Cook the rice:
1 Cook the rice:

Remove the ghee from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. 

Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
2 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Stack the prosciutto (removing the plastic lining between the slices), then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the snow peas crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; roughly chop the leaves and stems. Crack the egg into a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Beat until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy glaze and vinegar

Crisp the prosciutto:
3 Crisp the prosciutto:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced prosciutto and cook, stirring frequently and breaking apart any clumps, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly crispy. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer the crisped prosciutto to a paper towel-lined plate. 

Cook the vegetables & egg:
4 Cook the vegetables & egg:

In the pan of reserved fond, heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the halved snow peas; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the chopped garlic and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped bok choy; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Using a spoon, move the vegetables to one side of the pan. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the other side, then add the beaten egg. Cook, constantly stirring the egg, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until cooked through. Stir the vegetables and egg to thoroughly combine. Transfer to a large bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

In the same pan, heat the ghee on medium-high until melted. Add the cooked rice in an even layer and cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly crispy. Turn off the heat and stir in the sauce. Transfer the fried rice and crisped prosciutto to the bowl of cooked vegetables and egg; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished fried rice garnished with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
