Recipe by Kana K.
Since this is a combination of American Chinese takeout and the ingredients of a Western/Denver Omelette, the name seems to work. NOTE: When I make this, I never measure anything, having it come out a little different each time, is what makes it fun. Feel free to modify this according to your own tastes.
- 2 cups rice, cold, pre-cooked
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil, I use peanut, doesn't burn at high heat
- 1⁄8 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1⁄4 cup ham steak, diced
- 1⁄4 cup sweet onion, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
- 1⁄2 green onion, for garnish
- 1 -2 egg, to taste
- 1 -2 tablespoon light soy sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper, to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar, to taste
Directions See How It's Made
- To prepare cooked rice, wet your fingers and break it up in the bowl. Preheat a large skillet or wok to medium to high heat. Add some cooking oil in the bottom. Add the egg and fry until easy, soft,cook. Remove from pan and set aside. I usually will cook a very small omelette, and chop it up right before I add it at the end.
- Add a touch more oil. Add onion and peppers and fry until tender.
- Remove onions and peppers to a separate bowl or push to the side, add diced ham and stir fry for about 30 seconds.
- Add oil, add rice and stir fry making sure to constantly chop and move rice around so the grains separate, lumps are what we are fighting people ;-) 'Bout 3-5 minutes depending on the heat.
- When rice is almost done, add the ham, peppers and onion and give it a toss/stir, chop up the egg and add that too. To season remove from heat to avoid overcooking. Add the salt, pepper, sugar and lastly a healthy splash of light soy sauce and a drop of Sesame oil (use a very light hand, too much Sesame oil ruins dishes), Cook for an additional 40 seconds and it's eatin' time!
