Mushroom and Char Siew Fried Rice

My husband brought back a packet of fresh Shiitake mushroom instead of dried Shiitake per my shopping list. Not knowing what to do with it, I just add it to the fried rice. It was not bad at all. It’s quite tasty with the combination of char siew (Chinese roasted pork), egg and fresh Shiitake mushroom with rice. Here comes our simple lunch on Sunday. 

Mushroom and Char Siew Fried Rice
Serves 2

1 cup of rice, rinsed, cooked in rice cooker and cooled
2 eggs
1 piece of char siew (about 8cm length), sliced and chopped into small pieces
8 pcs of fresh shiitake mushroom, rinsed and sliced
1 tbsp of chopped garlic
1 stalk of spring onion, chopped
cooking oil
light soy sauce to taste

1. Heat up oil in a wok. Scramble the eggs and dish out.
2. Heat up oil in the same wok, saute the char siew. Add mushroom and garlic. Stir-fry till fragrant.
3. Add cooled steamed rice. Sprinkle the rice with light soy sauce to fry till fragrant. Toss in the scrambled egg. Fry till you observe the rice is "jumping" in the wok. Dish out.

Fresh mushroom is my family's favourite food. It is very versatile and I use it quite a lot in my daily cooking. It's such a great idea to add it in your fried rice. Looks so delicious!

I love Shiitake mushrooms, they're so fragrant and I love the taste. And I love fried rice too, I love that it's so simple and it basically clears my fridge. My principle is to never let any food go to waste haha I'd love to give your version of fried rice a go sometime. Thanks for sharing!

I actually cook with fresh shiitake more than with dried ones. The latter usually has a stronger taste but I prefer the freshness (mildness) of fresh ones.

love this one-dish meal. I like fresh mushrooms, dried ones usually only use for stews.
