Bacon Fried Rice
- Yield: 6-8 Servings 1x
4 cups short grain white rice (Japanese)
4 1/4 cups cold water
1 lb. uncured bacon
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 bunch of green onions, sliced
1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, peeled and sliced then cut slices into quarters
1 cup frozen peas
¼ tsp. pepper
¼ cup Braggs Liquid Aminos or Coconut Aminos
¼ tsp. roasted sesame oil
Cook the Rice: (this recipe makes 8 cups of rice)
If you have a rice cooker follow cooking directions in user manual in not, follow the stovetop directions below.
In a large sauce pan add cold water and rice and allow to sit for 10 minutes, this will allow the grains to begin to absorb the eater and they will cook more evenly.
Cover pan and turn burner to high heat. Bring the covered pan to a boil, about 5 minutes. Do not lift the lid just listen for boiling sounds.
Reduce the heat to low and let rice cook 5 minutes more or until water is absorbed. You’ll hear a hissing sound, or quickly lift the lid and check.
Return heat to high for just 30 seconds and then remove pan from the burner, with the lid still on, and allow to steam for about 10 minutes.
Fluff with a fork and serve.
