Fried Rice

1 1/3 cups uncooked white rice
1 2/3 cups water
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
1/4 pound bacon, cut into strips
1/8 cup soy sauce
1 (10 ounce) package frozen green peas, thawed
2 green onions, chopped

DIRECTIONS
In a saucepan bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, season eggs with salt and pepper.
Heat 1 teaspoon oil in small frying pan, pour in eggs. Coat the bottom of the pan with the eggs, in order to cook them evenly; cook for about 3 minutes. Flip the eggs, cook one minute more and remove them to a cool surface. Let them cool, then cut them into thin slices. Set aside.
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
Spoon remaining 2 teaspoons oil into the skillet with the bacon fat. Stir in rice; break up any clumps and toss to coat with oil. Stir in bacon, soy sauce, peas, eggs and green onions. Stir and cook until heated through, approximately 3 minutes.

Okay- YUM! I don't know how often I'm just craving fried rice, but we can't get to the Chinese food place. Plus if we drive all the way there I always get more than just fried rice. I like knowing what goes into my food, so I'd rather make it at home anyway. I didn't think it was so easy! I watched the group next to me in chefs class make this with ease. I ate some then, and I'm craving more now.

  3. This sounds so yummy!

    I made some yummy coconut rice last week - sauted onions in coconut oil, then the rice for a few minutes till it was opaque (I use brown rice :) & added ~ a can of coconut milk with the water to cook. Oh, so good! & coconut oil is 'the best' oil to cook with (OK, if you can get good bacon or chicken fat, from naturually raised animals, that's good, too! :)
