I love fried rice, any kind of fried rice, and the list of possibilities for fried rice is endless … that said, here is another recipe for leftover ham, or any fully-cooked cubed ham (of course you could use ground pork, diced chicken or shrimp instead, or leave out the meat entirely). Delicious and so easy!
1 cup white rice, cooked according to package instructions
1 cup cooked ham, cubed (any ham will work; use leftover, cubed, sliced, whatever you have)
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
2 tbls. soy sauce (more or less depending on taste)
2 eggs, beaten (preferably farm fresh)
5-6 stalks fresh asparagus, chopped
2 large carrots, chopped/diced
1/2 cup green peas
1 cup cabbage, chopped/diced
1-2 tbls butter
*Note – add any fresh veggies you like
Melt butter in large frying pan, or electric skillet; add onion, celery, cabbage, peas and carrots; cover and cook over medium heat until al dente (or firm/tender); stir in ham and continue to cook until hot. Add eggs and stir until cooked through; stir in cooked rice and soy sauce. Continue cooking until heated through. Add fresh asparagus last, cover and cook until just done. Serve immediately.
