A quick tasty favourite Taiwanese food, and Chinese too, Bacon & Egg Fried Rice 培根蛋炒飯 is prepared by Joanne in this cooking video. This is quite a light fried rice with only a small amount of oil used. The bacon and spring onions with the egg and rice flavours make this a real quick treat. Also we like to serve it with chilli sauce (optional, put it on the table).
The ingredients 食材;
- 1 1/2 bowls of cooked rice
- half an onion
- quarter of a leek
- half a carrot
- 2 eggs
- 4 slices of bacon
- 1 spring onion (scallion)
- salt, pepper (+ chili sauce optional)
- 1 tbsp mirin (Japanese sweet vinegar)
- 1 tbsp cooking oil
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
The method 作法;
- preferably you will have rice that was cooked the day before, use about 1 and a half Chinese bowls of this rice for 2 to 3 people
- chop up all your ingredients that require it in to small pieces, as Joanne says, almost rice size!
- beat the two eggs
- heat up the pan, then add the oil, get this hot then pour the egg in and fry it a bit until it solidifies, push it about, we don’t want an omelette!
- take the egg out and put aside and now fry the bacon pieces until crispy, this will take about 4 or 5 minutes
- now add the carrot and onion, followed by the leek
- add your pepper and salt to taste (remember bacon is salty so not much required)
- add your pre-cooked cold rice in and mix thoroughly
- add some sugar and mirin if you like
- now re-introduce the egg and mix it in (video 8.22s)
- now, finally add in the spring onion
- we like sesame oil so we added 1 tbsp about 30s before removing the pan from the cooker
- also we used chili sauce as a condiment for this rice
