Simple and delicious! Great use for leftover rice...add whatever else you like!
- 4 cups cooked rice (cold)
- 1 -2 tablespoon oil
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- drizzle sesame oil
- 1⁄3 cup soy sauce (low sodium)
- Add oil to skillet over high heat. When oil is hot add the cold rice and butter. Stir until butter melts and all of the rice has been coated. Add pepper and drizzle of sesame oil. Continue to cook over med-high heat and stir occasionally. (Here is where I would add veggies if you want them.) After about 5-8 minutes add soy sauce turn the heat down and mix well. Cook for another few minutes to heat through.
- I sample the rice throughout the cooking process to make sure it isn't getting crispy and that I have seasoned it enough. You may need to adjust your heat if your rice starts to get crunchy.
- If you do not have leftover rice, you can cook some up and put it on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for about 10-20 minutes -- works great!
This had way too much oil & butter. My rice didn't "fry" but instead was mushy. Also, way too much pepper. Now my stomach hurts and there is a distinct gastrointestinal smell from everyone who ate the rice.
