Turkey Fried Rice

Posted by moderndaygourmet on November 26, 2007

Another great Thanksgiving leftover recipe. I plan to try this with other leftover meat like chicken and pork as well. If you want to crank up the heat you can add another teaspoon of the chili garlic sauce. Also, we like our fried rice with egg in it, so I added a couple of eggs. Next time I will probably add 4 or so; 2 eggs isn’t much since this recipe makes a lot.

1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons Turkey Stock
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (such as Lee Kum Kee)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5 teaspoons canola oil
2 cups shredded green cabbage
1 cup sliced green onions
1 1/2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
5 cups cooked long-grain rice, chilled
4 cups chopped cooked turkey (light and dark meat)
2 cups leftover green peas or frozen peas, thawed
1 cup leftover carrots or frozen carrots, thawed
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until well blended.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add cabbage, onions, and ginger to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add rice, turkey, peas, and carrots; sauté 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Stir in soy mixture; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro.
