Gabe loves ham. He doesn't mind the leftovers as long as I don't cut the ham. It seems I don't have a good "eye" and the side aren't even when I cut.
This recipe from That's Some Good Cookin' didn't need even slices. In fact we sort of cooked together on this one.
Gabe diced the ham and onions, as I added the ingredients to the wok, he read the directions to me. It worked beautifully.
He thanked and thanked me for this one. I don't eat rice. Just like coconut, it's on the "not for me" list.
Yes, he loved it and told me to make sure I save it on my blog. I was lucky to get a picture. He went back for second and thirds!
3 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
2 teaspoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 cup yellow onion, small dice
2 medium carrots, diced ( used frozen peas and carrots)
3/4 cup diced ham
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup frozen green peas
2 eggs, lightly beaten
4 cups cold, cooked brown rice ( we were out of white, I had a box of brown rice. I bought it thinking if he's going to eat rice let him eat something healthy)
Cook the rice according to directions. After it's cooked, let it cool down in the refrigerator. I cooked the rice a few hours before I made the dish.
In a small bowl mix the oyster sauce, sesame oil and the hoisin sauce together. Set it aside for later.
Break up the cold rice. Use a spoon or your clean hands to make sure there isn't any clumps.
Heat your wok over high heat and add the peanut oil carefully. Tilt the wok to make sure the oil covers the sides and bottom of the wok.
Once your oil is hot, add the onions and ham ( suppose to add the carrot now but I used frozen so added that later with the peas)
Stir the ham and onions for 2 minutes.
Add the garlic next and stir fry with the ham and onions for another minute.
In the wok goes the peas and carrots and and mix with the ham and onion and garlic mixture until thoroughly combined.
Pour the beaten eggs over the ham and vegetable mixture and stir until the eggs are set.
Add the rice and continue to stir fry until it's heated through
Pour the sauce mixture over the rice and stir fry until the sauce mixture is completely combined and rice is hot
