  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • One 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • 3/4 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, caps sliced
  • 6 cups coarsely chopped curly kale leaves (about half of a medium bunch)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups day-old cooked short-grain white rice
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

How to make this recipe

  1. In a wok or very large skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil. Add the ginger, scallions and 
a pinch of salt. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring constantly, until the ginger and scallions are tender, about 2 minutes. Add the sliced shiitakes and a generous pinch of salt and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the kale, season with salt and stir-fry until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add the cooked rice and stir-fry until heated through, about 3 minutes.

  2. Make a well in the rice and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. When the oil is shimmering, add the eggs. Cook without stirring until the eggs begin to set at the edge. Using a spatula, scramble the eggs until just set. Stir the eggs into the rice along with the vinegar and oyster sauce and season with salt. Serve immediately.
