FRIED RICE RECIPE – My favorite recipe is this Chinese-inspired one. It’s quick and simple to create, versatile with any of your favorite add-ins, and oh-so-delicious.
FRIED RICE RECIPE
— 3 Tbsp. Butter, divided
— 2 eggs, whisked
— 2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
— 1 small white onion, diced
— 1/2 cup frozen peas
— 3 cloves garlic, minced
— salt and pepper
— 4 cups cooked and chilled rice (I prefer short-grain white rice)
— 3 green onions, thinly sliced
— 3-4 Tbsp. Soy sauce, or more to taste
— 2 tsp. Oyster sauce (optional)
— 1/2 tsp. Toasted sesame oil
Heat 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until melted.
Add egg, and cook until scrambled, stirring occasionally. Remove egg, and transfer to a separate plate.
Add another 1 tablespoon butter to the pan and heat until melted.
Then, add carrots, onion, peas and garlic, and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
Sauté for about 5 minutes, or until the onion and carrots are soft.
Increase heat to high, add in the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter, and stir until melted.
Immediately add the rice, green onions, soy sauce and oyster sauce (if using), and stir until combined.
Continue stirring for an additional 3 minutes to fry the rice.
Then add in the eggs and stir to combine. Add the sesame oil, stir to combine, and remove from heat.
