Get a skillet going over medium heat, and add some oil and chopped garlic.
Now... I know this is going to be hard to believe, but you have to add SPAM! *gasp* Don't worry, I am an avid Spam hater, and I ate this rice up like it was going out of style...and THEN found out she used Spam. I survived, and so will you. You will like it, I promise. The Spam adds the saltiness you need for the perfect fried rice. So, suck it up, and try it.
Next, you add your rice. The important thing to remember with the rice is to fold it over. If you do too much stirring, your rice gets mushy. Give it time to get a little of the fried texture on the bottom of the rice, then fold it over.
Now you need to add some soy sauce. I do not have a measurement.. just until the rice is a little brown.
You need about this much. It's an exact science, as you can see.
Mix it all together by folding it over until it looks like this. You won't get every grain of rice brown. It's okay to see some white rice.
Now, add your frozen carrots and peas; however much you want.
YUM-O! This is the perfect fried rice! She adds a scrambled egg sometimes too. When you do that, you just push the rice to the side, add a tad of oil (just enough so the egg won't stick to the pan), and crack the egg directly into the pan. Then scramble it up and mix it with the rice. You can also add chicken to the rice. She's even made this stuff for breakfast with bacon added to it. At first, it was a little weird for me, but who would turn down bacon fried rice?? Hello!
