Ingredients

  • 6 cups cooked rice
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 2 large slices of ginger
  • 8 ounces Spam (225g, diced)
  • 1 onion (diced, about 1 cup)
  • 2 carrots (diced, about 1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine
  • 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 3 scallions (diced)

Instructions

  • First prepare your rice. You can make this the night before and leave it in the fridge, or you can make it 20-30 minutes before you want to eat.
  • When your rice is at the ready, heat the oil in a wok set over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and fry gently in the oil for about 1 minute. Next, add the spam. Cook the spam until it’s lightly crisped at the edges, stirring occasionally. Next, add the onions and carrots, and cook for a few minutes until tender.
  • Turn the heat up to high, and add the cooked rice, breaking up any clumps with your spatula. Spread out evenly into a single layer across the wok to warm up the rice (if using leftovers) and gently crisp it.
  • Next, add the Shaoxing wine, the soy sauce, and fish sauce. Stir to combine.
  • Spread the rice out again into a single layer. Drizzle the beaten eggs across the rice, and stir-fry quickly with your spatula. Let sit for about 15 seconds, then stir-fry quickly to cook the egg completely and distribute it throughout the rice.
  • Add the peas and scallions and stir-fry until the peas are warmed through. Serve your Spam Fried Rice immediately with hot sauce of choice!
