RECIPE EVERY MAN SHOULD MASTER
It’s a hearty meal that represents maybe $2 worth of food, perfect on a winter night. Here’s what you do:
1. Start with 2 cups of cooked rice— the grains dry but not hard. 2. Heat some oil in a skillet until almost smoking, then add 1 beaten egg, some salt, and a couple of shots of fish sauce. Cook, then remove the egg from the pan. 3. Heat more oil, and add rice. Flip to coat rice with oil, then let it sit and cook for a minute. Add some veggies—i like julienned carrots and a handful of julienned cabbage—and cook for 2 minutes, then add minced garlic and ginger and some sliced scallions. Cook for a minute, then add the egg, breaking it up with a spatula. Season and serve.
