When I posted Fried Rice with Long Beans some of you commented that you use French beans and lap cheong (Chinese sausage).
One day I defrosted a portion of rice and I was craving for some luncheon meat hee..hee..hee... I also had some lap cheong in the fridge and I specially bought a packet of French beans for the fried rice.
There was quite a bit of slicing/chopping to do - the luncheon meat, lap cheong, cili padi, French beans and garlic.
I used a big wok because there is more room to toss the ingredients around. I started with frying the lap cheong until browned and I dished it out. Then in went the luncheon meat cubes, also fried till brown. These were also removed from the wok and it was the garlic's turn in the hot oil.
When it was fragrant and slightly browned, I threw in the sliced French beans together with the cili padi and them gave a toss. Then I pushed the beans aside and poured in two beaten eggs.
Once the eggs were almost set, the rice went in together with some seasonings made from light and dark soya sauce and a bit of fish sauce. The whole lot was tossed until all the ingredients were well mixed.
If you are feeling particularly indulgent and not caring about your health, you could serve your fried rice with a slice of luncheon meat which had been coated with beaten eggs and fried. Mmmmm.....
This fried rice makes a very nice packed lunch too.
I think I may be over indulging in carbs and it is time to cut back lest I get back to wearing my fat pants again. Oh no. I think I already threw them away!
