Vamp's Fried Rice Recipe

Here is a fun and tasty way to use up your leftover white rice and meat bits. I created this recipe when thinking up what to do with my leftover foods. You can add or leave out what you don't want to use. You can add vegies to this, I didn't but you can easily add mushrooms, bean sprouts, sweet peppers etc. Enjoy!

Vamp's Fried Rice Recipe

Left over cold white rice (3 to 4 cups)
Sliced or diced ham or left over pork (1 cup or so)
Hand full or so fine egg noodles
Scrambled eggs about 2 to 3 eggs
Soy Sauce
Garlic Powder
Cayenne Pepper
Olive oil

In a wok or 12 inch skillet put about 3 or 4 tablespoons of olive oil, heat it up and add your diced onions with pork or ham bits and brown.
When almost brown add a handful or so of egg noodles (very fine thin type) and brown those along with the onions and pork.

When your onion pork noodle mixture is almost brown add your cold rice and mix well, add a dash or to taste pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and a few table spoons of soy sauce & more olive oil, mix well keep browning rice. Stove temp should be medium high about now to brown the rice up. Keep stirring and mixing, do not leave skillet at this point. In another small skillet make your scrambled eggs.

Add more olive oil if your rice is sticking and needs to brown more. When your eggs are scrambled add to your rice mixture and mix well again and keep browning your rice. When rice looks about the color you like you will need to add just a bit of water to the mixture about 1/8 cup or less...this is to make steam and cook up your egg noodles so they are softer or you will have crunchy noodles instead. Cover rice and lower heat to low and let it simmer for about 10 minutes or until the egg noodles are soft, should not take long. Add more spices if need be stir before serving and wallah excellent fried rice.

Serve this fried rice with string beans or a tossed salad on the side and any type of meat dish you wish or if you do not want any other meat dish by itself will be fabulous.
