I have literally made this dozens of times over the last couple of years, no longer have to measure because I know it off by heart & if I have rice cooked I can whip it up in no time and it is very versatile. I have been to thailand twice and this is very close to what I have over there. and these are the changes I have been using. I quite often make it with or without chicken, egg, tofu or even mushrooms. I almost always 1-2 cups of beanshoots and don't use any sugar. It is quite nice with brown rice too but then benefits from some sugar, pineapple is nice w the brown rice. I also love to add some diagnally sliced green beans and sometimes chopped peanuts, chilli flakes or tomato sauce. This is also a delicious base to use with noodles and vegies etc instead of rice.

I added Thai Basil (chopped and stir fried) and fresh cilantro at the end (chopped); also i seasoned the chicken and shrimp with some mushroom soy sauce, garlic and cayenne before sauteing. So yummy!

Amazing! Here were my adjustments: brown rice instead of white, using 3 cups of rice and replacing it with 1 cup of diced onion and carrot, plus swapping chicken for ground pork. So delicious and easy!

This is awesome! I've been trying fried rice for some time now and have finally found this recipe that tastes as good as any restaurant. I've made it as pad thai (rice noodles) and it works out just as good.

OH MY Goodness.... absolutely delicious! Thanks so much for posting. I made egg pancakes separately and almost forgot to add them. Also, I didn't add any meat... incredible. I'm moving to brown rice and discovered jasmine brown rice and will try that next time. YUM!!!

A wonderful version of Thai fried rice! I didn't rinse the rice before cooking so when it was done and cooled, it was VERY sticky from the residual starch. But breaking it up as best you can by hand when cold and then stirring like mad (but gently all the same) while frying left me with a *perfectly* fluffy rice dish, one that I'll return to repeatedly. Something I didn't know before... oyster sauce smells HORRIBLE right from the container, but changes into something magical after cooking. :o) I served this with Thai-Style Chicken With Basil (Cook's Illustrated). Thanks to you and your mom for the great recipe, shimmerchk!
