How to Make Garlic Fried Rice


  • 1Heat a skillet large enough to hold the rice over medium heat. When it's hot, add oil and swirl it around. Add garlic and saute in oil until it becomes fragrant (under 20 seconds). Be careful that the garlic doesn't burn -- if it starts to color at all, add the rice right away (it'll stop the garlic from burning). Cook for 5-7 minutes until rice is nicely toasted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
