I've made this twice: once as written and once with peas instead of green beans. I also omitted the garlic and the green onion garnish. I'm still not sure which way to make "horizontal" cuts on green beans. This is fine for a week night dinner but nothing special.
Ham and Egg Fried Rice

This was a nice weeknight dinner. I used leftover honey-glazed ham from Christmas - the sweetness of the ham was a nice touch. I subbed frozen peas for the green beans, and omitted the green onion. Served with chicken egg rolls and stir fried vegetables.

Great recipe. I used brown rice instead of white. I cooked the brown rice in chicken broth - fantastic! I followed the recipe and it came out perfectly! Wonderful!

I love fried rice and this recipe is a great starter. I appreciate the crispy green beans in the end. I usually skip the eggs though. I use day old cooked rice for easily fried rice capabilities. Great as a side or main course. Cheers!

This was good, better the next day reheated as lunch at work. The first day it seemed kind of greasy, but that was gone the next day. I also think I put in too much sesame oil, for that was really strong. Had this was Trader Joe's egg rolls for a complete meal. Will make again at some point, but won't rush back to it any time soon.

We love this recipe and use our leftover brown rice & extra vegies we have in the refrigerator.

I thought this was very good. I used a bunch of different veggies I had around and reduced the soy sauce, but all around a great recipe. I will make it again, especially with left over ham!

For some reason every time I attempt fried rice it turns out mushy and I can't figure out why. Aside from this which I think is a user flaw, for leftover holiday ham it's a great recipe. Although I'd double it if you want leftovers :-)

Wow, great recipe! Excellent results at home when I made it. I just replaced the ham by some Spanish iberico de bellota ham, also called black hoof or pata negra for an improved and more refine taste. Definitely one recipe to keep on my cooking book.

I topped mine with nonfat cottage cheese and it was incredible! With that addition, it adds a little bit of creaminess and all the flavors work together. I know I will make this again.

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. I've tried other fried rice recipes and not cared for them - this one is a WINNER! I did use egg substitute and it worked beautifullly. Also subsituted turkey for the ham. It also worked just fine.

Made this with leftover Easter Ham. Definitely need to use a wok for this one. The rice gets a nice crunchiness in spots. I used snow peas instead of green beans. Great use of leftovers.
