Fried Rice

Tung's fried rice recipe, complete with amateur photography

4-5 cups Cold Jasmine Rice (cooked rice that has been cooled in fridge for a few hours - this keeps it from being mushy!)
3-4 Eggs
2-3 Cloves Minced Garlic
2-3 tbs Butter
16 oz Frozen Mixed Vegetables
3/4 lb Honey Ham, or center cut ham, cut into chunks
1-2 tbs peanut or vegetable oil - for frying
2-3 tbs Sesame Oil - I use Kyoto - for flavor
Salt and Pepper

Have your lovely assistant pick the frozen green beans out of the bag of mixed vegetables because frozen green beans are just no good.

Scramble the eggs in the wok...not completely, a little under done so they don't over cook when you throw them back in later...take them out.

Season rice with some salt and pepper . Throw the rice into the wok on medium high heat with vegetable oil.   Add butter, and garlic, stir for 4-5 minutes until rice is warm and broken up. Rice should not burn if you keep stirring.
Throw in the mixed vegetables...mix together with a folding motion to not smash the vegetables.
Add a few tablespoons of sesame oil, it's for flavor not frying.
Add in ham, mix together, heat through.
Last, throw back in the eggs, mix to combine for a minute and you're done!

We put on soy sauce when we eat it...if you have an Asian store Golden Mountain soy sauce is the best :)
