Japanese Bacon and Garlic Fried Rice

DSC_0196 (2).JPG

I’ve been trying to try more varieties of fried rice as it is a convenient and easy one pot meal for busy days. I think this is one of the best combo so far! And this is coming from someone who hates bacon! I absolutely hate bacon but cook with it quite often for Ben, who is a bacon lover. Garlic gently toasted in some butter, then fried with bacon, fluffy eggs and a concoction of yummy sauces. What is there to not love?! Super easy to cook and really delicious!

Ingredients:

  1. 2/3 cup short grain rice cooked in 1 cup water (use ratio according to your rice cooker)
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 190g bacon bits
  4. Knob of butter
  5. 2 heaped tablespoon of roughly chopped garlic (about 8 cloves)
  6. 1 tbsp sugar
  7. 1 tbsp fish sauce
  8. 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  9. 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  10. Spring onions, chopped

Method:

  1. Make scrambled eggs that are slightly undercooked and set aside.
  2. Cook bacon in a cold, dry pan to render out the fats. Cook over low heat until brown and crispy. Set aside.
  3. Using the same pan with the bacon grease, melt the butter.
  4. Add garlic and cook over medium low heat until lightly golden.
  5. When garlic is lightly golden (do not burn), add in rice and sauces. Fry over high heat and toss until combined.
  6. Add in eggs and bacon and fry briefly.
  7. Turn off heat and add in spring onions and mix well.
