Peanut and Bacon Fried Rice
Peanut and Bacon Fried Rice
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 2-3
  • 3-4 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 cups chopped kale
  • half of a lemon
  • 5 slices of bacon, diced
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • 3 green onions, whites and green separated and diced
  • 2 cups day old, cooked white rice
  • 1 cup peanuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • kosher salt
  • 2 tsp chili garlic paste
  • 1 large egg
  1. In a large nonstick skillet over high heat, add 1 tbsp sesame oil. Add the kale, stirring until wilted. Add a couple pinches of salt and stir. Pour the kale into a bowl and squeeze lemon over it. Stir once more and set aside.
  2. Add the diced bacon to the same pan over high heat, stirring and cooking until browned. Pour in another tablespoon of the sesame oil. Add the ginger and the whites of the green onions and stir, letting the onions soften, for about 1-2 minutes. Add an additional tablespoon of sesame oil and then add the rice.
  3. Pat the rice out into an even layer, letting it cook for a minute or two before stirring and repeating. Keep stirring and patting it down, letting the rice brown. Once the rice begins to brown, add the soy sauce and chili sauce. Stir to coat. Then add the peanuts, letting them toast in the rice.
  4. Once the rice is nice and browned and slightly crisp, create a hole in the center of the rice, add a little oil, and crack an egg into the hole. Stir the egg to scramble with your spoon. Let it sit and cook a little before scrambling again. Once the egg is cooked, stir it in and remove from heat. Sprinkle with the reserved green onion and serve immediately.
