Bak Kwa Fried Rice 肉干炒饭

After the 1.5 months of in depth spring cleaning of my house plus baking of CNY goodies, this annual Lunar New Year holiday is over just like that. Back to work today with utmost reluctance! Gosh... I am missing the temporary break from office and work already!

So with the many rounds of steamboat feastings, I guess it is a norm for households to have leftovers for a meal the next day.

Since I have a substantial amount of bak kwa (given to us by my SIL and a colleague), plus some prawns and leftover rice, I decided that bak kwa fried rice will be the one dish I can whip up with the few ingredients.

Easy peasy and our one meal is then settled.

Bak Kwa Fried Rice
Recipe by Noob Cook

  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 4 shallots peeled and finely chopped (I did not use shallots)
  • 400 grams cooked rice (1 cup uncooked rice cooked in 1 cup of water) refrigerated overnight
  • 3/4 cup frozen vegetables thawed
  • 2 eggs beaten and seasoned with 1/4 tsp light soy sauce and white pepper powder
  • 50 grams cooked frozen prawns (shrimps) thawed
  • 80 grams bak kwa cut with scissors to small bite-sized squares
  • 1/4 cup chopped spring onions
  • 1/4 tsp salt to taste
  • white pepper to taste

  1. Heat oil in wok, stir fry shallots and garlic until shallots turn translucent.
  2. Add rice and thawed vegetables. Stir fry for a minute until well mixed.
  3. Pour egg evenly over rice. Stir fry on high heat until the egg is semi dry. Add shrimps and bak kwa; stir fry briefly until the egg is just cooked.
  4. Add spring onions and stir though to mix evenly. Season the fried rice with salt and white pepper.

    1. Yo Phong Hong! Happy CNY and Gong Xi Fa Cai to You too!
      I have never bought bak kwa during CNY period before and with the 2 packs lying in my fridge, I need to use them in my dishes rather than munching off them on its own which is too "meaty" for me keke... sad not, u can always try this rice when you get bak kwa :)
