Super Fast, Delicious Fried Rice

Breville EW30XL Electric Gourmet Wok

My Father in Law bought us a wok that he fell in love with and wanted us to try.  I came home from a Penn State football game late last night very tired from the long day,  and decided to give it a whirl.  I had leftover rice in the frige, used some frozen peppers, bean sprouts from a can, and some of my chicken's eggs so I whipped up a fried rice in five minutes that tasted as good, if not better than any I ever got from a chinese restaurant.

I heated the wok to the 10 heat setting (there are 14, this thing gets as hot as the professional woks used with gas in chinese restaurants so it stir fry's like the pros).  
I added a T of oil, even though you can cook without oil, I like using oil.  Cracked two eggs into the wok, and scrambled them.  Added some frozen sliced bell peppers, a can of bean sprouts, stirred it up a min, and dumped in the leftover rice from my Wolfgang Puck Rice cooker, some Sriracha Chili Sauce and a bit of soy sauce. The Sriracha Chili Sauce is available in the international food section in most grocery stores and Rachel Ray featured it in her magazine this month as one of the secret ingredients chef's use in marinades, wings and meatballs.
In n two mins, this dish was ready to eat. Add some shrimp or whatever you like for your favorite fried rice.  I'm a bean curd (tofu) lover but my boys prefer shrimp so I can whip up theirs, then, in five mins be eating my favorite.

I could have added more and plan to play with this thing all week..hope my family is ready to eat stir fry non-stop for awhile, I love this new kitchen toy!  Good thing I bought that 40 pound bag of jasmine rice. 

This wok is totally submersible in water (minus the plug) and dishwasher safe..the whole thing! 

Customers gave this a five star rating, and it has great reviews.  

This thing heated up in one minute and was ready to use.  The instruction booklet came with some recipes I will try, and I have some great recipes of my own I cant' wait to make.  I am definitely going to make a trip to the grocery store international section today for more fun ingredients.

Thanks again to my Father-in-Law, George Dillman for the fun new toy!!!
