*Any cooked leftover meat will do nicely as well. Use about 1 cup.
Separate any clumps in the cold rice. Set aside.
In a very large skillet, saute pan or wok, heat oil over high heat.
Add eggs and scramble, breaking up into smaller pieces. Cook until firm. Remove from pan and set aside.
Brown ground beef, garlic, 2 tbs soy sauce, ginger and sherry well over high heat in the same pan used for the eggs. When there is no liquid or fat left from the meat, that is when it is properly browned and cooked. Remove and discard the slice of ginger.
Add the rice to the same pan as the meat, stirring to combine and heat the rice (use high heat here too).
Add the soy sauce, sesame oil, cooked eggs, sugar and *half* of the green onions. Add more soy sauce to taste if needed. Stir fry until heated through. Serve immediately and top with remaining green onion.
Serves 6-8 as a main meal.
