    Nana Lee's Note:

    You can then add whatever other ingredients you like. There are so many versions of fried rice it would be impossible to post them all. So, use this as your basis and add what is used in your area of the country. I personally do NOT like peas or carrots in my fried rice but, I DO like some bean sprouts, onion and meat in mine. Now that I have a rice cooker (WOO HOO!!!!) I'll be having this more often. Source: Chinese Recipes by Stephen Yan 5th Edition

The specific name is called when a specific kind of ingredient, mostly meat is added to the basic fried rice. Fried rice can be made ahead of time and kept warm in oven. It freezes well in deep freeze too." - Stephen Yan.

      What a wonderful recipe! I had 2 servings and packaged the rest in 2 freezer bags to have on hand when I want more. I made the basic recipe as is and may add to the leftovers when I thaw them. Very tasty and a great side dish made as is. Made for Unrated Asian Tag game.
