Black Pepper Fried Rice
with cashews / scrambled eggs

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
With leftover rice from earlier in the week, this fried rice will come together super fast. A small amount of sauce goes a long way to flavor the rice, especially because it includes ginger, garlic, black pepper, and a bit of Hoisin sauce.

Make

  1. Heat a wok with cooking oil over medium-high heat. Add white parts of green onions, bell peppers, and broccoli and saute until starting to darken in spots, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add water and cover wok with a lid. Steam vegetables for 2 minutes. Remove lid and continue cooking until excess water has cooked off.
  3. Pour sauce over vegetables. Bring to a simmer and simmer until sauce reduces, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Move vegetables the sides of the pan to form a donut. Pour eggs into the middle of the “donut” and scramble until nearly cooked through.
  5. Add rice to pan and toss everything together to combine.
  6. Remove from heat and stir cashews into rice.
  7. Serve stir-fry with green parts of green onions on top. Enjoy!

We doubled the sauce and also had some water that cooked out before we added the sauce that we sopped up with paper towels. Otherwise, it was excellent!

I think this was the best dish I made this week. I'll make extra sauce next time, but it was still delicious.

We made this and I would have liked more sauce. But pretty good with extra soy sauce. We’re trying it again tonight, this time with double the sauce plus mushrooms.

I used shaved steak to save time. This was delicious and very simple to execute.
