Last year I had to go for two root canals procedure. It was not as bad as I thought it would be but still… I hate dentists. I hate the needle, the drill and the pain.
I hate dentists!
A few days ago, I had to see my dentist for my regular check up. Thank God there’s nothing to extract, no filling needed and no procedure to go through. Came back from the appointment and feeling hungry as I only had a slice of toast and a cup of coffee for breakfast.
Good thing I have some left over rice from last night dinner and fried rice was my first option.I just love fried rice because it’s a quick and easy meal to fix. You can basically throw in anything you have or you want. And I want garlic. A lot of garlic!
For this recipe, you’ll need…
- 1 cup of cooked rice
- sliced beef
- 1 egg
- 2 cloves of garlic
- spring onions
- sliced bell peppers (I normally sliced and freezes them so that they wont go bad before I can use them)
- 2 tablespoon light soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seed oil
- 2 tablespoon of vegetable oil or whatever oil you have
- white pepper
- salt to taste
First chop the garlic and the bell peppers. Roughly slice the spring onions. I bought this Tri Tip slices from the grocer and I find a bit big for this recipe so sliced them into thin strips.
Heat up the wok and when it’s hot enough throw in the chopped garlic. Sauté it for about 1 minute. Then, thrown in the beef strips stir fry for about 1 minute.
Throw in the chopped bell peppers and stir fry it for another 30 seconds. Chuck in the rice and give it a stir. Add the light soy sauce and stir fry it for one minute.
A lot of mixing and stirring in this recipe 😐
Add in the toasted sesame seed oil, salt and white pepper. Mix and stir fry….. again. Push the rice aside (see pic) crack the egg into the other side and leave for about 10 seconds so it begins to set. Then, briskly swirl around the egg to break it up and then toss around with the rice. Stir fry for another minute and turn off the stove.
Lastly, throw in the spring onions and give it a one last good stir (I swear this is the last one).
I served it with gabillions of garlic chips……
and ate with a happy face 🙂
