Yeung chow fried rice is a simple dish. It can be prepared in about 15 or 20 minutes. This Chinese delight can be served as a side dish or a main dish. As a result of the basic ingredients used and being so easy to make, it’s a great recipe during the week.
The beauty of this dish is its versatility. I use the three by tree vegetable rule when making this – 3 vegetables and 3 tablespoons of each vegetable. You, however, can add as much or as little as you like. You can make you own rice or buy precooked rice from the grocery store. If you are making you own, it’s best to make it the day before and store it in the fridge overnight because you don’t want it too sticky. Originally, the dish calls for shrimp. In light of this, if you have some nice fresh shrimp at your disposal, go ahead and add it in. If you have fresh peas, use them because it makes the dish so much nicer. We used diced pork simply because we had it left over from the night before. You can use chicken, ham, sausage or whatever you have kicking around in the fridge. Lastly, it’s critical to let you eggs set and solidify completely; otherwise, they will stick to the rice and your Yeung chow fried rice will become a Yeung chow sticky mess.
