Poached egg rice

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Rice (up to)
6 cups Water
4 Eggs
Oyster sauce

1. Boil or steam rice (see recipes).

2. Bring water to a boil in another saucepan. Break eggs one at a time onto a flat dish; then gently ease into boiling water. Reduce heat to medium and poach until the egg whites set, but the yolks are still moist.

3. Arrange cooked rice on a serving platter; top with poached eggs.

Sprinkle eggs lightly with oyster sauce and serve. VARIATION: At the end of step 1, while the rice is still in its cooking pot, make four indentations in its surface with the bottom of a glass. Then break a raw egg into each indentation. Cover the pot and let stand 1 to 2 minutes. (The hot rice will cook the eggs.)
