I don't think I've submitted a review on the site before but this was so delicious that I felt compelled to finally write one. I didn't change a single thing about this recipe. It's perfect. Did everything and followed both the recipe and video- including the egg on top with spices, more sesame oil and green onion for garnish. Going to make it again soon but try out chicken instead of ham for something different. Thank you so much Chef John for such a tasty recipe!
Chef John hit another home run! This is wonderful! I followed the recipe exactly and we loved it. I was a little worried about the amount of sesame oil but it was perfect. I can imagine using rotisserie chicken or roast pork instead of the ham with the same results. This tastes better than home-made fried rice and there is very little mess to clean up. Hubby gave it a thumbs up and can't wait to have the leftovers with the poached egg on top. Thanks for another great recipe.
I really wanted to love this, but I didn't. The rice cooked unevenly and the flavor was a little flat for me. The fried egg did help the overall taste, but there was no redeeming the grains of undercooked rice.
Well, it wasn't as greasy as I thought it might be but there is way too much rice in this recipe. I used turkey kielbasa and low soy sauce. I scrambled two eggs and used frozen peas & carrots that I cooked before adding to the dish in the last stir. Oh and I added a couple of teaspoons of Frank's Wing sauce instead of the chili paste. My husband said it was tasty and I thought it was good but stirring all that stuff in a 7 x 11 inch baking dish was a real mess. I'm not sure I'll ever make this again.
Being Japanese , I never would have thought of BAKING fried rice, but it turned out very well. The only thing that I did differently was sautéed the carrots and onions a bit prior to adding to rice and meat. Otherwise pretty pleased.
