Ham, liver, and eggs fried rice is an easy fried rice recipe to make with leftover white rice and ham. The eggs and liver make it look and taste better.
Fried rice is delicious on its own, but when paired with these savory side dishes, it quickly transforms from a casual dinner to an unforgettable meal. It is good for lunch along with any drink of your choice.
This Healthy Fried Rice Recipe Contains The Following:
Ham: This is pork from a leg cut that has been preserved through curing, either wet or dry, with or without smoking. The term “ham” refers to both whole cuts of meat and those that have been mechanically formed as processed meat.
The modern word “ham” is derived from the Old English ham or hom, which means “the hollow or bend of the knee,” and comes from a Germanic root that meant “crooked.” Around the 15th century, it began to refer to a cut of pork derived from a pig’s hind leg.
Because of the preservation process, ham is a compound foodstuff or ingredient, consisting of the original meat and the remnants of the preserving agent(s), such as salt, but it is still recognized as a food in its own right.
Liver: One of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet is liver. It has high levels of folate, iron, vitamin B, vitamin A, and copper. A single serving of liver can help you meet your daily recommended amount of all of these vitamins and minerals, lowering your chances of nutrient deficiency.
Some people love the strong flavor of liver while others don’t. Many different animals’ livers are consumed around the world, so you can find beef, chicken, pork, lamb, and goose liver in butcher shops and grocery stores across the country.
Liver has gone through phases of popularity as a kitchen staple, and it’s finally making a comeback.
Eggs: Eggs are a versatile and important cooking ingredient, and their chemical make-up is crucial to many important baking reactions. The most common type of egg is chicken, but more gourmet options include duck, goose, and quail.
Most healthy adults can eat 1–2 eggs per day, depending on how much other cholesterol they consume. If you already have high cholesterol or other risk factors for heart disease, limit yourself to 4–5 eggs per week.
How to Prepare Fried Rice with Ham, Liver and Eggs
Use cooked, chilled rice to make this fried rice recipe. Any type of white or brown rice will suffice. Just make sure it’s cooked and thoroughly chilled in a sealed container in the refrigerator before adding it to your pot or pan.
Freshly cooked rice, once again, will not work well in this recipe. The eggs would add a lot of flavor, texture, and protein to the dish.
