Ham Fried Rice

Ever wonder what to do with all your leftover ham from Easter or Christmas? Well, fried rice is one of the easiest ham leftover recipes you can make! If you've used up all that ham, it's no problem. Try adding cubed Chinese BBQ pork, Chinese sausage or even hot dogs, and you'll still have a mighty tasty dish.

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 30 min

Ingredients
  • 2 cups long grain rice (uncooked)
  • 1/2 cup cubed ham
  • 1/2 cup cooked shrimp
  • 3 tablespoons peanut or olive oil
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup cooked green peas
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons MSG (optional)
Instructions
  1. Steam rice according to package directions.  Let cool and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight).
     
  2. Heat the wok.
     
  3. Fry the eggs in about 1 tablespoon of the oil. Set the cooked egg aside.
     
  4. Add remaining oil to the wok and add the rice gradually by breaking it apart with your hands or a fork so it is unclumped.  Lower heat and fry about 5 minutes.
     
  5. Add ham, shrimp, peas and chopped cooked eggs.
     
  6. Toss and fry a couple of minute, then add soy sauce and MSG (if using). 
     
  7. Toss and serve.
Notes
  • Variations:   Use 2 teaspoons of salt or patis (fish sauce) instead of soy sauce for a "white" rice dish.  Include crushed garlic, yellow or green onions before adding rice.  You can throw almost any leftover in for a change.  This recipe makes at least 4 large servings as a side dish.
