This was great. I have never been able to make good fried rice and I think I found a great recipe to stick with. It did seem to be missing a little something, I think I might add a little garlic or something next time I make it, but it was wonderful just the same. I am a huge Pork Fried Rice junkie. I order it for lunch at least twice a week when I'm at work (the girl at the counter always laughs at me and asks if I want "my usual".) The best thing about this recipe is it has all the things I miss about fried rice I used to get in Minnesota. I have yet to find a recipe that adds anything more than peas, carrots and onions to it's fried rice here in Columbia Missouri. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper!
Great as is, but I did make a couple of changes:
I added some garlic powder (not salt), bumped up the soy and used short grain Asian rice (CalRose style). I cooked the rice in my rice cooker and threw it into the freezer in a ziplock for an hour to cool it off. It probably could've been colder, but it worked.
As we're not huge bean sprouts and mushroom fans here in my house, I pan-sauteed diced finely-diced fresh carrots and chopped fresh broccoli.
The leftovers are completely gone, which is highly unusual in our home!
few ingredients, easy, and good flavor - a great throw together meal with remnants in the cupboards!
