  1. Heat 2 tablespoons canola oil in a large wok or frying pan over high heat. Add meat and flash-fry for 2 minutes, until nearly cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in the same pan over high heat. Crack an egg into the pan and scramble it for 1 minute, until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
    In the same pan, place rice, bell peppers, and spring onions and sauté for 2-3 minutes, until vegetables have softened. Stir in meat and sauté for another 2 minutes.
  3. Add chili oil with black bean, chili oil, soy sauce (or tamari), sugar, and salt and sauté for 1 minute, until rice grains are loose and separated. (If rice is clumpy, flatten with a spatula. If rice appears dry or sticks to the pan, sprinkle with a little water.) Add chiles and toss. Transfer to a platter and serve.
