Easy Ham Fried Rice

This is going to be one of the easiest dishes to make. Last night, I decided to make Ham Fried Rice, I normally make it with pork the way my Mother made it but was never like the restaurants. Our Dad, rest his soul would take us once in a while to San Fransico, those dishes just could not be beaten.  I was spoiled in that way.

Thanks to Theantiramen Blog I found a recipe for Chicken Fried rice that came out fairly good and one of the tricks was to cook the rice and let it get cold before using it.  That was a great tip.  I have tried this dish four times so far and I am getting closer. I have tried it with enriched long grain white rice that was washed prior to using and I also tried Minute Rice. That’s right! Minute Rice works like a champ.

Basic ingredients:
1 cup Minute Rice
1 cup water
Follow directions and let cool, ( I did find out with the minute Rice an hour in the fridge works well).

Ham cut into bite size pieces (just enough that is needed).
Soy Sauce
Garlic Salt
Pepper ( White Pepper is suggested)
Three large Grade A eggs

Instructions:
First cook the rice and let it cool.
While the rice is cooling, grab some ham and cut into bite-size pieces and store in fridge until needed.

When your ready and the rice has cooled for at least an hour, crack and scramble the three eggs and set aside, get a large frying pan, set burner to medium and coat with a small amount of Vegetable oil -not much.
Add the ham to pan and stir so ham will not burn, next add the rice and mix together.
For the eggs, I have tried it both ways, poured directly on the rice and ham, or scrambled first then added the eggs to the larger frying pan. Either way works. Once the eggs are added, add two dashes of garlic salt, two to three dashes of the pepper, mix together then add the soy sauce a little bit at a time until you get a light brown color. You don’t want to use too much of the soy sauce because it is a salty beast.

Options: Peas, Carrots, Bamboo shoots
Top with Green onions if you have them.

Ham Fried Rice

Candy

Thank you cards, cats, cats playingThe last post I wrote July 1993, was a tough one for me, but I got through it. I appreciate all that have liked and left me heart warming comments on that post and sharing their memories too, as well as tweeted and shared via other mediums (Please feel free to continue the sharing). I encourage that! Again, I appreciate you all.

Today I thought I would bring some levity back and another recipe that is so simple a Monkey can do it.

Ask yourself, what kid doesn’t want candy when offered candy.

One could say my Dad had a sense of humor or trickery within him. I think I was just plain naive as a young child.

Dad was cooking something in the kitchen one day when we kids were little, we asked what was that? He said, CANDY!

We go CANDY! We want candy!

You think that I being the eldest would have caught on by now. The Hershey candy bar experience that was not Hershey at all but Exlax wrapped up in a Hershey wrapper should have stuck with me. But, I heard CANDY, all other brain functions are out the window.

On to the photos, of the so called CANDY.

Corn, yellow corn, tortillias
Step1: Three Yellow Corn Tortillas. I used Mission Brand.
Step 2" Cut into bite size pieces.
Step 2″ Cut into bite size pieces.
Corn Tortillas, Tortillas, Yellow corn
Step 3: Heat about a capful or less of vegetable oil in a pan and add the cut up Corn tortillas. Medium heat
Step 4: Stir/flip often we only want to slightly brown and crisp the Corn tortillas.
Step 4: Stir/flip often we only want to slightly brown and crisp the Corn tortillas.
Eggs, medium grade A eggs, Large eggs
Step 5: Add one egg
corn tortillas and eggs
Step 6: Add a little table salt and enjoy. One thought I had was to add some salsa to this, just a pinch.

When I was married, I made this so called CANDY for my brother in-law at the time. What better way to attempt to welcome him. He took one look at it and eyes rolled and his nose became a snob-it was very obvious.

Later on today/evening, once I get my photos to the desktop and cropped, I will show another recipe for Beef Enchilada with Red enchilada sauce. Sauce homemade not canned.

Why did I use that Feature photo on top? It has nothing to do with food!

1: I am fond of the show the “IT Crowd” a shame it only had a four year run.

2. If you look at my menu above where you see the About Me, I have put a PC Help Desk tab/page there. Right now it says “Under Construction” So, I will be working on that page for a while before I publish it.
