Aromatic Jasmine Fried Rice

Aromatic Jasmine Fried Rice

Absolutely love this fried rice, which can be either a main or side dish (see "variation" below for side dish).

1/4 cup coconut oil, olive oil, or bacon drippings (from nitrite and nitrate free, uncured bacon)
3 eggs, beaten
4 cups cooked Soft and Savory Brown Rice (this recipe uses Jasmine brown rice)
1 cup leftover pork, beef or chicken, diced
5 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup frozen peas and carrot mix
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon real, unprocessed salt (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, (or to taste)

Directions: Preheat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet (seasoned cast iron preferably). When oil is shimmering (but never smoking), add the eggs and scramble till almost set (they should still look slightly wet). Remove eggs to a plate and keep warm.

Add the 3 tablespoons of oil remaining to the skillet. Heat as above and add the 4 cups of rice. Brown slightly, stirring constantly until hot. Add pork, beef or chicken, green onions, peas and carrots, parsley, ginger and garlic. Stir over medium heat till peas and carrots are just heated (do not overheat). Add sesame oil, soy sauce, scrambled eggs, salt and pepper and heat through . Makes 4 servings.

Variation: Leave out the meat for a scrumptious side dish.

Jesus Christ has been my Savior since 1975. Robert, the wonderful man that God provided to love me has been my husband for 48 of those years. We have five grown children, with children of their own. Of course, that means that we have grandchildren - ten to be exact, and nine great-grandchildren with another one on the way. I have been a stay-at-home mom, sometimes helping to supplement the income from within the home. Now I am a stay-at-home grandmother. Jesus Christ has been my guide and keeper and I have found, in all the trials, heartbreaks and good times that He just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter as the years roll by. My future is secure and I look forward to eternity in the presence of my Creator, Redeemer and King.
