Just love Fried Rice so I tried to create from a restaurant that we go to often. In a pinch you can use canned peas and carrots (drained). You could also try adding some diced ham and green onions.

  • 3 cups cooked white rice (day old or leftover rice works best!)
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrot (thawed)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 14 cup soy sauce


  1. On medium high heat, heat the oil in a large skillet or wok.
  2. Add the peas/carrots, onion and garlic.
  3. Cook until tender about 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Lower the heat to medium low and push the mixture off to one side, then pour your eggs on the other side of skillet and cook until scrambled.
  5. Now add the rice and soy sauce and blend all together well.
  6. Stir fry until thoroughly heated.

Awesome fried rice!!!! I made this as written, although in a scaled back version to 1/3 of the original amount. This is so flavorful, so much more flavor then the normal fried rice recipes. The only thing I would change next time is to not add the garlic and add some smoke flavor, in order to get the fried rice that I tasted from a Chinese Restaurant (from the Outback Restaurant Group that was the best I have ever had) but can't remember the name. You have a great recipe here!!! Thanks so much Douglas Poe. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
