  • Cook rice according to package directions.
  • Heat vegetable or sesame oil in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add onions to the hot oil and stir until clear and light brown.
  • Stir in garlic. When garlic is lightly browned, add ham and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add veggies and cook until they are tender.
  • Stir in beaten eggs. Cook until eggs are scrambled and firm.
  • When rice is done, add to skillet and mix in thoroughly. Stir in soy sauce, a little at a time. (you can always add more so don't overdo it).
  • Serve immediately.


For a "dry" fried rice, steam the white rice a day ahead. After cooking rice, let it cool to room temperature. Place the rice in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge overnight. Add refrigerated rice to the skillet as described in the instructions above.
