Sometimes I don't have to buy fake-Asian food. I can make it myself.

A few weeks ago on FB I posted pictures of some particularly delicious fried rice I made at home. At home in my very own wok even! Due to the positive response and the feeling of 'ooh yummy' that I received, I figured a little at home (totally without measurements) tutorial was in order.

The onion I cut myself, but every other veggie you see here is from a broccoli stir fry bag that I found in the salad section of Safeway. Probably not as cost effective, but I was going for easy and this certainly ease.

Place your wok over medium high/high heat and add vegetable oil to the pan. Once the oil is kind of scorching hot add in the veggies and stir sparingly, allowing everything to get a bit of color.

(L-R: Chili Garlic Sauce ~ Low Sodium Soy Sauce ~ Hot Sesame Seed Oil ~ Honey ~ Garlic ~ Ground Ginger)

While the veggies are cooking put whatever amount of the products you like into a bowl and stir. I recommend a good bit of the sriracha chili garlic stuff  and soy sauce and light on everything else.

Add rice to the veggies and stir gently, warming everything up and starting the combining process. Once that's done take your small bowl of sauce and pour it evenly over the top - continue to stir and make sure that everything's evenly coated.

At this point I have to admit I'm not spiffy enough to do this all together, because I take the fried rice out of the pan. Turn down the heat (maybe to about medium) and add in 2 beaten eggs. Scramble as usual.

Turn off the heat. Add back in the fried rice and stir gently, incorporating the egg into everything else and VOILA! Fried rice just as if you bought it from your favorite 24/7 place.
