(Very) Simple Fried Rice

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by iPlayFlonkerton

Note: 1 C uncooked rice = 3 C cooked. It's best to use rice that has been cooked the day before and stored in the refrigerator. Freshly cooked rice is too wet and will result in a soggy mess. I affectionately call this "Rule of 3 Rice" because of all the threes...

Indeed very simple and very good! Flexible recipe, I didnt have green onions, so I used chives from my garden, and I added shrimps to make this a very good meal! Thank you, good recipe, made for Bargain Basement tag game
