Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Cook egg in hot wok, stirring continually, until no longer moist, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer egg to a plate and return wok to heat.

  • Cook ginger and garlic in skillet until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add teriyaki sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, salt, and red pepper flakes to the ginger and garlic; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and continue to cook another 2 minutes.

  • Crumble cold rice into the wok. Stir rice with a wooden spoon, breaking rice into individual grains as it warms; add peas, carrots, broccoli, and green onion. Cook and stir mixture until the vegetables are tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Fold scrambled egg into the rice mixture; cook and stir until egg is reheated, 1 to 2 minutes more.

I used 3 eggs when I made this and had no soy sauce on hand- so instead I used worstershire - and it was fine! (I know- I am as shocked as you are. The world didn't end!) I added celery peas carrots sweet peppers and asparagus - all chopped up super tiny. It was a lovely way to use a lot of leftover brown rice. This recipe seems so versatile and easy to expand (or contract). Also- I used ground ginger- rather than fresh--- the result was a nicely spiced dish! Read More

Family was thrown off by the sugar and the lime personally I love lime so it didn't bug me. This rice is sweeter than I normally make it given the teriyaki and added sugar. If I do this again those would be omitted/replaced with regular soy sauce. Left out the peas as that is one of the few veggies we won't touch. Thanks for a decent recipe! Read More

Modified this a good bit -- for veggies used fresh broccoli green pepper and mushrooms reduced the amount of sugar used tamari instead of teriyaki (so no need to add extra salt) and threw in some extra red pepper flakes. After adding liquids it was reducing too quickly to cook on its own so I added veggies and rice right away; Not bad! Read More

Best rice I've made so far! Put more veggies than called for but more is better in this case. Read More

Next time I'd leave the lime juice out. It overpowered the other flavors. Read More
