My love for beef fried rice is inspired by my love for Ron of Japan. So whenever we go, my sister and I study the ingredients and method since it's one of those cook-in-front-of-you-restaurants. I have tried and failed many times to match the recipe and create a batch that tastes just as good as ROJ's BUT this time, this blessed time, I finally finally think I GOT it! So good and so worth the many trials.
- 2 cups white rice
- 2 eggs
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 large white onion, minced
- salt and pepper
- vegetable oil (not quite sure how much)
- about 6 Tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 green onion, chopped, for garnish (optional)
- Cook rice and cool in fridge for at least a few hours before using (very important)
- Combine onion and ground beef, mashing together with hands. Add rice and fully combine. Season with a teaspoon or so of salt and a little pepper.
- Fry eggs in small saute pan, breaking up the yolk a little as it cooks. Set aside.
- Add a few tablespoons veggie oil, heat and add 1/3 of rice mix. Season with salt. Cook covered on med-high heat for about 5 minutes, allowing meat to brown. Stir and cook covered again about 5 minutes.
- Season with salt, a few tablespoons soy sauce, stir and allow to cook for another 5 minutes or until meat is cooked and rice starts to get a bit crispy.
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 with the other 2 parts of the rice mix.
- Add egg and garnish with green onion.
