House Fried Rice

Fried Rice. Its so easy. You can use pretty much use any leftovers you have in the fridge all at once. I used leftover carne asada meat from a Mexican dish we had. I also threw in a left over grilled mahi mahi fillet. I also used Saffron rice, hence the yellowness.

House Fried Rice
1 1/2 Tbsp oil
1 carrot, sliced thin
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
1 egg
1 tsp soy sauce
2 cups cold leftover rice
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp hot sauce
soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste
1 cup leftover meat ( I used beef and mahi mahi)
Heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add carrots and fry until crisp tender, about 2 minutes. Add peas, corn and cabbage and cook until cabbage gets soft, another 2-4 minutes. Whisk egg and soy sauce. Push veggies to one side of pan and pour egg on the other side. Let cook until set, then scramble. Add rice and meat and fry until heated through, another 2 minutes. Season and serve!!!

It looks great and so colorful! Fried Rice is like my culture's mac & cheese... complete comfort food and the go to dish when I'm not in the mood to slave over the stove. :)
