Delicious Homemade Fried Rice

Cindy Conway


I have made this for years and it is the best. I got it out of a cookbook of Chinese recipes. I've added shrimp or chicken and is really easy if you get everything ready ahead of time because it cooks quickly. The trick is make rice in the morning, then use the cold rice for making the dish.

1Cook rice ahead of time so it is cold for making this dish. Beat 2 eggs with 1/4 tsp salt in small bowl. Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in wok or large skillet over medium heat 1 minute. Pour in beaten eggs, stirring continuously until eggs are cooked dry and separated into small pieces. Remove and set aside.
