Sun Ya Fried Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This recipe is from my favorite cookbook, Madame Wong's Long-Life Chinese Cooking, with a few changes by me. The name comes from the Sun Ya restaurant in Shanghai where a chef developed this recipe. This is a very flexible recipe - you can use just about any leftover meat in this, though I've listed just shrimp, chicken and pork. I made this with leftover duck meat once and it was delicious!
