Mazzou's New Year's Eve Fried Rice dish

Mazzou's Aromatic Fried Rice:

   I created this Asian rice dish based off of Mollie Katzen's aromatic fried rice recipe in The Enchanted Broccoli Forest! We love to eat it for New Year's Eve along with homemade cabbage rolls and egg roll filling, sweet and sour chicken bites and more!

2 cups raw brown rice cooked in 3 cups water (with butter and salt to taste) until done- 20-30 minutes

Spice mixture:
1/2 cup pre-cooked unflavored sausage or ground beef
(or: tiny sausage or ground beef meatballs seasoned with below mentioned scallions, ginger, garlic and salt to taste)
1/2 cup wine vinegar
8 minced scallions
3-4 slices ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed
Salt to taste

1 Tablespoon peanut oil
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
2 large clove garlic, crushed
1 heaping teaspoon freshly minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/4/ to 1/2 cup white wine (to taste)
2 beaten eggs
1 large carrot, grated (shredded)
Plenty of black pepper!
3/4 cup chopped toasted cashews
Sesame oil, for serving

Steam rice.
Combine spice mixture and cooked meat in a small bowl; set aside.
Heat the oil in a wok or large heavy skillet. Saute the sesame seeds, garlic and ginger with the salt over medium heat for 3 minutes.
Add the celery and stir-fry for another 6-7 minutes.
Add the wine, and stir-fry for a few more minutes.
Add the rice and continue stir-frying a few minutes.
Add the sausage/spice mixture and the beaten eggs.
Mix in the grated carrot last, so as to not over-cook the carrots.
Stir-fry until everything is heated through and eggs are set.
Serve hot topped with the toasted cashews and drizzled with extra sesame oil.
