Yes, I have been in the kitchen making fried rice again! Fried rice is one of my favorites. The sesame seeds in this version offer a delicious nutty taste that makes this perfect to accompany Chinese stir-fries, Japanese teppanyaki, and Korean bulgoki. The use of brown rice should gain approval from those trying to cut carbs. Of course, they want it to be delicious, and I assure you that this is every bit as tasty as my fried rice (Chinese Fried Rice).
- 8 ounces diced cooked pork loin (or other meat, shrimp or tofu, etc.)
- 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄3 cup chopped carrot

- Place bean sprouts, peas, and scallions in a small bowl together and set aside.

Great Fried Rice!! I used some leftover seasoned steak as the protien and followed the directions exactly!! Yummy and enjoyed by all!! Made for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens - ZWT6.
Very tasty, and was a great companion to Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin. The brown rice was all plus, as it added fiber and color. We did substitute frozen corn for carrots, but that didn't change much. Great rice! Made for PRMR, March 2009.
