Ham Fried Rice

Cory went on his mission to Japan, and so he is really good at making up Oriental recipes. So this is his recipe, not mine. We tried to do measurements as we went along, but some things depend on how much rice you use.

Ham Fried Rice

2 Tbsp Canola Oil
2 cups sliced mushrooms, button or cremini
pinch of salt
a couple of shakes of Sesame oil...a little goes a long way
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2-2 Tbsp fresh ginger root, minced
1 1/2 cup cubed ham
2-3 large eggs, beaten
3 1/2 cups cooked rice
1/2 cup soy sauce or tempura sauce
4-5 green onions, sliced

Heat oil (Canola and sesame) in a large saucepan. Add mushroom and a pinch of salt. Cook for about 5minutes, then add garlic and ginger. When you can smell the garlic, add the ham. Stir to combine. Beat eggs and then add to the mixture. Stir around until eggs are cooked and mixed throughout mixture. Add rice and soy sauce or tempura sauce. Stir well to combine. Just prior to serving add green onions, reserving some for garnish.

Actually, I do love it. And, for the record, Wendy never told me this was posted. I think she is sabotaging my need for fried rice!
