DIRECTIONS

  • In a 6-quart nonstick wok or 6-quart Le Creuset pot, heat the wok/pot over medium-high heat, and then heat oil until glistening.
  • Add 1st bowl (onion, carrots, white parts of scallions), and stir-fry over medium-high heat until softened, about 4 minutes.
  • Add 2nd bowl (mushrooms, garlic, ginger) and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add soy sauce (and optional dry sherry) and 3rd (large) bowl (rice, chicken, pork). Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes.
  • Add 4th bowl (green parts of scallions, peas), and mix.
  • Push the fried rice to the outer edge of the wok or pot to create a well. Pour the slightly beaten eggs into the well, and cook, stirring gently, until nearly set.
  • Toss rice and eggs together. Portion fried rice in bowls and garnish with the reserved 1 tablespoon of scallion greens. Serve.
