Definitely a five star recipe. I used salami instead of ham, because that was all I had at the moment, and it came out delicious. If you are a big fan of Chinese food and would't mind cooking in your own kitchen, you should give it a go. By the way, chow fan (fun) is how Chinese say fried rice. Happy Cooking :)

Add mushrooms, cover and steam 2 more minutes.

Remove mixture to a large bowl.

Add remaining oil to wok, reduce heat to low and add ginger and garlic.

When ready to serve, reheat in a wok or large pot.

Stir in snow peas and cook two minutes.

Make a well in the center of the wok and stir in the beaten eggs.
