RECIPES–Sautéed Rice With Red Pepper, Sherry, And Basil

This is a simple, very tasty recipe.  The combination of the ingredients and the crisping of the rice make it particularly unique. The basil and the red pepper give it sweetness, the fish sauce adds a savory touch, and the egg adds color and an additional flavor.
