A quick and easy way to make fried rice during the work week. Basic ingredients, quick cooking time, and delicious taste. Can’t go wrong with this recipe!

It was decent for my first try. I wish I had a cast iron skillet so it would have had a more fried taste.

It turned out really good. Better than what we get from local restaurant. Will definitely keep this one.

Fast and fantastic! I only made it with 3 cups of rice, which was plenty.

It was great!! I didn’t use any corn starch though.
Annike Kristensen 28 Mar 2017
Super yummy! Will be doing this again. I used brown rice as well in mixture with white rice which gave a nice flavor as well.

Tasted just like fried rice! We enjoyed it. We bought prawns that were already de-tailed and prepped - easy. Also I added corn for extra veggie.

Excellent! Outstanding! Delicious! Scrumptious! As I'm sure you have guessed by now, I LOVED this dish and will certainly make it again. Definitely as good as any I've ever had in a restaurant

We liked this recipe even though I made it in a hot rush forgetting both the peas and the sesame oil. My spouse cursed the task of cleaning the shrimp even though she insists on doing the shrimp cleaning. I would try cooking the onions with the shrimp next time or using shallots.

i heat up the cooked rice in a wok with the oil...then add the soya sauce , salt and pepper.....then i get the rice as hot as possible and then add the raw scrambled egg...then fold the egg into the rice.....ok then add the carrots peas and poached prawns and keep folding till all hot

My family will love it. Didnt modify the recipe but except for sesame oil -- which is not in my kitchen, I used olive oil
Joy A. 16 Aug 2016
I used shrimps and thinly sliced lean porc. Added hoisin and worcestershire sauce in addition to light soy sauce.
