Shrimp Fried Rice

This one doesn’t have the “Bachelor” tag on it because I haven’t tried making it yet. My wife, “Jacque” made it yesterday and it was wonderful. I have looked at it and I think it’s a bachelor-proof recipe so I posted it. If it proves as easy as it looks when I make it, it’ll get the tag.

1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice
3 cups water
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup fresh bean sprouts
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cups cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined without tail
1/4 cup chopped green onion
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil

In a saucepan bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Set aside and allow rice to cool.

Heat a large skillet or wok for 2 minutes. When the skillet or wok is hot, pour in vegetable oil, bean sprouts and onions. Mix well and cook for 3 minutes.

Mix in cooled rice and shrimp and cook for another 3 minutes. Stirring constantly.

Mix in green onions, eggs, salt, pepper, soy sauce and sesame oil. Cook for another 4 minutes, stirring continuously, until eggs are cooked and everything is blended evenly.
