Prep Ingredients & Coat Rice

  • Cut 1 stalk of spring onion into small pieces.

Make Egg Fried Rice

  • Place Vegetable Oil (2 Tablespoons) into a frying pan. Place on medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add in the sliced Spring Onion pieces.
  • [Optional Step: If you'll add in minced beef, chicken or shrimp... add it in now and stir-fry]
  • Now, add in the rice mixture. Stir-fry it around - and break down any large lumps.
  • [Optional Step: If you have soy sauce and oyster sauce - let's add it now. Move the rice to one side - then add-in a small amount (~1 teaspoon) of each sauce to the empty part of the pan. Let the sauces sizzle in the heat for 10-15 seconds. Then mix it well into the rice.]
  • Finish the fried rice by seasoning with a few pinches of salt. Along with a few cracks of black pepper.
  • Scoop the rice into a small bowl. Then flip it upside-down into a plate!
  • Bon Appetit! Pull out some banchan and enjoy it with the fried rice.
