Beef or Chicken Fried Rice (Asian)
- Ready In:
- 1 lb beef or 1 lb chicken
- 3 cups cooked rice, chilled
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon red chile (crushed)
- 3 -4 dried red chilies
- 1⁄2 cup green onion
- 1⁄2 cup carrot
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 3 eggs
- Slice beef or chicken breast into thin strips.
- For the marinade; combine soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, one minced clove of garlic, and red chili.
- Marinate meat for several hours (over night is best).
- Thinly slice green onions and coarsely chop the green tops. Separate, as they will go in at different times.
- Grate the carrots.
- Slice the dried chilies lengthwise.
- Scramble the eggs lightly in a bowl.
- Heat the oil in a wok or deep pan.
- Fry the eggs until set, remove and slice into strips.
- Add the garlic and sliced green onions (white part) and the sliced red chilies to the hot oil, sauté for a minute or so, then add the marinated meat, reserving the marinade (beef only). If you're cooking chicken, don't reserve the marinade; just add some soy sauce in its place later in the process.
- Stir fry the meat until cooked, and then remove.
- Add the chilled, cooked rice to the hot oil and stir fry until heated thoroughly.
- Add the meat, green onion tops, carrots, egg slices, and some or all of the the reserved marinade (or equal amount of soy sauce if you used chicken, about 1/4 cup).
- Stir fry until all is heated through.
- Serve immediately.
