Want fried rice quickly and without a lot of fuss? Then, the rice cooker is the way to go. Only a little prep is needed to make this a stellar side dish. Add precooked chicken or shrimp and serve with potstickers or egg rolls for a meal.
- 1 1⁄2 cups rice
- 2 1⁄2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup water chestnut, sliced
- 1 cup mixed mushrooms
- 1 cup bean sprouts
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1⁄2 tablespoon red chili paste (optional)
- 2 carrots, diced
- 1⁄2 onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Melt the butter over medium heat in a medium-sized skillet. Add onion and carrot and stir until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add rice and cook another 5 minutes until browned.
- Add rice mixture and remaining ingredients (except egg) to rice cooker. Set to cook.
- Beat egg in small bowl. Wipe out sauce pan and cook egg on medium low heat. Chop egg and set aside.
- When rice is done, add egg and stir, then let sit for 5-10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
I love the simplicity of this recipe...so easy and tasty. The texture is different then fried rice made with cold rice however; the taste is almost spot on. However next time I will add a bit more more soy sauce, and I will add the cut carrot directly to the rice cooker as it got a little too mushy. Made and reviewed for the Best of 2010 Recipe Tag Game.
This is a great recipe...easy and tasty. Just be sure you have a large rice cooker. It was too much for my little one, but it worked just fine in a saucepan. Made for ZWT #6 and I'm a Quisine Queen!
