Heat the oil in a braising pan, steam jacketed kettle, or stockpot then add the onions. Sauté the onions for 3 to 5 minutes.


Combine all of the eggs, then slightly mix them. Add the eggs to the onions.
Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 10 -15 minutes, or until eggs are tender and set.

Thaw the peas and carrots.

Chop the thawed carrots and combine them with the thawed peas, onions, eggs, rice, and soy sauce.

Divide mixture evenly among the steamtable pans of rice.


Pour 3 quarts of hot water over each pan of rice. Cover the pans with a lid or aluminum foil.

Follow the instructions for steamer or combi-oven. Steam for approximately 45 minutes or until rice is tender and fluffy. Check the rice at 30 minutes of cooking time for chicken stock absorption. If additional liquid is needed, add water.
