Sausage and Basil Fried Rice

Sausage Basil Fried Rice

បាយឆារសាច់ក្រកនឹងេជីក្រហម (Bai Cha Sach Krok & Chee Krohorm) The warm weather is keeping me up late at night and up early in the morning. Maybe it’s a sign for me to start eating what many consider the most important meal of the day, breakfast. I thought I would be able to skip lunch and just go directly to dinner since I already ate my Banana Nut Muffin and Coffee. However by afternoon my tummy was growling. So with the left over rice and sausage from yesterday dinner, i fixed myself some sausage basil fried rice. Basil is my most favorite herb. I mentioned in my Chicken Lime Soup that this year I planted two varieties, and here they are. Both were used again in my Sausage Basil Fried Rice.

Thai & Italian Basil

Sausage and Basil Fried Rice (makes 2 servings)
(Bai Cha Sach Krok Nung Chee Krohorm) បាយឆារសាច់ក្រកនិងជីក្រហម

Ingredients
2 tablespoons oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 green onion (both the green and white part), cut into 1/2 in
3 cups cooked white rice
2 eggs
1 cup sausage, dice (you can also use any other meat or seafood)
2 jalapenos, slice (optional)
½ onion, cut into bite size (optional)
1 cup fresh basil leaves, (Thai or Italian or both)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce

Method:
In a pan, heat the oil in medium heat. When the oil is hot add garlic and green onion. Stir until the garlic is brown then add jalapeno slices and onion. Cook for several minute or until onion is a bit tender. Add the sausage.

Note: If using un-cook meat add it before the vegetables as it takes longer to cook than vegetables.

Once the meat is is cooked, add in the rice and stir fry for about 3 minutes. Make sure to break up any clumps of rice and that the rice is well coated in oil. Add the seasoning (sugar, soy sauce, fish sauce and oyster sauce) and continue to stir. Work quickly, if the rice starts to stick to the pan you can add a splash of stock or water.

Push the rice to one side of the pan. Crack 2 eggs into the empty side of the pan. As the eggs cook, use your spatula to break them up into small pieces.

Mix the eggs with the rice. Add in the basil and continue to stir-fry until the basil is wilted. Turn off the heat and serve hot.

Note: If basil leaves are big, you can easily tear it into pieces or roughly chop it.
