Better Than Takeout Fried Rice: Recipe!

Seriously, I’ve pinned this no less than 10 times on Pinterest and every single time it errors to a “blocked site.” enough pinterest. I figured I could probably guess how to do this based on some common logic and decided to try it out tonight! Here is what I came up with and it was sooo tasty!

  1. 6 cups cooked brown rice
  2. 3 cups cooked protein (chicken, shrimp, pork, etc)
  3. 2 cups frozen peas and carrots
  4. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  5. 4 eggs
  6. 1 tsp mince garlic
  7. sesame oil
  8. soy sauce
  1. Prepare rice as per the directions, set aside. I recommend you actually prepare the rice before you even start doing the rest of it. My rice took a little longer to cook then the box said and I was sitting around waiting for rice to cook while the rest of the food was done.
  2. In a large skillet heat a little bit of sesame oil and saute onion until transparent. Add frozen peas and carrots. Cook until vegetables are tender , stirring occasionally.
  3. Add garlic and continue cooking until tender.
  4. Once vegetables are tender, move the mixture to half the pan. Add the eggs to the other half of the pan and begin to scramble eggs.
  5. Once eggs are somewhat scrambled, mix the eggs and the vegetables all together.
  6. Add your cooked protein to the vegetable/egg mixture and add soy sauce. Cook for a few minutes.
  7. Add rice. **unless you have a super large skillet, I would modify and grab a new skillet. Add some more sesame oil and add a little bit of the rice and vegetable/egg/protein mixture. Add a little bit more soy sauce to taste and let the mixture "fry" in the pan to get the crispy rice you want in a fried rice.
  8. Flip the mixture to fry the other side.
