FAT ALERT! FAT ALERT! You can just imagine the sirens if some moron invented a fire alarm type contraption that could sense when unbelievably rich and fat laden dishes being cooked in your kitchen. It would definitely go off with this one. Marketman’s Fried Rice with X.O. sauce and garlic chips. Egads. I thought I died and went culinary heaven. So easy, so flavorful and yes, so calorific. Place several tablespoons of X.O. sauce in a wok or frying pan and turn the heat up to high. When the sauce starts to sizzle, add some cooked rice and mix well, adding a bit of water if it looks a tad dry. Add some fried garlic chips and serve hot. Omigod. :)
BettyQ’s X.O. sauce is so versatile, she suggests that you can use it not only in fried rice, but as a dipping sauce or condiment for Hainanese Chicken Rice or even steamed dumplings with some soy sauce, as a flavoring ingredient when you stir fry chinese vegetables, etc. And if you are feeling invincible, just take a nice hot cup or two of boiled rice and place a couple of tablespoons of X.O. sauce on top of it and go ahed and dig in… yum. I sent this sauce to several folks and the reactions texted back to me ranged from “I am making fried rice immediately,” to “I ate it three days in a row!”… We still have some in our freezer that we take out and thaw whenever the X.O. feeling sets in. Thank you again, BettyQ!
