A bit of Polish mixed with an old Filipino favorite. A terrific way to use up left-over rice. Definitely a favorite at my apartment! Be sure to use rice that is cooked the previous day. Fresh rice will ruin this recipe and make it mushy. Add more veggies for variety.

I browned cubes of lite kielbasa in the pan first then used the little bit of grease they gave up to saute the onion. Used a 16oz bag of coleslaw mix instead of carrots and cabbage. And added a couple handfuls of frozen peas at the end. Some steamed broccoli on the side made this a complete meal. Read More

If I were to do this recipe again there are many things I would change including cooking the eggs first it made the rice super sticky to cook it all together. Read More

This was good although I really modified the amounts of the ingredients. I felt it was way too heavy on the sausage. I diced 8 oz. of fully cooked kielbasa fried it drained it and then blotted out as much grease as possible--my 1/2 lb. turned out to be 4 oz. For this amount of meat the other things I CHANGED were: used 1 medium onion 2 large carrots 2 cloves of garlic 9 oz. (by weight) of cabbage coleslaw mix and 2 cups of pre-cooked rice. This made 2 large main-dish portions that were not at all greasy. Serve it with a sweet fruit such as red grapes or cantaloupe. A very fast simple and good dinner esp. if the meat is prepared ahead of time. Yum. Read More

Really good...however I made a few slight changes; I used Turkey Kielbasa brown rice and a whole bag of preshredded Angel Hair Cabbage. I also cooked the egg seperately(fried/scrambled) before assembling the final dish. Read More

This is a dish we make more often these days. I would re-emphasize using left-over rice as opposed to fresh rice. Also you probably don't need the oil; the sausage we use has enough oil so I brown the meat first and then fry everything in the sausage oil. The trick is getting flavorful spicy sausage (if you don't use kielbasa) which adds more flavor because otherwise it's bland. Read More

They modified this recipe before they posted it. One of the MOST important things with fried rice is to use rice that is a day old. If you use fresh cooked rice it makes the recipe mushy. If the rice was cooked a day before it is a little firmer and fries up better. Read More

Made this with chicken instead of Kielbasa! WAS GREAT! Def scramble the eggs ahead of time and then just mix in - so easy! I added some peanut sauce as another review suggested. Will def make again! Read More

This recipe is outstanding! I was looking for something to use my supersized head of cabbage for this week other than the usual coleslaw... I did not have kielbasa on hand so substituted chicken breast. I used rice noodles instead of rice. My family ADORED this combination! So.....PLAY with this recipe! (I even added my last zucchini on hand!) HINT: A smathering of Padang peanut sauce for those who like it spicy is delightful!! Read More

This turned out very good and even my picky 5 year-old ate some! I have always made a similar recipe but liked the addition of cabbage. The only thing I did different was to pull the veges to one side of the pan add a bit of butter to keep them from sticking and cooked the beaten eggs before mixing them with the veges and adding the rice and soy sauce. Like another reviewer I tried it with chicken and loved it that way. It would also be very good with the kielbasa. I will try it that way when I have some. I like adding frozen peas at the end as well. Very good way to use leftover rice! Read More
