  1. Really good! Made it just like the recipe with ham....and used low sodium Soy sauce. Next time I'm gonna try it with mushrooms...thanks Chef Dee!
  2. This was good, and it made a ton!
  3. I wound up leaving out the celery, halving the carrots and onion, and we're vegan so I excluded the eggs as well and halved the soy sauce for health reasons--there was still a lot in the bottom of our skillet, so next time I may halve it again. I also used "asian style savory baked tofu" from 'zaar instead of ham/pork, and like other reviewers, I added a pinch of ground ginger. We'll be making this again, and closer to the original recipe, but next time I'll throw in some cornstarch (since we leave out the egg) and forget about the ginger.
  4. We LOVED this! I made it exactly as written, except added a little chicken base to the rice steamer. I did wash my rice first and had no trouble with it sticking, even though it wasn't cold. I used leftover spiral sliced ham and it was delicious! Thanks for a terrific recipe!
  5. This was good, I added some ground ginger and a shot of worchestershire sauce at the end. I also used chicken for the meat. I think it is the best fried rice that I have tried so far. I also only added the peas at the end because we like ours to retain some texture. Thanks for a keeper Chef Dee.


  1. I make this alot. If you love fried rice this is a great recipe. I use bacon drippings for frying vegetables instead of sesame oil for more flavor,(not the healthiest, but the taste is good) and add 1 can of bean sprouts. I do sprinke on a little sesame oil at the end of cooking. Everything else the same. Thanks for posting Chef Dee
  2. This was very good! I was running behind and used frozen mixed veggies instead of the celery and carrots and it worked out great. I added the rice at the end and then added the soy sauce. Very simple to make and a yummy dish to eat. I served alongside Chef Dee's Lemon Chicken. Thanks for posting another wonderful recipe!


<p>My mother was known for her cooking and baking and I am so happy that I was able to pick up her great skills.</p> <p>I enjoyed many years as a stay at home Mom, whipping up all sorts of large meals and baking of all kinds. Time does not permit many hours in the kitchen anymore, but I still like to entertain when possible and I am always searching for the latest greatest new recipe to add to my tried and true collection.</p>
