This is my revised version of another pork fried rice recipe. I often substitute chicken for pork, and it doesn't change anything. I have used both basmati rice and long-grain rice which gives the dish only a slight flavor difference. I have also added celery in the past with good outcomes. Enjoy.

I tried this with cold, leftover pork chops. I liked it so much that I blogged about it. Here's my blog to read how I put a bit of a spin on it. http://1organizedmomma.blogspot.ca/2013/04/leftovers-yummy.html Read More

I'll give it two instead of 1 because maybe I did something wrong. This was terribly bland. I even added extra salt and white pepper and made some sweet and sour sauce. There just was no flavor to it. Read More

If you find this bland use these tweaks. I've made this a number of times. Beat eggs & add 1/8 tsp sesame oil. Scramble eggs in hot pan & set aside. Saute onions, garlic, & ginger in a little oil & remove. Cook minute rice in microwave & save yourself some time. Put pork, sesame oil, soy sauce, & hoison sauce (tbs) in hot pan & saute till cooked. Add rice to pan with pork as well as eggs & sauted veggies etc & mix well over heat. Now it's flavorful & tastes much like take out. Read More

This is pretty good but needs a lot more rice - at least for us. I used fresh garlic and fresh ginger which adds a lot to the nice fresh flavors. Read More

Made this with leftover porkchops that I ground in the Cuisinart. I used Bragg's instead of soy sauce to make it gluten-free. Doubled the recipe and it turned out delicious! Read More

It's true that what they serve as take out doesn't taste like real fried rice. I'd never had it before let alone made it and it was a winner! I upped the butter used a bag of frozen mixed veggies half a Vidalia and the chicken from one of the drumsticks I was making as the main course. For a little extra chicken flavor I poured some broth over the veggies and let it cook off. I also used more rice and increased the ingredients for the last step. Read More

This was very tasty but does need some changes in measurements for our taste. I used 3 green onions, fresh garlic & ginger - lots more than 1/8 tsp & 2 cups rice. I didn't use pork as I was just looking for a rice side dish. The broccoli & carrots were really good in this dish. Using gluten free soy sauce (Bragg) makes this a good GF choice. Read More

GREAT dinner... rather than use the veggies in the recipe, I added added a 1 lb. bag of frozen "Stir Fry Sugar Pea Blend" after changing the serving size to 8. It was a big hit with my grandchildren... they loved it :-). Wouldn't hesitate to make this recipe again. Simple to make and most enjoyable! Read More

Very good fried rice! Very versatile recipe as well. I substituted a can of cut baby corn for the broccoli minced red onion for the green onion and minced garlic instead of powder because that's what I had on hand. I also used sesame oil instead of butter. I habitually do not measure ingredients precisely but I probably doubled the soy sauce and ginger. Next time I make it which I surely will I will use green onion and broccoli and maybe fresh ginger. Thanks Olies for a good fried rice recipe that's easy quick and delicious. Read More
