I love fried rice.
My absolute favorite is sinangag, or garlic fried rice. Not surprisingly, I grew up eating it made with white rice, but I find it so much more satisfying with brown rice somehow. Eaten alongside a fried egg and sometimes a couple of bacon slices, it makes a fantastic breakfast.
However, I am also incredibly partial to garlic rice fried with egg and bacon, and veggies besides. A complete meal in and of itself, and one that’s actually pretty balanced.
This, of course, includes the aforementioned garlic, bacon, and egg (three cloves, two slices, and one beaten, respectively). I also used green onion, a bit of regular onion, carrot, red bell pepper, and some frozen green peas when I made this last night, but you can use what you like; this is just what we happened to have on hand. Seasoned pretty simply, with just salt, pepper, and a bit of toasted sesame oil.
Made for a lovely dinner, with enough leftover for tonight!
