How to make it
- 1.In a skillet or non-stick frying pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil and stir fry the "hard" vegetables first--diced bell peppers and carrots, 5 minutes. Next add the diced onions, corn, and shrimp to the pan, another 5 minutes. If there is excess water/liquid, discard carefully and set aside on lowest heat setting. Optional: Cooking each ingredient separately (pepper, carrot / garlic, onion / shrimp) to ensure that they cook consistently is perfectly fine, but it will add another 5~10 minutes to your cooking time.
- 2. In another pan or skillet, scramble 2 eggs in generous amount of oil. When finished, add eggs to the main skillet with other ingredients. Optional: Prepare 4 sunny-side up eggs for the topping/garnish.
- 3. On low heat, add cooled rice, butter, soy sauce and oyster sauce and mix thoroughly with spoon (wooden works best). Make sure to coat sauce on rice and rest of ingredients well; this will take a few minutes and some hand/wrist strength from continuous mixing.
- 4. Plate the fried rice topped with a sunny-side up egg. If wanting a semi-round shape (see pic above), stuff fried rice in a round bowl pressing down firmly. Set the bowl upside down on a plate; the fried rice should sit upright in a round shape. Enjoy with kimchi and other banchan (side dishes).
- *Some people like to stir fry the ingredients separately because they cook at different times. For fried rice, this can be skipped since the main point is to get them slightly tender; this means cooking the harder veggies (carrots) first and adding the softer ones (onions) later. This will save you valuable minutes in cooking time and the hassle of washing unnecessary, extra dishes.
