Chinese Fried Rice

Pin It
Once again, here's another normal take-out recipe that can quickly and easily be made in the comfort of your own home. I served this with homemade Beef and Broccoli and it was just like having Chinese delivery. The fried rice tastes incredibly similar to what you would find in your local restaurant. You can make the rice at home beforehand, but since there is a Chinese restaurant right by my office I bought some on my lunch break and decided to use that instead. Shortcuts are my best friend. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 3/4 cup onions, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp. oil, divided
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 drops soy sauce
  • 3 drops sesame oil
  • 8 oz. cooked lean boneless pork or 8 oz. chicken, chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 4 cups cold cooked rice, grains separated
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. light soy sauce
Heat 1/2 tbsp. oil in a small skillet. Add the chopped meat and cook until done, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Heat 1 tbsp. oil in wok; add chopped onions and stir-fry until onions turn a nice brown color, about 8-10 minutes; remove from wok. Allow wok to cool slightly.

Mix egg with 3 drops of soy and 3 drops of sesame oil; set aside.

Add 1/2 tbsp. oil to wok, swirling to coat surfaces; add egg mixture. Working quickly, swirl egg until egg sets against wok; when egg puffs, flip egg and cook other side briefly. Remove from wok and chop into small pieces.

Heat the remaining 1 tbsp. oil in wok. Add the carrots, peas, and cooked onion; stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Add cooked meat, rice and green onions, tossing to mix well. Stir-fry for 3 minutes and serve.

  1. Rice is one of the things I can still eat (for now as I was told to go gluten free), but with this recipe who cares about pasta.
