A quick fried rice like you get at your favorite Chinese restaurant. A couple of eggs, baby carrots, peas and soy sauce is all you need.
really easy and yummy! IMPORTANT NOTE: if you want it to taste like true restaurant style, you need to put the rice only in a pot over high heat and stir it around for about 5 minutes or so before cooking.
This is a great recipe! The only thing I want to add is that to get that authentic “taste” of restaurant fried rice, you should add about half a bottle of Oyster Sauce. Easily found in the asian section at the grocery store.
I found this quite tasty after a few adjustments. I cooked it in beef broth instead of the water and added a little minced garlic, grated ginger, sesame oil and green onions! Just like the restaurant!! Yum!
I have learned that I must double or even triple this recipe because everyone who tries it…can’t get enough of it! It is better than any restaurant I’ve ever been to!
