Hawaiian Fried rice is a dish of cooked rice that has been stir-fried in a wok or a frying pan and is usually mixed with other ingredients such as eggs, vegetables, seafood, or meat. It is often eaten by itself or as an accompaniment to another dish.
- 3 cups uncooked long-grain rice
- 10 tablespoons margarine or butter, divided
- 8 large eggs
- 1 can (12 ounces) lite SPAM, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
- 1/3 cup chopped onion
- 4 cups frozen mixed vegetables (about 16 ounces), thawed and drained
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- Sliced green onions, optional
- Cook rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, heat 1 tablespoon margarine over medium-high heat.
- Whisk eggs until blended; pour into pan. The mixture should set immediately at the edge.
- As eggs set, push cooked portions toward the center, letting uncooked portions flow underneath. When eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains, remove to a cutting board and chop.
- In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon margarine over medium-high heat. Add Spam and onion; cook and stir until Spam is lightly browned, 6-8 minutes.
- Add mixed vegetables, garlic, and pepper; cook until heated through. Stir in cooked rice, soy sauce, and remaining 1/2 cup margarine; cook and stir until margarine is melted. Gently stir in eggs. If desired, top with sliced green onion.
