Add the rice and toss with the ingredients in the wok to coat all with the oil
Add the peas and push everything to one side of the pan

Quickly pour the eggs into the cleared side and allow to make a flat omelet - cook the omelet until the eggs are dry, then break up into bits with the spatula

Mash up the black beans a bit, then add the beans, soy, sesame oil, and fish sauce and toss well to combine
Turn off the heat, Add the scallions and the chicken stock, and cover for 5 minutes
