I have always loved fried rice. Even when I did not like Chinese food, I still loved fried rice. So being able to make it at home and having taste just as good as a restaurant is a nice thing.
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
2 eggs, whisked
2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup frozen peas
3 cloves garlic, minced
black pepper, to taste
4 cups cooked and chilled white rice
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
In a large skillet melt 1/2 tablespoon butter over medium high heat. When butter has melted add eggs and cook until scrambled. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Add 1 tablespoon butter to pan and melt. Add in carrots, onion, peas, garlic and season with black pepper. Sauté for 5 minutes or until the onions and carrots are softened. Increase heat to high and add remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter and stir until melted. Immediately add in the rice, green onions and soy sauce, stirring until well combined. Continue to stir and cook for 3 minutes. Add in the eggs and stir to combine. Add in the sesame oil and stir to combine. Remove from heat and serve.
