Here’s another dish from Kenneth Lo’s Cheap Chow. I went for the Chinese classic of fried rice, which I’ve attempted before without reference to a recipe, with limited success. I figured starting at the very beginning when it came to fried rice might be a good idea, so Basic Fried Rice it is.
- I halved the amounts, not being 4-5 people.
- The bacon I used was some huge lumps of cooking smoked bacon, chopped into beautifully fatty lumps. Arteries be damned. The lumps were possibly larger then Kenneth would have wanted.
- I think I accidentally put the rice in before putting the egg in. This would account for the lack of actual bits of egg in the finished dish.
- Everything else went to plan.
This was delicious, though, as with other things I’ve cooked from Cheap Chow, oddly greasy. Well, I say oddly, it does have a fair bit (ie tonnes) of fat in it.
