3 Tbsp butter, divided
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 large carrot, peeled and cubed
1 small white onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
4–5 cups rice, preferably long-grain (jasmine or basmati), cooked and chilled
1 cup frozen peas
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup soy sauce, plus more to taste
2 tsp sesame oil
3 tsp oyster sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat a large skillet or wok to medium heat. Add 1 tbsp. of butter to the pan. Once melted, pour in the lightly beaten eggs and let them cook for about 30-40 seconds or until set, then scramble. Once fully cooked, remove and set aside.
Add the remaining butter to the pan. When hot, add the carrot and onion, cooking until tender. Next, add the garlic and cook until fragrant, taking care not to brown.
Turn the heat up slightly and add the cold rice and peas. Cook the mixture for about 3-4 minutes (it will sizzle and should brown a bit).
Add the eggs, green onions, soy sauce, sesame oil, and oyster sauce. Cook for a few more minutes or until the mixture is hot. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
