Aburamushi Rice

Peanut Fried Rice


Cooked Japanese rice
1-4 eggs
Peanut butter
Peanut sauce
Peanut oil
Unsalted peanuts
Soy sauce (optional)


Stir the raw eggs into the rice. You may want to go one egg at a time until you reach the right consistency. Add a dash of soy sauce if you like.

Mix peanut butter into the eggy rice until the rice turns a nice shade of brown.

Sprinkle the unsalted peanuts into the rice and mix in well.

Stir-fry the rice in the peanut oil. (If you don't want to carry the peanut theme all the way through, you can use another kind of oil.) The rice is done when all of the egg is cooked.

Take the rice off the heat and mix in the peanut sauce to taste. The spices in the sauce degrade quickly, especially in heat, so don't cut corners and add the sauce before you fry. If any appreciable period of time is going to pass between making the rice and eating it, you might want to hold off on adding the sauce now and add it right before you eat the rice.

And you're done! This is called aburamushi rice because the fried peanuts look like little aburamushi. (No, I'm not going to translate.) It has about a zillion calories per serving, but every single one of them is worth it.
