  • 1 heaped tsp Chinese five-spice powder


  1. Fill a roomy saucepan with water, bring to the boil and tip in a heaped teaspoon of salt - the water will bubble furiously. Pour in the rice, stir once and return to the boil, then turn the heat down a little so that the water is boiling steadily, but not vigorously.

  2. Boil uncovered, without stirring (this makes for sticky rice) for 10 minutes. After 8 minutes, throw in the frozen peas, boil for 2 minutes and drain (don’t rinse).

  3. Heat the sunflower oil in a wok and stir fry the bacon for 3-4 minutes until crisp. Tip in the red pepper and the garlic cloves and stir fry for 2 minutes.

  4. Beat the eggs, pour into the pan and stir fry until the egg just sets. Toss in the Chinese 5-spice

A little confusing with the Method ending partway through, with the words "Toss in the Chinese 5-spice ", but I guessed the rest and it was very nice anyway.

I think the amount of Chinese 5 Spice is a bit too much though and halved it.

Same as above - when do you add the rice to the wok?

Easy to make but a little bland. At what stage do you add the rice?

Maybe I missd something but at what point is the rice combined with other ingredients and when is it fried if at all.

made this as a last minute dinner and it ws very quick and easy turning out fine,I did however find it lacking in depth of flavour.I added some soy sauce but felt it still needed something more.

Really tasty and incredibly easy! I also added finely chopped green beans and used chicken strips instead of bacon, really happy with the result. I only made this for 1 so adjusted the proportions accordingly, but in future I would use more eggs (i only used one medium). Will be making this again!

I tried this out; I loved it! Chicken strips work as well as the bacon; the egg gave it a lovely flavour =D
