With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we will soon be gathering with loved ones for a holiday feast. Although traditional recipes reign on the holiday menu, leftover turkey offers endless culinary possibilities. This week, I will be sharing chef-inspired recipes -- along with a $100 gift card for one reader of A Little Loveliness -- from Fleming's Prime Steakhouse. For today's offering, enjoy the fusion of comfort and joy in Turkey Fried Rice.
Turkey Fried Rice
Makes 4 servings
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
1/4 yellow onion, finely chopped
2 small cloves garlic
2 stalks green onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked white or brown rice
4-5 ounces leftover turkey, chopped
4 tablespoons frozen peas, thawed
1 large egg, beaten
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Pinch black pepper
Heat sesame oil in a wok on high heat. Add red pepper, onion and rice, and saute until rice starts to get a bit crispy on the edges, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, green onion, and turkey, and cook for 2 minutes. Add peas and cook for 2 1/2 minutes, tossing all well.
Make a well in the center of wok, and add egg. Stir until cooked, breaking up into small pieces.
In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, Worcestershire, and black pepper. Stir into rice, and cook for 30 seconds. Serve warm.
