Beef or Chicken Fried Rice (Asian)

READY IN: 50mins




  • Slice beef or chicken breast into thin strips.
  • For the marinade; combine soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, one minced clove of garlic, and red chili.
  • Marinate meat for several hours (over night is best).
  • Thinly slice green onions and coarsely chop the green tops. Separate, as they will go in at different times.
  • Grate the carrots.
  • Slice the dried chilies lengthwise.
  • Scramble the eggs lightly in a bowl.
  • Heat the oil in a wok or deep pan.
  • Fry the eggs until set, remove and slice into strips.
  • Add the garlic and sliced green onions (white part) and the sliced red chilies to the hot oil, sauté for a minute or so, then add the marinated meat, reserving the marinade (beef only). If you're cooking chicken, don't reserve the marinade; just add some soy sauce in its place later in the process.
  • Stir fry the meat until cooked, and then remove.
  • Add the chilled, cooked rice to the hot oil and stir fry until heated thoroughly.
  • Add the meat, green onion tops, carrots, egg slices, and some or all of the the reserved marinade (or equal amount of soy sauce if you used chicken, about 1/4 cup).
  • Stir fry until all is heated through.
  • Serve immediately.
