    Great recipe Suggestions for a more authentic version Get some Chinese sausage cut up and add whatever chicken you might have You might substitute some Maggi to taste rather than the soy sauce but start with small amounts. I added some diced onion sauté with the garlic.

    An easy recipe with several time consuming steps. It was good but still tasted as though it was missing something. Will give it another try!

    Little dry. Added steak to it also. Need 3 eggs for it.

    Great recipe for a basic Chinese style fried rice. If you are using regular sodium soy sauce there is no need to add any extra salt. It can also use an additional egg or two, since the 2 eggs called for in the recipe seemed to get lost in the dish.

    I left out the oyster sauce and the sesame oil, and it still tasted very great. However I made some modifications, I used 3 eggs instead of 2, I used a bit more soy sauce, because what the recipe called for wasn’t enough.

    This has become an instant favorite in our house. I don’t use the oyster sauce and I don’t feel it is missing any flavor.

    Stir fry is one of my favorites because you can change and add different veggies. This recipe is simple and delicious!

    It turned out great! Because I didn't really follow the recipe. Well I did at 1st until it was super dry & under seasoned. I used about 2 1/2 cups of rice & it was still a lot. TO PREVENT YOUR RICE FROM STICKING AFTER IT'S DONE PUT ABOUT 1 TBSP OF PARKAY & MIX IT UP THEN REFRIGERATE IN A NICE SIZE CONTAINER OR BOWL SO IT HAS ROOM TO BREATHE also added chicken, pork(that i rotisserie in air fryer) & shrimp. Also needs way more than 2 eggs, I used 4 & still didn't seem enough. I didn't have green onions I used 1 chopped yellow onion. I didn't add any salt at all. I used regular sesame oil. I also used way more oyster sause & sesame oil than that. I strongly suggest that you follow the recipe 1st then taste when its done & add more things q little at a time & taste taste taste right after everything you add! This pic was taken right after i cooked it. The next day I had to re fry it(heat turned almost all the way up) with water, butter & more sesame oil. & it was fantastic!!

    This turned out excellent very easy to make, I did add shrimp which made it extra special. I had left over rice and shrimp so I will be making it again tonight and adding small ham squares. I’m really looking forward to that as well.

    It was easy, quick and delicious. I doubled the recipe and added mushrooms and chicken. Awesome! my husband loved it....

    Made this twice and it was very tasty! The nice thing is how easy it is to prepare, took about 20-30min to make. But you have to remember to cook the rice ahead of time. During my second time making, I sautéed mushrooms, onions, and garlic instead of shrimp.

    It was really good. I would use a low sodium option for the soy saice as it was way to salty. We also substituted cauliflower rice for regular rice and it was still ver good.
