{Ham Fried Rice}

One of my friends made this for us and it was so yummy I just had to get the recipe. Now we make it anytime we have any asian style meal and it is great! Better than most restaurant style rice.

2 c. uncooked long-grain white rice
4 c. water
2 tsp. sesame oil
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil 
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 c. cubed ham 
3 eggs, beaten
soy sauce

Cook rice according to package directions. (I use 2 cups rice and 4 cups water) Heat sesame oil and vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in onion. When onions become clear and light brown, add garlic. When garlic is lightly browned, add ham and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until ham is nice and hot. Stir in beaten egg and cook until egg is scrambled and firm. When rice is done, add to skillet and mix in thoroughly. Stir in soy sauce ( add just enough to get it light brown, don’t want to add to much… remember, you can always add more later when it’s on your plate.
