Benihana Fried Rice

Benihana Fried Rice

4 cups cooked rice
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
2 Tbsp finely grated carrot
1/2 cup diced onion
1 1/2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper
1 cup chopped ham or cooked chopped chicken (or both)

Cook rice according to package directions. Cool.

Scramble eggs in a small pan. Separate into small pea-size bites while cooking.

When rice has cooled to near room temperature, add peas, carrot, scrambled egg, diced onion and ham/chicken to the bowl. Toss ingredients.

Melt butter in large frying pan over medium-high heat. When butter has melted, dump bowl of rice and other ingredients into pan and add soy sauce plus a dash of salt and pepper.

Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring often. Great served with sweet and sour chicken or won ton skins.
