Garlic Fried Rice with Vinegar Sauce and a Fried Egg
Saveur magazine did it again.
This recipe is straight out of their magazine with just some minor changes and so delicious.
My health crazy boys loved it.
3/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
14 cloves of garlic
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup canola oil
4 cups cooked cold rice
3 sliced scallions
6 to 8 fried eggs
Heat the oil and garlic in a 12 inch skillet.
Cook the garlic till light golden brown but not dark.
Stir the vinegar, red pepper, one tablespoon minced cooked garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl and set aside.
I use the rest of cooked garlic and oil to cook the rice.
Add the rice to the skillet with the oil and garlic and let it crisp on the bottom then stir it around and crisp up the other side.
This takes about 7 minutes
Place about 5 or 6 tablespoons of the rice on a plate.
Drizzle with the vinegar sauce about 4 to 5 teaspoons on each serving.
Add the fried egg and scallions on top of the rice.
Serve more of the vinegar on the side.
I would also add a bed of spinach under the rice and egg for color and just because I always think I need to eat more greens
I had a brunch and served this with a baked ham, okra and pork potato pies.
