Beef Fried Rice

I came up with recipe by experimenting—and it's become a family favorite. I often add whatever vegetables and seasonings I have on hand.—Cathy Wadden, Hamilton Ontario

    Hubby said it was okay. He dislikes celery, onions & mushrooms, so I shelled sugar snap peas into the sauteing carrots. I forgot to use ginger & omitted the scrambled eggs. Added 1/3 cup beef broth before the soy sauce. He originally pronounced it to be 'vulture vomit' but ate 3 bowls. It is economical.

    I used 3 leftover hamburgers from a camping trip. (chopped them into cubes)For veggies, I used garlic, carrots, broccoli and onions - what I had on hand.I didn't use the soy sauce, put it on the table but no one used it.Tasted great.
