Quick Chinese Fried Rice

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by Simplifying Things

This was simple and satisfying! No, it isn't the restaurant kind but it is tasty in itself. I beat the egg and cooked it in the butter and then removed it b/4 adding the onion and rice. Be sure to really brown the rice and onion nicely. Then I added the cooked egg, which I chopped up, back into the pan. If I had had some leftover meat or shrimp, that would have really added to the flavor.
