Nice Spice Fried Rice

First, let me start off by saying that this is not a traditional fried rice recipe. I made this the other night in a desperation for anything closely resembling chinese food. I however, have made this recipe before and stuffed it into bell peppers and it was equally delicious in that too. I love this recipe because it is quick, easy, and delicious! ... Enjoy! 

1/2 lb. ground meat ( turkey, beef, etc ) 
1/2 small red onion ( Chopped ) 
3 cloves garlic ( Minced ) 
1 tsp. ginger paste 
1 jalapeno ( Minced ) 
1 egg ( Scrambled ) 
1 cup rice 
1 3/4 cups water + 1 tbsp. 
3 tbsp. soy sauce + 1 tbsp. 

In a small sauce pan add water and 3 tbsp. soy sauce. Add rice and bring to boil. Once rice is boiling, cover, and reduce to simmer for 15 minutes. Once rice is finished cooking fluff with fork and set aside. 

In a saute pan add meat, onion, garlic, ginger, jalapeno, and 1 tbsp. Soy Sauce. Cook until meat is brown and cooked through. Once meat is finished cooking. Add rice. Cook rice in pan for 3 minutes then move mixture to side of pan. In the empty space of the pan add egg. Stir continuously in the empty space to scramble the egg and avoid sticking to the pan. Once egg is scrambled mix into the rice mixture and serve.

  1. Use this recipe in stuffed bell peppers by omitting the egg and stuffing in the bell peppers. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Pull out 10 minutes before and top with slice of cheddar cheese. Place back in oven for remaining 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
