My Fried Rice

5 stars
 Fried Rice
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seads
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup matchsticks carrots chopped
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas (or more I love these)
  • 5-6 cups cold cooked rice (this time I used 1/2 brown and 1/2 white)
  • 2 eggs scrambled
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Hoisin Sauce (or to taste.. it can be a bit spicy)
  • 2 teaspoon of ginger sauce (I used orange ginger grilling sauce it was fine)
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sesame seads, garlic and onion and saute until soft, then add carrots 2 tablespoons soy sauce and the other sauces and stir-fry for 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Then add rice and stir thoroughly. Add more oil if needed.
  3. Finally, stir in scrambled eggs and frozen peas and 1/3 cup soy sauce, heat through and serve hot. 
Use cold rice, otherwise it will turn out very sticky.  Dont add peas in the begging or they get really wrinkled and over cooked.   Have fun with adding or substituting veggies and rice.  Asian tastes are with ginger, garlic and sesame.  You can use sesame oil instead of veggie oil.  Also add any meat you like, chicken, pork, steak or shrimp.

  1. Oh! I hadn't thought about using a grilling sauce to add zing. Nice tip!
