Stir Fried Rice with Egg, Mushrooms and Green Peas

I’ve yet to find a good recipe for fried rice. There’s this place in Boise, Idaho (Confucius) that made the best chicken fried rice. My mom used to take me there after a hard day of shopping for some us time. I still get hankering for it. I saw this recipe made on TLC and thought it looked closer then the other methods I’d seen. I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks good! Yet another recipe to put on my To Make list!

 

Stir Fried Rice with Egg, Mushrooms and Green Peas
From Take Home Chef on TLC Episode 170
Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 3/4 cups/625 ml water
  • 1 1/2 cups/300 g uncooked long grain white rice, rinsed, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon/1.5 g salt
  • 6 tablespoons/90 ml vegetable oil
  • 8 ounces/225 g assorted mushrooms (such as oyster and stemmed shiitake), coarsely chopped
  • 2 large eggs, beaten to blend
  • 4 small carrots (about 4 ounces/115 g total), peeled and finely diced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup/100 g frozen petite green peas
  • 3/4 cup/70 g thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup/85 ml reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon/5 ml toasted sesame oil

Method:

Combine the water, rice, and 1/4 teaspoon/1.5 g of salt in a rice cooker and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer the steamed rice to a baking sheet to cool to room temperature. Heat 2 tablespoons/30 ml of vegetable oil in a large wok over medium to high heat.

Add the mushrooms and sauté for 4 minutes or until tender. Transfer the mushrooms to a plate and set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon/15 ml of vegetable oil in the wok over medium to high heat. Add the egg and stir with a fork for about 30 seconds or until just cooked.

Remove the egg from the wok and allow to cool. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons/45 ml of vegetable oil in the wok over medium to high heat. Add the carrots to the wok and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add the cooled rice and stir fry for 2 minutes or until heated through.

Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the peas then the mushrooms and eggs. Stir in ¾ of the green onions. Add the soy sauce and sesame oil and continue to stir fry for a further 1 minute.

Transfer the rice to a platter and sprinkle with the remaining green onions. Serve as an accompaniment to the Orange Chicken with Carrots and Celery.

    I think I watched this same episode yesterday while doing laundry at my parents house! And yes, the fried rice did look good – better than most recipes. I wanted to try it too.
