Cantonese Fried Rice

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Debs Recipes

This delicious fried rice is a nice change of pace for leftover meat and veggies. It's good made with your choice of ham, pork, or grilled chicken. I like to put the rice together early in the day then simply reheat it at suppertime. It's already-tasty flavor seems to only improve with time!

Fabulous recipe. I added more vegies & doubled everything to make meals for during the week. My hubby normally doesn't like my fried rice, but really enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing this recipe Deb.
