  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter divided
  • 2 large eggs whisked
  • 12 ounce frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 tsp minced garlic about 4 cloves
  • 4 cups long grain rice cooked and chilled
  • 3 medium green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce more or less to taste
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce or fish sauce
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet*, over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the whisked eggs and scramble until almost dry about 2 to 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer eggs to a plate.
  • Melt the remaining butter in the skillet. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the bag of frozen peas and carrots to the skillet, along with a pinch of salt and pepper and saute until heated thru. Stir in the rice, green onions, soy sauce, oyster or fish sauce to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the eggs back to the skillet and stir to combine. Remove from heat and add sesame oil. Toss to combine.
  • Serve rice immediately or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 3 days.


*Large Skillet - If you already own a large non-stick pan or wok, I recommend using it for this recipe. If not, you'll want to be vigilant with cooking and may need to add additional butter to keep the rice and eggs from sticking.
