Fried Rice

Fried Rice created by slickchick

You'll never buy the fried rice from the local Chinese restaurant when you discover how easy and (above all) great tasting this recipe is. The secret is the sesame oil. If you don't have that, don't bother making it! Can add cooked chunked baby carrots and peas, if desired. Cold rice works best so it doesn't get mushy. I usually cook my rice the day before and keep in the refrigerator until ready to prepare.

    WOW! Was this ever good! Claudia Dawn, kudos to you! And, you're right about the sesame oil--that was the PERFECT touch! I used zucchini, carrots, celery, peas, green onions and leftover pork, but the meat was not even necessary. I used canola in place of the peanut oil only because that's what I had on hand. And Tamari since that was what I had. It was so flavorful! Gonna Pin this one!

    Very nice. However, I've been making fried rice for years and am half Chinese, and I would say you really don't NEED the sesame oil (no offence). The peanut oil, I've found, is quite important though. Peanut oil (as opposed to olive oil and other oil) seems to give it the best flavour and colour.

    Easy and very flavorable. Very easy to add variations (peas, cooked diced carrots, shrimp, chicken, pork, etc.). Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Yeah - first time for me in years to make brown rice correct and used chicken stock instead of water, which makes this dish beautiful. I used bacon bits and yellow onion and the rest as written. Used with Shrimp fry #129262 also tasty.
