Spray a large skillet or wok with cooking spray over medium-high heat.
Add the eggs and scramble until cooked through, then remove to a plate.
Pour the oil into the wok, then add the peppers and onions, cooking until softened about 7-8 minutes.
Add the cabbage to the wok and toss to combine with the peppers and onions. Cook until the cabbage has wilted about 3-4 minutes.
Next add the cooked rice, corned beef, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, soy sauce and scrambled eggs to the wok and toss to combine.
