Whenever I think of a list of fried rice, it’s always the fried rice with eggs popping up first at the top while the one with soy sauce staying at the bottom. I’ve always thought “how could something with just soy sauce be good? ” Again, I hate my own ignorance. It’s more than just soy sauce and I cannot stop having more. Recipe adapted from 蒜香酱油炒饭.
- Cooked rice 2 bowls
- Unsalted butter 20g
- 5-6 garlic gloves, chopped
- 1 green onion, chopped
- 1.5 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp dark soy sauce
- 1 tsp cooking wine
- Melt the butter in a skillet over med-high heat.
- Fry half of the garlic chops until they turn golden.
- Add the rice and cooking wine. Try your best to break the rice apart (I just don’t like my fried rice sticky). It’s a workout.
- Add the soy sauce mix and stir quickly for 1 minute. Turn off the heat and add the rest garlic chops and green onion chops. Stir a bit. Done. Or not yet?
Where’s the egg? It’s not fried rice if there’s no egg! Fry yourself an egg on the side! Also, you will be surprised how good the dish is when you ACCIDENTALLY drop some cashew on the plate 😉
