Ch'ao fan (fried rice)

Measure Ingredient
4 cups Cooked rice

½ teaspoon Sugar.

Here's the fried rice recipe that I always use--it's from the Encyclopedia under Chinese Cookery.

It is difficult to give exact ingredients and quantities becasue Fried Rice is a versatile dish and an excellent way to use leftovers. Cooked meat and vegetables are combined with cooked rice, beaten eggs (sometimes the eggs are cooked first in a thin sheet and shredded), and seasonings, and stir-fried until thoroughly heated. For 4 cups cooked rice you will need 2 eggs, 1 cup each of shredded or diced meat and vegetables, and ¼ cup diced green onion. Pork, ham, chicken, beef, crabmeat, shrimps, or lobster can be used. Two or more vegetables can be combined to make the cup needed--mushrooms, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, or peas.

Season with 2 tblesp. soy sauce and ½ tsp. sugar. Makes 4 servings.

NOTE: For best results, start with well-chilled cooked rice.
