Mandarin Style Fried Rice
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons minced ginger
1 bunch chopped scallions, green and white separated
1 lapchang, diced (Chinese sausage), can substitute with 4 strips of cooked
bacon, shrimp, Chinese barbecue pork or smoked chicken.
8 cups cooked, day old long grain rice
3 tablespoons thin soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
Salt to taste
It is recommended to use day old rice so that the drier rice can soak up the
flavors. In a wok, add 2 tablespoons of oil and quickly soft-scramble the eggs.
Remove the eggs. In the same wok, coat with oil and stir-fry garlic and ginger.
Add white scallions and lapchang. Add rice and mix thoroughly. Add soy sauce,
white pepper and scrambled eggs. Check for seasoning. Serve immediately.
