Benihana Fried Rice

I have made this copy of Benihanas fried rice from Running in Stilettos many times, I don't know why I never posted it until now. The original recipe is made with chicken and we have made it that way and also with shrimp.  This time though I needed to use up some leftover char siu pork, which made for a delicious fried rice.

2 oz cooked chicken (I used pork this time)
8 oz cooked rice
2 eggs
2 tbsp onion, chopped
2 tbsp carrot, chopped
2 tbsp green onion, chopped
2 tbsp peas
1 tsp sesame seed
3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 tsp sesame oil
Sesame seeds
Salt and pepper

Scramble eggs in a small pan, set aside.

Stir fry the vegetables, ginger and garlic for a few minutes.  Add the meat and scrambled eggs and stir together.  Add the rice, sesame seeds, soy sauce, butter, sesame oil and salt and pepper, stir fry for another few minutes.
