1/2 C Round onion, chopped
1 tsp Garlic, minced
1 tsp Ginger, minced
1 can Sliced button mushrooms, drained (6 oz.)
1 tsp Hum ha (Chinese shrimp sauce)
2 Tbsp Oyster sauce
2 Eggs (hard scrambled, folded, sliced)
2~3 stalks Green onions, sliced thin
1 Tbsp Vegetable oil
Cooking Instructions
In a big non-stick skillet or wok heat oil. Add onions, ginger & garlic, stir-fry ~1 min. Add meat & stir-fry ~1 min. Add hum ha & stir-fry 30 sec. (going be stink!) Add rice & mushrooms, stir-fry 2~3 min., constantly mixing up everything. Add oyster sauce & stir-fry 2~3 min. more or until heated through while continuing to mix (adding more oil if too dry). Add green onions & egg, stirring to mix through. Remove from heat & serve.
Serving Suggestions:
Learned this way from my mom. Grew up eating only hum ha fried rice. Thought it was the only way fried rice tasted. But if you no like hum ha, eliminate the ingredient & cooking step.

Meats could be any kind diced up leftovers... teriyaki beef, shoyu chicken, roast beef, steak, etc. Other stuff includes char siu, roast pork, lup cheong, Portuguese sausage (like at Mililani Restaurant), even shrimp (small cocktail shrimp & char siu is good). Anything works! One restaurant, Dynasty I on Ala Moana, makes it with hum nyee, that's the Chinese salted dried fish, my favorite (little bit stink!). Can also add green peas, diced carrots, chopped cabbage, whatever you get leftover or have around.

Best rice to use is the long grain kind, it doesn't get as mushy as the Calrose kind, but no really matter.
Additional Comments
I used to make for office parties & the first time I made it, everybody complained about my stinking up the office with the smell. But after eating it the first time, the folks always requested it again and again, no matter about the smell. Some guys used to ask me to put plenty in! Just tastes real good!
