Asian-Style Fried Rice
by James Belardo

When I attended Bildersee Junior High School in Brooklyn, New York, in the late seventies, I had the chance to attend several Home Economics classes. Typically, the boys attended Shop Class and the girls attended Home Economics (’twas the times). They’d swap the classes now and then, that’s where we learned to cook a few simple dishes and sew! One of the dishes we learned was Asian-Style Fried Rice. I enjoyed it so much that I went home and prepared it for my family, specifically for my Grandma and mom. The following is an interpretation of the original recipe with a few added twists.

Ingredients
1-2 eggs (scrambled in bacon fat)
3 cups brown rice, cooked
1 clove garlic, slivered
4-6 mushrooms
1/2 cup peas
2 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
1 bell pepper, diced (1/2 red + 1/2 green)
2 tbsp teriyaki sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
Avocado oil
sesame oil
Salt and White Pepper – to taste
green onions – optional
sesame seeds

Marinade
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp Asian cooking wine

Meat
Chicken
