If you don’t have any two day old cooked rice then prepare a cup and set it aside. Sauté the onion over medium heat in a large pan, pot, or wok with a bit of oil until it begins to brown followed by any other raw vegetables you’re using such as carrots, spinach, mushrooms, peas, celery, or scallions. After a few minutes add a scrambled egg breaking it into smaller pieces as it cooks. Any leftover chicken, beef, pork, or shrimp? Now’s the time to throw it in. Sesame seeds or chili flakes? Throw them in too.
When everything is warmed through add four tablespoons of soy sauce, a splash of water then the cooked rice. Cook for another five to ten minutes mixing occasionally so that the rice absorbs the soy sauce evenly.
