I made a batch of this for my bento lunches and I am so happy I did! The flavour is fantastic...my kids and my husband started eating it straight out of the wok. I had to tell them it was for future lunches. The success of this recipe truly relies on using sesame oil and a top quality soy sauce. I prefer Kikkoman as I've found it to be the best flavour.
I added shredded carrots, mushrooms and a few bean sprouts. I now have the perfect fried rice recipe...thanks for posting, Kittencal!! Another winner from you. :)
This was a great aned easy recipe. I made this last night and my husband said it was better than the rice we get in the chinese restaurant. I put frozen peas in the rice. Next time I'll add left over chicken or beef to the recipe along with diced carrots.. I used the sesame oil its a must what terrific flavor it gave the rice. I will be using this recipe alot.
Yummie!! Really good and really easy. When i finished the rice I added chicken, shredded cabbage, sugarsnaps and bellpeper (from wok) and instead of soyasaus I used some homemade teriyaki sauce that was leftover.. Tasty and a kidpleaser too, very important ;o), thanks Kittencal
This rice was really good, and the recipe was easy too follow. I added a little hot mustard in mine, and it was really tasty. Thanks for posting!
Add me to the believers of this recipe. I could never get fried rice right and didn't often try because of it. Thanks for this great recipe! The only thing I changed - I diced chicken (about 1.25 pounds), 1 can of water chestnuts, sliced a cup or so of cabbage and a tiny onion, and marinated it in stir fry sauce an hour or two before cooking. I made for 12 (entree portions) and it fed 6 adults a dog with a bit left over. I prepared 2 cups of dry rice and the ratio turned out well. It was a super lot of egg which was fine by me but if you are not all too fond of the egg in fried rice, I wold suggest cutting it in half.
We love the versatility of this recipe! I have used this as both a side and a main dish, depending on what I have on hand to add. My favorite is peas and baby shrimp. Thanks Kittencal for another winner!
Don't know why I haven't rated this. I have been making it on a regular basis for quite some time now. This is simply the best! The fried rice takeout we've had doesn't even begin to compare. Thanks Kitten!
I did not realize how easy fried rice could be. It tasted even better than take out. I did saute diced carrots with the onions. This would be a snap if you have leftover rice! Thank you for posting Kittencal.
Delicious !! I cut the recipe in half since we were only 2. I had some leftover rice from the day before. I added a few drops of sesame oil and your right it is great with it. I love green onions and peas in my fried rice it adds such a great flavor. I could make this a meal in itself. Thanks so much again Kitten for sharing.
This is a really good fried rice recipe. I doubled the egg as my family really likes it. I made this to go along with some Asian beef ribs and it went perfectly. I will continue to make your rice recipe, its easy and tastes really good. Thank you for sharing, we loved it
