The fried rice from my favorite Japanese Steak House
Course: Fried Rice
Servings: 4 -6
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 3 carrots thinly shaved and diced
- 3 green onions thinly sliced
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbs Tamari or Soy Sauce
- 3 tbs peanut or vegetable oil
- 2 tbs sake
- 2 tbs butter
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 2 tsp gomasio
Before doing anything make sure to have your veggies sliced and diced. This recipe takes only minutes to make so having the ingredients prepped is a must. For the carrots, I used a potato peeler to get strips and then sliced them into more manageable pieces.
Heat a large pan over medium/high heat. Add the oil and let warm for 30 seconds.
Crack the eggs into the oil. Immediately start scrambling.
Once the egg has thoroughly cooked, add the rice, carrots, onion and garlic. Mix well.
Then add the tamari or soy sauce and the sake. Then season with the salt and pepper and the gomasio.
Yes, the secret ingredient is Gomasio. It is a combination of sugar, sea salt, seaweed and sesame seeds. Some don't have the dash of sugar. If yours does not have a dash of sugar, add a pinch to the rice. You can sometimes find this labeled as rice seasoning instead of Gomasio. Either way you will find it most likely in the international aisle.
Mix together until all of the seasoning is mixed in.
