Fried Rice



1 stick of butter
7 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup + 4 tsp soy sauce
1 lb beef
Salt/pepper to taste
2 lb chicken
Vegetable oil
2 tbs sesame seeds
2 large potatoes
1-1/2 tsp sesame seed oil
8 cups cold cooked rice.
Veggies, fresh or frozen. Looked to be about 2 lbs.
  1. Cut up the meat into bite-size pieces, putting each in its own bowl.
  2. Grab some sesame seeds and sprinkle some on the meat. Looks to be about 1 tbs per bowl.
  3. Pour 1 tsp of of soy sauce per pound of meat. (1 tsp for the beef and 2 tsp for the chicken) We don't eat pork, so that is why I omit it.
  4. Pour 1/2 tsp sesame seed oil on the beef, 1 tsp on the chicken.
  5. Add fresh pepper to each bowl of meat. 
  6. Stir each bowl of meat, until it is well coated. Set aside. This will be marinading for about 30 minutes, while you prepare the rest of this meal.
  7. Peel and shred potatoes.
  8. Over high heat, add some vegetable oil to a skillet. When hot, add the potatoes. Stir.
  9.  Salt and pepper to taste. Note: Go lightly on the salt, as you will be adding soy sauce later.Turn heat down to medium.This will be finished when the potatoes are still a bit crunchy. About 80% cooked. Transfer potatoes to a large pot. Set aside.
  10. Using the same skillet you used to cook the potatoes, add a small amount of the vegetable oil and pour in eggs, salt and pepper to taste. Scramble the eggs. When finished, add to the same pot as the potatoes.
  11. To the skillet, add each meat and cook separately. You will not need to use any vegetable oil as the marinade already has sesame seed oil in it. When done, add to pot, along with potatoes and eggs.
  12. To the skillet, add about 2-3 tbs of butter, veggies. Salt/pepper to taste, sprinkle on some more sesame seed.
  13. Add about 1 tsp soy sauce. Stir to coat. Cover with lid and allow to cook for about 5 minutes. You want it firm, but not soggy. Add the veggies to the pot.
  14. Add the cold rice and the rest of the butter. A bit more salt/pepper. Add 1/3 cup soy sauce. Mix well.
  15. Allow to cook until the rice is heated.
She estimates the cost of this meal to be about $15.00 ($2.50 per person) if you can catch the meat on sale. Even less if you grow your own veggies. This will feed a family of six. As you see the portions are huge.
