Method

  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

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
