Bacon Fried Rice

Vendor: Chef Mark
Type of Meal: Pork

1/2 c. chopped, cooked pepper bacon
1/4 c. bacon fat
1 c. cold cooked rice
2 eggs lightly mixed w/ a fork
1/4 c. garlic scapes
1 c. chopped mixed veggies (whatever is in season)
2T Roadhouse homemade Spicy Ketchup mixed with 1T soy sauce

1. Heat large skillet or wok, add 2T. bacon fat, bacon and scapes, sauté for 30 seconds.

2. Add chopped veggies (keep pan heat very hot) and saute another 30 seconds.

3. Add rice and toss pan, you want rice to slightly brown and pop in the pan, maybe 1 minute.

4. Make a well in the center of the pan by pushing everything to the edges, drizzle ketchup/soy sauce mixture over this.

5. Add remaining 2T bacon fat to well in center of pan and add lightly mixed eggs. Begin to pull eggs from center of pan to the edges. ( This is a hard technique to describe, how to get those thin wispy strands of cooked egg throughout the rice – the fork used for mixing the eggs or a pair of chopsticks might work)

6. When eggs are set toss everything in pan and serve. This might be really good with a fried egg on top, cooked in bacon fat of coarse.

In regards to the mixed veggies- I used radish and its greens& spring onions, but it could also be peas or carrots or summer squash or green tomatoes or beet greens or kohlrabi or green beans or…you get the picture.
