Fried Rice & Chow Mein

Transported from my previous journal.Another 2 one dish meals i made awhile back.Heh I'm all about convenience if you haven't notice it by now;)



Fried Rice

5 cups of good cooked rice(try making rice the night before as drier-texture rice will yield a better tasting fried rice )
Sausages(I use Jimmy Dean's breakfast sausage but you can substitute with 3 to 4 sliced lap cheong)
5 eggs(beaten and seasoned with 2 tablespoons of light soy sauce and 1 teaspoon salt)
half a large white onion(finely chopped)
3 cloves garlic(minced)
5 to 6 large dried mushrooms(soaked in water for 30mins and sliced)
1 cup and a half of mixed vegetables
cooking oil(i use olive..but peanut is fine too)
half cup oyster sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste






Chow Mein

about 375g dried egg noodles
one and a half tablespoons of sesame oil(i use chee seng's)
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce( I use lee kum kee's)
fat-free olive oil spray(I use this..but you can use any cooking oil)
3 cloves garlic(minced)
half of a white onion(wedged)
2 average size chicken breasts(cubed)
1 medium size red bell pepper(sliced)
5 to 6 large dried mushrooms and a handful of black fungus(soak in water for half an hour till tender then slice only the mushrooms)
