Heart Attack Fried Rice

Was introduced to this dish in Singapore where they used the oil from frying up steaks to make fried rice. Haven’t manage to come across this elsewhere so decided to make my own version. Be warned! It is a guilty treat!

Heart Attack Fried Rice

Ingredients (Serves 2 to 3)

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 large knobs butter (salted or unsalted works)
  • Olive oil (Extra virgin works well too)
  • 4 to 5 cloves of garlic, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon chicken stock powder
  • 2 teaspoon soya sauce
  • 1 teaspoon teriyaki sauce
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 300 to 400 gram steak (your favorite type and cut)
  • 1 medium bowl of overnight rice


  • Season the steak generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Make sure the steaks are allowed to come to room temperature before cooking
  • In a heavy pan over high heat, drizzle the olive oil and let the oil smoke
  • Sear the steak on one side, leave alone for at least 2 minutes to let the salt and pepper form a crust, before flipping to the other side
  • The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the steak, just remember the general rule that the softer the steak is when you press on it with your finger, the more rare it is
  • Remove when cooked to your desired liking and let rest for at least 5 minutes
  • Reduce to medium high heat and add the butter
  • When the butter has fully melted, add the chicken stock powder and garlic then saute for 1 to 2 minutes
  • Crack the eggs and stir well
  • Add the rice and incorporate the eggs fully into the rice
  • Add the soya sauce and teriyaki sauce and turn the heat to high
  • Stir well for another 2 minutes
  • Remove the rice
  • Slice the steak and serve with rice
  • Done!
