After working at our favorite Chinese restaurant for 6 years, this is our favorite converted home recipe.
It is very versitile, you can add or change almost any ingredient to adapt to any taste or diet requirement.
I always give out copies of the recipe when I take it to pot lucks, as it is good warm as well as fresh.
It keeps up to 6 days in the fridge. Reheat in pan or micro, adding a bit more soy to moisten.

How to Make Fried Rice


  • 1While rice is steaming using your favorite method, (or use leftover cold rice) cook meat/bacon, use leftovers or go vegetarian. Place frozen peas in warm/hot water to thaw. Slice green onions. Scramble eggs with spices to taste.
  • 2Heat wok or large dutch oven with canola or olive oil, also peanut oil works well.
    Add steamed or cold rice and stir to break clumps, heat through, and coat w/oil.
    Add soy sauce and stir to coat, breaking up lumps. If I use cold rice, sometimes I warm the soy sauce in the micro for a minute before adding. When coated to suit you, add scrambled eggs, 1 Cup sliced onions, your choice of cubed cooked meat, and drained peas, stirring to mix and heat.
    Serve with remaining onions as garnish.
