Traditional Mandarin Fried Rice

Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 eggs, beaten lightly
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 la chang (Chinese sausage), cut into 1/8-inch dice, or 4 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 bunch scallions, white and green parts chopped and reserved separately
  • 5 cups cold cooked rice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • Salt, if needed
Directions
  • Heat a wok or large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the oil and swirl to coat the pan. When the oil shimmers, add the eggs, which will puff up. Allow to set, about 5 seconds, and using a wok spatula or similar tool, push the sides of the egg mass toward the center to allow uncooked egg to reach the pan and solidify. Flip the mass, allow it to set, about 5 seconds, and slide it onto a dish; do not overcook. With the edge of the spatula, break the eggs into small pieces. Set aside. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of the oil to the wok and swirl to coat the pan. When the oil shimmers, add the garlic and ginger and stir fry until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the la chang, the white parts of the scallions and the rice and toss thoroughly until heated through. Add the soy sauce, pepper and reserved eggs and toss. Correct the seasonings, adding the salt if necessary, transfer to a platter, and garnish with the scallion greens. Serve immediately.
