Fried Rice With Prawns, Bacon And Roast Beef

Dear old J has recently (finally) moved out from home. Determined not to survive on takeaways and canned soup he decided to venture into the kitchen and I have been giving him regular cooking lesson since.

Fried rice was the very first dish I learnt so it is only fitting to give a kitchen novice and a fried rice lover his first lesson on how to make the perfect fried rice. I am proud to say he now makes very good fried rice after a few trials and errors on his own.

I won't go on about the technical side of fried rice making but just to show you the result of our first cooking lesson.

recipe from the tummies' kitchen
serves 2 as a one dish meal
you'll need;
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 rash of bacon, rind removed and chut into 1 x 3 cm pieces
6 prawns, shelled and roughly chopped
a small piece of smoked beef, cut into small pieces
a handful of snow peas, sliced
a small wedge of lettuce, sliced
2 spring onions, chopped
2 eggs lightly beaten
3 cups of cold cooked rice
2 tbs of oyster sauce
2 tbs of light soy
dash of white pepper
dash of sesame oil

Prepare the ingredients and have them next to the stove.

Heat a wok until smoking then saute garlic with a little oil, add bacon and prawns and cook on high heat for 30 seconds. Push the mixture to aside, add a little more oil and crack in the eggs, scramble the eggs lightly and mix everything together.

Add roast beef and rice, mix well and continue to cook on high heat for a minute.

Season with oyster sauce, soy, pepper and sesame oil and continue to cook for a further minute. Finally add in the snow peas, lettuce and spring onion and cook until vegetables are slightly wilted.

Serve with some sliced chili or some homemade chili sauce on the side.

    นอกจากนี้ยังมีตำนานเล่าขานกันทั่วหมู่บ้านว่าเมื่อถึงเวลาที่เหมาะสม นกฟีนิกซ์จะแตกออกจากเปลือกหยกสว่างเป็นไฟ
    แล้วบินออกไปเต้นรำบนท้องฟ้า ในขณะที่เกล็ดของนกฟีนิกซ์ค่อย ๆ ตกลงมาจากด้านบนผู้พิทักษ์จะคว้าโอกาสชั่วชีวิตเพื่อรวบรวมเกล็ด
    โดยตาชั่งจะแปรสภาพเกล็ดเป็นหยกเพื่อมอบเป็นรางวัลให้แก่ “ผู้พิทักษ์ฟีนิกซ์”
