Recipes: Beef Fried Rice

In my family, fried rice is traditionally a dish you prepare when you have lots of left-over bits that you don’t know what to do with. It’s a dish you prepare on the fly with minimal thought given to it. This particular fried rice dish, however, was entirely intentional right down to the rice prepared.

Beef fried rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 rice bowls of rice cooked in beef stock (Campbell’s Real Stock works just fine)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 100g of bean sprouts
  • 100g of baby spinach leaves
  • 100g of white mushrooms, sliced
  • 200g of beef, sliced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ground garlic
  • dash pepper
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • dash of red wine

Method:

  • In a bowl, add cooked rice with pepper, garlic, ginger and soy sauce. Mix well. Set aside.
  • Stir fry the beef and add red wine. Add bean sprouts, spinach and mushrooms. Drain the liquid.
  • Add a little more oil and add in the egg.
  • Once the egg is mostly cooked, stir in the rice. Cook a little longer until everything is thoroughly mixed.
  • Remove from heat and serve.

How did it turn out? Very well. Even DH couldn’t complain about this one…
