Yang Chow Fried Rice

This comes from the same site as the Pork Abodo that Arthur turned me on to. And guess what? This is the perfect side dish for the pork and probably any dish that requires rice.

I have tried fried rice before, but never fell in love with one recipe. I think that may have changed. The original recipe calls for barbecue pork and shrimp. I did not add those in since I was already making the pork abode, but you can make this a meal in itself if you add those in.

Saute a teaspoon of ginger and a teaspoon of garlic in a couple tablespoons of oil.
Scramble in two beaten eggs.
When the egg is cooked, add in three cups of rice. The original recipe calls for SIX cups of rice. Do you have any idea what an incredible amount of food six cups of rice is? A lot. Three cups of rice is a lot. You have been warned.
Mix in the soy sauce, sugar and salt. Then add in the peas and green onions and cook for ten minutes.
This is so good and so very, very filling. Did I mention this makes a lot? We had this for dinner three times. The good news is that not one person complained. I am definitely making this with the pork and shrimp added in next time.
