How to Make Fried Rice Chinese Restaurant Style
- Add remaining oil and heat over high heat until very hot. Add cold rice and stir to coat every grain. Add chicken stock a bit at a time to give the rice a chance to soak up the liquid. Add much just enough stock the rice will soak up the flavor- you do not want it sticky.
- Stir fry , stirring constantly until there is no liquid left, then chop up the egg mixture and add it, along with the soy sauce and salt. Stir. You can add more or less soy sauce and salt according to you taste.
- The secret is to use cold al dente cooked rice and to cook the eggs and add-ins separate;then add them in later. Be sure to let the rice soak up the chicken stock , but do not let the rice become sticky.
Enjoy- this is the best homemade fried rice you will ever make.
