Why I Love This Recipe

My family loves Chinese Fried Rice and I'm always trying to find new recipes and create my own versions of this dish. Here's my basic version for you to try. Experiment and add your own veggies, meat, creative! Remember not to overcook the vegetables; keep them crisp.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 cups cold, cooked rice (I like basmati), fluffed with fork
3 eggs, scrambled
Canola or peanut oil, as needed per preference
Butter, as needed per preference
1/2 medium-size onion, coarsely chopped
3 small carrots, cut thin on a diagonal
1 small head of broccoli, cut in small florets (stems discarded)
3 scallions, sliced diagonally
Beans sprouts
6-7 Tbsp. soy sauce (your favorite type, Japanese dark, lite, low sodium, etc.)
1 Tbsp. cooking sherry
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. thick soy sauce (optional, found in Asian markets, adds color to rice and a little flavor; a little goes a long way)
Salt and pepper to taste


Cook your scrambled eggs in a small amount of butter and set aside.

Heat about 1 Tbsp. oil and 1-2 Tbsp. butter in a wok over high heat. Working quickly, stir-fry the broccoli about 2 minutes, then add the carrots and onions and continue to stir-fry vegetables tender crisp.

Add the soy sauce to the vegetables and continue frying over medium-hot heat. Add more butter, if desired, then add the rice while continuing to stir-fry constantly so the rice doesn't burn to the bottom of the wok.

Add cooking sherry, stirring continuously, then the cooked eggs and scallions.

Stir in the thick soy sauce, if using, and sprinkle the sesame oil over the rice. Continue the stir fry process until all the rice is heated through and ingredients well incorporated. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper per your taste.
