  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 cups sliced shiitake mushroom
  • 1 cup chopped asparagus
  • 3 scallions, cut 2-inch long

  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon minced ginger
  • ½ tablespoon minced garlic


    1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a 10-inch cast iron skillet over high heat, sauté mushrooms, scallions and asparagus until golden, 5 minutes. Remove to a plate; set aside.
    2. In the same skillet, add remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add eggs; scramble until medium firm. Add rice; toss well. Press down to get your rice crispy and golden brown on all sides, about 3-4 minutes.
