📝 Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cooked white rice, preferably chilled
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)

👩‍🍳 Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Prepare Ingredients: Make sure all your ingredients are prepped and ready to go before you start cooking. This will help everything come together quickly once you're at the stove.

  2. Scramble Eggs: Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Pour in beaten eggs and scramble until just set. Remove from skillet and set aside.

  3. Sauté Veggies: In the same skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add chopped onion and diced carrots. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

  4. Add Garlic and Peas: Stir in minced garlic and thawed peas. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, until garlic is fragrant and peas are heated through.

  5. Stir in Rice: Add chilled cooked rice to the skillet, breaking up any clumps with a spoon or spatula. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, allowing the rice to heat through and absorb the flavors of the veggies.

  6. Season and Flavor: Drizzle soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil over the rice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well to coat the rice evenly with the delicious sauces.

  7. Add Scrambled Eggs: Gently fold the scrambled eggs back into the rice mixture, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout.

  8. Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle sliced green onions and sesame seeds over the top for a pop of color and added flavor. Serve your homemade Takeout Fried Rice hot and fresh, and savor every delicious bite!
