Delicious! This is a great recipe...easy to modify to fit your personal taste as well as for using up leftovers. I used cold brown rice (cooked the day before in rice cooker with a bit of olive oil), and added in some leftover mushrooms [URL=http://www.recipezaar.com/36550]Sauteed Mushrooms[/URL] . To the mix, I also added frozen carrots (with the peas). I've made plenty of fried rice dishes over the years, but never with brown rice--let's just say I'm a convert now...it was delicious! Also really love the nutty flavor the oriental seasoning sesame oil imparts (I used Imperial Dragon brand). Thanks for the awesome recipe. (Even my toddler requested seconds!!)
Good way to use leftover ham. :) Since cold rice makes better fried rice, I made the rice the day before, cooking it as I normally do and without the butter. I did change the order of the cooking steps for two reasons. First, I wanted the rice a little "fried", rather than simply heated through, so I added it shortly after I added the onion to the pan. After I'd tossed it around a few minutes, I then added the rest of the ingredients, including the peas, and just heated through. I don't like green peas to be more than barely cooked, so this worked out better for my tastes. I also added quite a bit more soy sauce, but I was using a version that was relatively smooth and not overly salty. Anyway, we enjoyed this served as a simple meal with egg rolls. Thanks for posting!
Yum. So simple and so delicious. I didn't have any peas, but substituted frozen mixed veggies and we all thoroughly enjoyed the results. A great way to get my girls to eat veggies!!
This is absolutely yummy! I was so impressed with this recipe that I made it twice in a roll. It tasted just like the rice you get in an Oriental Restaurant. I am hooked!!! Its also easy to make and the ingredients are usually something I have on-hand. YUMMY!

This was good and simple. Used leftover rice i had and some chinese pork instead of ham, just my own preference. very good.
This recipe was good overall, but the amount of oil used could be drastically reduce IMHO. The ingredients are tasty but I didnt use as much oil as it asked for, because I dont like to use toooo much in my cooking. Very good recipe overall though. Thanks for the idea.. I'll make it again!
