Yang Zhou Fried Rice with Ham 楊洲炒飯

Yang Zhou Chao Fan is a popular Chinese fried rice dish in most of the Chinese restaurants around the world.  The ingredients used may vary, which includes: cooked rice, barbecued pork, shrimp, eggs, peas, carrots, spring onion and so on.  In my case, I used ham instead of barbecued pork.

I have to say this is one dish that I would never order in a overseas restaurant.  Simply because it's easy to cook and I think we Chinese make fried rice like making coffee at home.  Don't you agree?  ;-p

400g cooked rice
 20g carrot, finely diced
100g ham, finely diced
 80g green peas
2 medium eggs, lightly beaten
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 sprig spring onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp cooking oil
salt and white pepper, to taste
Serves 2

1.  Heat cooking oil in a pan or wok on medium-high heat, add in garlic and stir until brown. Pour in the egg and scramble slightly, pour in the rice and carrot when the egg is 40% cooked.

2.  Stir the rice well for half a minute, add soy sauce, ham, green peas and cook until all is hot and coated evenly with soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Add in spring onion, turn off heat immediately. Mix well before dish out.

3.  Serve with other Asian dishes.
