I love fried rice. But I am a little picky about it. It can’t have too much non-rice foodstuff like veggie, meat etc. You might as well call it Fried Other Stuff. It can’t be too oily either. Not only does it make my stomach feel like it’s being covered with a thick layer of gooey gunk, it leaves me with a lot of grease to clean off in the kitchen. So if you want something done right, you’ve gotta do it yourself. And this is another one of my concoctions. It was one day inspired by my ravenous stomach in severe need of sustenance because I was busy and forgot to eat.
This recipe uses the turkey mince from another post. Like I said then, very versatile! So here goes!
Ingredients (serves 2)
1/2 red onion, diced
Sliced french beans
Turkey mince from previous post
1 cup raw rice, then cook it (I just used some leftovers)
1 tbsp sesame oil
Sauce for frying:
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp Kikoman soy sauce
Chilli oil (optional)
- Dice and slice the red onion and french beans.
- Heat a non-stick pan and put in sesame oil. Fry the onions first until slightly brownish, then add in french beans.
- When beans appear half cooked, add in about two heaped tablespoons of the raw turkey mince preparation.
- Then push everything in the pan to one side and crack in two eggs (I don’t like my eggs clumping on everything else and this is the easy way). Drizzle some soy sauce onto the eggs and fry till cooked.
- Finally, add in the rice and the various sauces (chilli oil if you like it spicy). Fry and mix everything well.
- Garnish with chopped spring onions if you wish, and enjoy eating!
Non oily, non excessive-other-stuff and non egg-clumping-to-other-stuff fried rice.
Just the way I like it.
Of course, you could also add in grated carrots and diced capsicums for more colour and nutritional value.
