Vietnamese Fried Rice

It's been a while since I have blogged but I was recovering from surgery and still kind of am. During the worst of it cooking wasn't really a priority. The summer is here though and that's wonderful. We have enjoyed many beach days and have been to lots of BBQ's which is always fun. It's been great catching up with friends that I don't see enough of. Today we stayed home and didn't do much other than groceries and cook lots of yummy food. So here is one of the recipes from today.

Vietnamese Fried Rice

4 cups of cooked jasmine rice
2 shallots, sliced
2 eggs
1 pack of chinese sausage chopped
1 roll of gio lua chopped (sorry don't know the English name)
1 tbsp each of salt and sugar
1 tsp fish sauce, maybe more depending on your own tastes
1 tbsp canola oil

Heat your wok on high heat, till smoking. Add 1 tbsp oil and let it heat up. Dump in your shallots and stir for a few seconds, crack in your eggs and quickly scramble. Add your rice, meats, salt and sugar, fish sauce, mix it all together, taste and see if it needs more fish sauce. Continue stirring for 5-10 min, or until rice is no longer in clumps.
