Yummy fried rice. I changed the recipe up a bit; omitted the meat because I used it as a side dish and added 1/4 cup of soy sauce instead of the gravy master. I also added a 3 drops each of soy sauce and sesame oil to the eggs before frying them up. Made by a fellow Unruly / ZWT6

I perked this recipe up a little and it was quite tasty, I added about a tablespoon of teryaki sauce, and about 2 tsp of soy sauce. I also added about 1/2 cup of frozen peas just near the end and cooked until they thawed and were warm, It was quite good, I will make it again. This recipe could be considered a good base recipe, to add your favorite ingredients, such as mushrooms, etc... Thanks Ellie!
