That’s the beauty of fried rice. Anything goes. And anything in your fridge that needs to go (and is still edible) can be saved by a quick stir-fry in the skillet or wok.
You can use any kind of rice, so long as the rice has spent some time chilling in the fridge. (Warm, just-cooked rice will stick together as it fries.) Ed recommends using leftover rice straight from the fridge—while it’s still chilled—and any protein, such as the pork chop in the recipe below.
The process is almost as easy as the assembly. Start with a large skillet over medium-high heat. (A wok works best, but a skillet does the job, too.) Add frying oil and then an egg. Fry your veggies, rice, protein, and then season the pan with salt, pepper, soy, and scallions. Done? Done.
Recipe adapted from Ed Schoenfeld, co-owner of RedFarm in New York City
What you’ll need:
1 Tbsp vegetable or peanut oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 sweet red pepper, cut lengthwise into 1-inch slices
1 small zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1-inch slices
2 cups leftover cooked rice that has been refrigerated for at least 12 hours
¼ lb. leftover cooked protein, such as chicken, beef, pork, or fish
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp finely chopped scallions
How to make it:
1. In a large skillet (or wok) over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the egg and cook, stirring until the egg sets, about 20 seconds.
2. Add the onion, red pepper, and zucchini, and cook until lightly browned, stirring constantly to prevent burning, about 2 minutes.
Add the rice. Using the bottom of a spoon, press down on and break apart any clumps of rice. Cook the rice until grains have separated from each other and steam starts to rise from the rice, stirring often, about 3 minutes.
3. Add whatever protein you are using. Stir for 30 seconds or until food is heated through.
4. Taste rice and add salt and pepper to your liking. Stir to mix. Add soy sauce, stirring often until the sauce is evenly distributed, about 1 minute. Add scallions and stir once. Serves 2.
