Hjelmeland Fried Rice~ Great for using up leftover meats
My mother and I made this all the time in my growing up cooking years. We mixed different things and came out with a perfect combination, and everytime I eat it I think of days in the kitchen with my mom, cutting up meat and trimming pea pods!
4 cups Jasmine Rice
3 packages sun bird fried rice seasoning or equivelant
2-3 cups leftover meat chucks (chicken, pork, steak)
1 lb salad shrimp (rinsed)
1 lb. bacon
1 cup fresh pea pods (rinsed and ends trimmed)
1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 cup soy sauce to taste
1. Rinse and cook 4 cups of Jasmine rice in rice cooker. After rice is cooked, let sit until cool, stirring and tossing occasionally to dry out. Do not refrigerate, as this will re-accumulate moisture into the rice.
2. In a large fry skillet with lid, cut up bacon into 1/2 inch pieces with a pair of scissors. Cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet and remove some fat from the pan if desired, but save at least 3-4 Tablespoons in the pan.
3. Add leftover meat or chicken, if meat is raw cook until done. Add salad shrimp, frozen peas and carrots, and one of the packages of fried rice seasonings. Add the chopped green onions, and fresh pea pods and toss well, cook for just a few minutes or until pea pods are just tender.
4. If you have a wok, put about 2 T of vegetable oil and preheat on high. If using a large fry skillet you will have to reduce the ingredients by at least 1/2 and follow same procedure.
5. Add 1 package of seasoning to 1 cup of soy sauce and mix well.
6. Break eggs into hot oil, scramble with a spatula. Add rice, sprinkle other package of fried rice seasonings over rice while mixing. Add vegetables, bacon pieces and meat mixture, and toss with rice, using 2 spoons. Toss and fry rice for about 3-5 minutes. Pour on soy sauce mixture to desired taste, continue tossing rice. It really helps if you have someone who can pour while you toss. Add as much of the soy sauce to suit you, I personally like plenty!!
