Recipe by TheShields
READY IN: 25mins




  • Preheat large skillet over medium high heat. Add sesame oil.
  • Add sweet onion and carrots. Cook until the carrots are tender, about two minutes.
  • Add the cooked ham (or pork) and combine well.
  • Add the rice, using a wooden spatula or spoon to separate the rice. Cook until the rice is well coated with the oil, adding a splash more oil if needed, but don't over do it or rice will come out oily.
  • Push the rice mixture to the sides of the pan, leaving the center of the pan open to cook the egg.
  • Pour in the beaten egg, cook in the center of the pan until well scrambled. Once the egg is cooked, stir in with the rice mixture.
  • Add the water chestnuts, green onions, peas and sesame seeds. Stir to combine and season to taste with salt.
  • Serve as is, or top with soy sauce, teriyaki sauce or my sons favorite, Recipe #419060, depending on your tastes.
