How to Make Budget special fried rice
less than 30 mins
10 to 30 mins
- 300g/10½oz long grain rice
- 500g/1lb 2oz frozen mixed vegetables
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
- 6 medium eggs
- 1 medium onion
- 125-250g/4½– 9oz skinless leftover roast pork, cut into small chunks
- 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
- 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
Add water to a large saucepan until a third full. Cover with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat. Add the rice, stir well and reduce the heat. Simmer with the lid on for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
After 8 minutes, stir in the frozen vegetables, return to the boil and cook for a further 2 minutes or until the rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Drain well in a large sieve or colander.
Pour a tablespoon of the oil into a large, deep, non-stick frying pan or wide-based saucepan or sauté pan – it needs to be large enough to combine all the ingredients at the end. Place over a medium heat. Add the beaten eggs and cook for about a minute, stirring gently so they scramble into soft flakes without overcooking. Tip onto a plate.
Return the pan to the heat, add the remaining oil and fry the onion over a high heat for 3–4 minutes, or until softened and beginning to brown, stirring regularly. Add the cooked meat and fry together for 2 minutes more or until the meat is hot, stirring constantly.
Stir in the ketchup and soy sauce, cook for a few seconds then add the cooked rice, vegetables and egg to the pan. Toss together for 1–2 minutes more or until everything is hot. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper then serve with extra soy sauce for drizzling, if desired.
