2 eggs

1 teaspoon MSG (optional)

1/8 teaspoon groung white pepper

1/4 cup soy sauce

4 cups cooked rice

4 scallions, chopped, including green ends

2 cups diced cooked pork, ham, chicken, shrimp, or any meat

1 slice ginger, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)

1/4 cup vegetable oil


  Put first four ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir slightly;

 the eggs should not be well beaten.

 Heat wok or pan hot and dry. Add the oil. Brown the garlic and

 ginger slightly, then add the rice. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring

 to break up lumps and coat with oil. Add the rest of the ingredients

 except the egg mixture. Fry and stir constantly until thoroughly

 mixed. Add the egg mixture while stirring the rice so it will cover

 as much of the ingredients in the pan as possible. Cook about

 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Serve while hot.
