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.
This is simple and quick, and is always a hit with my family. Not your traditional fried rice, but really good in and of itself. We love it!
*Reviewed for ZWT6 Whine and Cheese Gang* Cooked this in no time and we enjoyed it as a side dush to Grilled Sweet-And-Sour Chicken Packets. Giving 5 stars as this was a tasty quick recipe. Not a traditional Chinese fried rice but real tasty and quick. I cooked the egg in the pan first, removed it, sliced and returned to the cooked rice just before serving. Using a gluten-free soy sauce this makes an easy gluten-free rice dish. Photo also to be posted.
I just made this rice with some chicken egg rolls for dinner. It was a last minute decision so I chose your recipe for the ease and speed of it. I should have doubled the recipe! My daughter ate it like she would never ever see rice again. (she adores rice of any kind) Only one little change and that was just because it seemed like it would go so well with the recipe. I had to follow my instincts and added about 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger to the mix as it was cooking. It turned out excellent and I will certainly use your recipe again. Probably everytime we do Oriental now. Thanks for a great addition to our meal.
Definitely not traditional fried rice but tastes pretty good. I used leftover rice that I had from a previous meal and added some chopped chives from our garden.
This was a nice recipe to use if you're in a hurry. The flavor was lovely and complimented the Japanese Chicken Drumettes that I also prepared. Made for X-tra Hot Dishes, ZWT 6
This gets 5 stars simply for ease of preparation and flavor. To me it doesn't really taste restaurant quality, but what homemade Chinese food ever does? The whole family loves the flavor so that's what's important! The only thing I do different is I usually use leftover rice and use onion powder instead of "real" onion :)
What an easy recipe for fried rice! DH and I have tried numerous recipes at home but have never been able to achieve the right consistency or flavor in comparison to the take-out version. The only variation I made was omitting the extra 1/3 cup water at the end and simmering for five minutes, as I thought it would make the rice too moist. DH and I like a little "bite" to our rice. :) Thanks for sharing!
We enjoyed this recipe. I added mushrooms and peas. Thanks for sharing.
I made this recipe for the first time tonight, and it was great! It was so good, that I actually took the time to review it! The only changes I did was I used real rice, not minute rice, added more eggs, and more veggies. Definetely recommend!
