  • About This Recipe

    “I never could make fried rice, it always turned out sticky and nasty.Until one night when I couldn’t sleep, I turned on the tv and watched this infomercial for cookware and they made fried rice. And what do you know, its a good recipe!Only thing good that ever came out of a infomercial, lol. Anyway my whole family loves it and have been asked for the recipe many times. If you have leftover chicken, toss it in too.I’ve also added hamburger and other veggies with good results too.”

  • “Easy, tasty recipe!I cut it in half cause I only had 1 1/2 cups of rice.Used 1 egg instead of 1 1/2.Only had a few slices of onion so I added a couple diced garlic cloves.Used canned peas (recommend sticking with the frozen – canned too mushy). Also added diced precooked bacon. This recipe is very adaptable as far as ingredients.It’s a definite keeper.Thanks Mona. “

  • “Mona,This was indeed VERY easy and it went together so well,I have tried other recipes but they did not mix well.I loved this recipe,Everyting went so smooth and easy I was done and eating it before I knew it,will definitely make this often.Thanks,Darlene Summers”

  • “I found this to be an easy to prepare fried rice that went well with Vietnamese Spring Rolls that my wife made.I will, in the future, back off or even eliminate the celery or, perhaps better yet, chop it even finer (I had about 1/8″ x 1/8″ x 1/8″ pieces this time). I think some chopped sugar pea pods would also go rather well with this dish.This dish will be welcome to return to my table.”

  • “This was an excellent recipe. It was my first attempt to make fried rice, but won’t be my last. I used between 1/4 and 1/2 cup of soy sauce. I also forgot the celery. It still turned out to be the perfect rice for our chinese meal. I can’t wait to make it again.”

  • “Just what I was hoping to find – I, too have had bad experiences with fried rice in the past.This turned out quite well, I did cut the butter in half, and then added two Tbsp. olive oil for cooking the eggs. I didn’t have any peas or celery, but it still tasted as close as I’ve ever come to restaurant flavor.Next time I think I’ll use chives at the end, too.Thanks so much!”

  • “Very good and Very easy! I love to make this the day after we have had pan fried (not breaded) pork chops. I always make sure to have a couple chops left over that I can finely dice and add to the fried rice. I don’t use as much butter or soy sauce though and last time realized too late that I didn’t have any celery but it still came out great! Thanks for sharing , it has become a family favorite!!!”

  • “This is a really nice fried rice recipe. I used frozen mixed vegetables, a splash of seasame oil and cooked diced bacon. I used less butter, about 4 T. and 2(- or +) oz of soy sauce. Turned out great. I served this with jerked chicken and everyone loved it. Thanks for a great recipe. It’s a keeper and so easy1”

  • “We *really* liked this. My three year old could not stop eating the stuff!I just added a bit of seasame seed oil for flavor and let out the celery.I’ll be making this again! Thank you for posting!”

  • “Easy! Quick! Tasty! Used frozen mixed vegies and 1/4 cup soy sauce.”

  • “I enjoyed this recipe…left over pork chops really made it stand out.Thanks much”

  • “Such an easy and delicious recipe! We’ve made it twice in the past week and our 18 month old girl loves it. I think next time I will cut back just a bit on the butter and may try a dusting of garlic powder. Easily a five star recipe!”

  • “I made this tonight for dinner… It was very good! I cooked my rice then rinsed it in cold water and put it in the fridge to get cold. I used red onion ( all I had on hand) and I wish I had sprouts … But it turned out very very good! Thanks for the recipe! Will make it again!!”

  • “A keeper!! Being vegan I of course went with rice oil and no egg but still those are non essentials.I spiced it up by adding a chopped jalapeno with the veggies and some garlic chili paste to the soy sauce otherwise pretty much the same.I doubled it, as I have a larger family and had six cups of left over rice in the fridge.We had it for breakfast though not as a evening meal and it was devoured completely.”

  • “Boy was this easy! I’ve never been successful with fried rice before. (True I’ve only tried once or twice before, but still it intimidated me). Was very easy and came out perfectly. I did use brown rice instead of white rice and got a big thumbs up from both my wife and my 7 year-old son, neither of whom care for chinese food.”

  • “7:00 on a Saturday evening and I needed something quick and easy to go with fried chicken wings and a tossed salad. I used what I had on hand: a little canola oil, some rice I had in my freezer, frozen peas and carrots, a tablespoon of minced garlic, soy sauce, onion, and I omitted the egg. My family enjoyed it. I will make this again, next time with spring onions instead of sweet onions, some other mix of vegetables, and left over chicken.”

  • “Very tasty and so easy!!I gave it 5 stars even though I used red pepper, onion, garlic and green onions and 2 eggs, which is what I had.Such a versatile recipe and tastes so yummy!!!I just feel bad for the delivery guy that won’t be seeing us anymore!Thanks for sharing.”

  • “I used zuchinni, yellow squash, and onion. Very tasty. We also added a dash of ginger.”

  • “When I first made this recipe, I didn’t realize it said 1/2 to 1 CUP oleo, I assumed it was Tablespoons! Well anyways, I only used about 1 Tbsp. canola oil to cook the veggies in to make it low-fat. (Cooking in a non-stick pan so the eggs wouldn’t stick.) I also skipped the celery. It was very good and I will probably make this again. You could also add a couple drops of toasted sesame oil to add more flavor.”

  • “Made this with Recipe #328562 (Baked Chicken Teriyaki).I left out the celery since I didn’t have any and I substituted butter for the oleo.This was quite possibly one of the most delicious fried rice recipes I’ve ever made, and oh so easy!Was a wonderful compliment to the baked teriyaki chicken.I will definitely make this again!Thanks for sharing!”
