  • About ¼ cup sesame oil
  • 2 cups diced cooked ham
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup chopped white onion
  • 3 large garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 5 cups of cooked white rice (at least a day old)
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/8 cup diced (chopped) green onion


  • Add about two tablespoons of sesame oil to a wok and heat the oil on medium high heat.
  • Once the oil has become hot, add the cooked ham and cook the ham for about 2 minutes or until the ham has heated through and has slightly browned on the outside.
  • Remove the ham from the wok.
  • Add a tablespoon of sesame oil to the wok, and allow the grease to get hot. Then, add the eggs to the wok, and cook the eggs until you have well done scrambled eggs. Remove eggs from pan.
  • Next, add another tablespoon of sesame oil to the pan, and once the oil is hot add the onions and garlic to the wok. Cook the garlic and onions for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the onions are translucent in color (this is when the onions are fully cooked and look clear in color). Remove the vegetables from the pan.
  • Add about two tablespoons of sesame oil, the rice, soy sauce, fish sauce, ginger, and garlic powder to the wok. Stir the ingredients.
  • Cook the rice mixture on medium high heat for about 5 to 7 minutes or until the rice is a nice golden brown.
  • After cooking the rice, add the ham, eggs, and green onions to the rice. Stir the rice mixture.
  • Cook the rice for about another two minutes.
  • Then Serve!


Tasty Tip: Use rice that is at least a day old. This helps to decrease the moisture which prevents soggy rice.
