Ingredients:  
2 c. uncooked long-grain white rice
4 c. water
1 tbsp. sesame oil
2 tbsp. vegetable oil (If you REALLY like sesame oil, use 3 tbsp. and no vegetable oil)
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1-2 c. cubed ham (you can also use shrimp, chicken, or a combination of all 3)
Diced veggies or peas (optional)
3 eggs, beaten
soy sauce

Directions:
Directions:
Cook rice according to package directions (with long-grain white rice it is usually 2 c. rice to 4 c. water.. but if for some reason your package directions are different, cook it accordingly). We actually prefer using a rice cooker, it always turns out perfectly. Heat sesame oil and vegetable oil in a LARGE skillet over medium-high heat and stir in onion. When onions become clear and light brown, add garlic. When garlic is lightly browned, add ham and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until ham is nice and hot. Add veggies (optional) and cook until veggies are tender. Stir in beaten egg and cook until egg is scrambled and firm. When rice is done, add to skillet and mix in thoroughly. Stir in soy sauce (we use just enough to get it LIGHT brown, you don't want to add to much... remember, you can always add more later when it's on your plate, but you can't take it away if you use too much!) Serve immediately.
