taste, use a couple tablespoons to start with.
  6. Add in eggs and it's ready to serve. If you want the fried rice spicy, add the flavors you like to the oil in the beginning, that will ensure it gets evenly distributed throughout the dish.
You can find many nice Chinese flavorings in most grocery stores nowadays, take a look you may find a new flavor or spice you like. Chinese chili paste is one I always have on hand and love, sesame oil and sesame seeds are always great to add to Chinese food.
