oriental fried rice


how close does this recipe come to the rice in a restaurant. i keep trying all different recipes, my kids love fried rice and i try to make them what they like, but they are always telling me it is not the right color or like the restaurant. i will try this one too.

Hi njmomof2...

This is my favorite recipe for fried rice. I have been using it a long time. It is probably not as greasy as the fried rice that you buy because it does not use that much oil. I lived in Okinawa for years and this was the best I could come up with.

My son was the picky one. He would not eat rice unless it was sticky like the Japanese type. He would eat this though. I hope it works for you. You can always tweak it a bit to make the kids like it. old are they?

I see you are new here. Welcome. This is a great site!! Look forward to seeing you around more...

fried rice

I have never seen a brown rice, only yellow.

If white rice is used it will turn into brown color after adding the soy sauce.

My family likes having sauted vegetables added. I usually chop fresh broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. I saute them in the oil first and then add my remaining ingredients. I tried using frozen broccoli and cauliflower, but my dds (14 &10) told me that it tasted better with the "firmer" vegetables.

What's for Dinner? thread.

Fried Rice

Heat Wok to 250-300%

1 small onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
mushrooms, chopped (optional)
2-3 Tbsp. butter
Rice (cooked the night before or early that day; it must be cold)
Ham (I use leftover ham, deli ham, Oscar Mayer lunchmeat ham)
(You can use the meat of your choice)
2-3 eggs
Soy Sauce

Saute onion, pepper, mushrooms, if used, in
butter. Remove from pan. Add rice to wok in
butter residue (add more butter if needed, I do)
Stir fry 3-5 min. til heated through. Sprinkle
with soy sauce. Add veggies and chopped ham
back to rice;heat through. Create a hole in
center of rice, scramble eggs till almost dry then,
mix with rice. Season to taste with soy sauce.

This can be a meal in itself. I usually serve it
with lumpia.

NOTE: You can add other veggies: carrots,
garden peas etc.

Korean Dinner

I cooked a Korean Dinner for my son's 21st bday - it's his favorite and I had all 4 boys sitting at the table that afternoon helping me roll yakimando (Korean egg rolls).

When my mom cooks up Fried Rice, she will add any leftovers.

Here's my recipe:
Fried Rice:
5- 6 eggs - scrambled
1 onion - chopped finely
3 - 4 cloves fresh garlic (finely minced)
6 green onions (chopped bite-size pcs)
1 lb bacon (chopped bite-size pieces)
1 cup mushrooms (chopped)
3 - 4 slices bulgogi chopped bite size pcs (Korean teriyaki meat)
(this meat is thinly sliced and marinated in soysauce, sugar, garlic, sesame seed oil, sesame seed, chopped green onion
2 cups grated carrots
1 bag frozen peas

Cook bacon in wok. Empty bacon onto plate w/paper towel.
Leave one tsp bacon grease in wok (optional: 1 tsp veg. oil instead) and cook scrambled eggs. Empty eggs into bowl and set aside. Wipe wok. Add veg oil and heat in wok then turn to med hi to hi and cook onion and garlic until onion transparent. Add beef, mushrooms, carrots and stir together until carrots turn bright orange and meat is med well. Add bacon and eggs and toss well adding sesame seed oil and soy sauce. It is best to add cold rice but I work with hot rice right out of the cooker and work in until well mixed and flavored. Add frozen peas and green onions and let sit for a few minutes to thaw peas.

This recipe will serve 10 - 12 people or you can eat leftovers for breakfast, lunch, dinner for next few days!!!

Option: you can add shrimp instead of bacon.
