5cupscooked ricechilled completely - old leftovers is the best ( I prefer Jasmine rice)
1-2cupschopped meat of your choicechicken, ham, pork, whatever!
1cupcooked vegetables of your choice
green onions to top
shredded cheeseto top
In a large, over-sized skillet, fry the bacon on medium-high heat until it reaches desired doneness. We like ours tender-crisp in rice.
Add in the garlic and fry for 1-2 minutes.
Add in the sesame oil, soy sauce and oyster sauce. ( you can mix in more at the end, so start at 2 tbsp of each. I prefer 2 tbsp soy and 4 tbsp Oyster sauce, but feel free to mix it up to your liking!). Stir until all the sauces and bacon mix are combined.
Add in the rice and fry until it crisps up how you like it.
Stir in the meat and vegetables of your choice. If you need to cook the meat, make a well in the center and cook the meat on the bare pan until done, then mix in. It's better to pre-cook whatever meat you use, though!
Push the rice to the side or make a well. Add in the eggs and stir fry in that well until scrambled. Once done, mix the egg into the rice mixture.
Fry the rice some more, taste and see if you want to add more soy or oyster. Mine always needs more oyster sauce, it gives it the most fabulous flavour ever!
Serve up in bowls and let the family top with green onions and cheese. Trust me, the cheese takes this OVER THE TOP!
You can use any leftovers that you can dream of when it comes to meat and vegetables.
Don't skip the oyster sauce, it is literally what makes this fried rice the best ever!
Older rice is SO much better than fresh! If you have to, throw the rice in your fridge to cool it completely and uncovered! The secret is to dry the rice out a bit, just like old rice!
