I just love fried rice! Every time I make it I always say, "this time it's the best!" I guess each time it is a bit different because I tend to add what I have in the fridge! This is a very forgiving recipe and really is just a guide line.
I liked the addition of avocado, lime juice and cilantro this time! Cant wait for lunch!

Stove Top

Ingredients

6 c
cooked brown rice
1/2 bag(s)
frozen green veggie
left over cubed meat
1/2
red onion-chopped
1
avocado-cubed
2
eggs-beaten
coconut oil
soy sauce
garlic
cumin
sesame seeds
lime juice
fresh cilantro for garnish
green onion for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make a big pot of brown rice following packaging directions. I make it a day or two before so the grains are nice and separate for frying. I used about 6 cups in this recipe but you can use more or less.
2
Heat up some coconut oil in a frying pan. When melted add the chopped onion and garlic and fry for a bit until fragrant.
3
Dump in the cooked rice and stir to coat all the grains with the oil.
4
Now add your left over meat. I usually use pork roast but you can use anything you like.
5
When the meat is heated through add the vegetables. I used broccoli this time but my favorite is peas. If you want to use fresh veggies, probably cook them first or stir fry with the onion in the first step.
6
Push everything in the skillet to the edges so you have an open space in the middle of the pan. Add a little more coconut oil if there is no liquid flowing in to the center.
7
Pour in the beaten eggs and after they are somewhat set, break them up and stir into the rice. Once again push all to the edges. (maybe a little more oil again)
8
Put the sesame seeds and cumin in the center and fry again until toasted. Add a splash of lime juice and some soy sauce. Incorporate everything together once again. Taste to make sure there is enough soy sauce flavor.
9
Stir in avocado and top with green onions and cilantro for garnish if desired.
