Leftover Cooked Rice

I have a cup of white rice and about 2 cups of brown rice that I overcooked for another dish. What can I do with it? I would like to make some type of side dish, maybe with vegetables mixed in, similar to rice pilaf, but I know that rice pilaf starts with raw rice.

No question, for me it would be pineapple or raisin fried rice. You can also freeze it for another time. Rice pudding.

When you say overcooked, do you mean cooked too much in quantity, or cooked to mush?

Definitely fried rice. I love this site for easy Asian-inspired recipes: http://www.steamykitchen.com/148-veg...ried-rice.html

I made this recipe last night. It's a winner in our book.


Chinese Pork Fried Rice
2 Tb Dark Soy Sauce
2 Tb Light Soy Sauce
3 Tb Oyster Sauce
3 Tb Dry Sherry
2 Tb Peanut Oil
2 tsp Ginger, grated
2 tsp Garlic, grated
C Carrots, shredded
C Onion, sliced
C Shiitake Mushrooms, sliced
1 Ea Egg, scrambled
1 C Chinese Cabbage, shredded
1 Lg Chinese BBQ Boneless Spareribs, diced
3 C Day-Old Cooked Rice (1 C raw)
1 C Bean Sprouts
⅓ C Peas
C Scallions, chopped

The day before preparing the recipe, cook the rice in 1 cups of boiling salted water for 18-20 minutes. Do not add oil to the water for the rice. Turn off the heat and let it rest for 15-20 minutes. Fluff the rice and refrigerate until needed. If you cook the rice on the same day you make the fried rice, after cooking and resting the rice, fluff it and spread it onto a half sheet pan. Place the rice in the freezer for 30 minutes then store in the fridge until needed.

Combine the soy and oyster sauces and the sherry and set aside.

Heat a wok then add the oil and heat it as well.

Add the ginger and garlic and heat briefly until aromatic.

Add the carrots, onions and mushrooms and stir-fry.

Make a well in the middle of the wok by pushing the cooked veggies up the sides of the wok. Add the egg to the center of the wok stir until cooked.

Add the cabbage, pork strips, rice and the mixed sauce. Toss together until any rice clumps are broken up and the sauce evenly colors the rice.

Add the sprouts, peas and scallions and toss together to combine all the ingredients.

NOTE: If you sub a raw protein for the spareribs (chicken, pork, shrimp), marinate it in the sauce mixture, drain and reserve the sauce for the recipe, stir-fry the protein, then proceed with the recipe. Heat the marinade/sauce to boiling before using it in the recipe.

That is a great idea! I've eaten it out, but never made it myself. Looks easy enough, even for me! Thanks!

Once you chop, shred, slice and measure all the ingredients, it cooks up in just a few minutes.

This one was good:
Fried rice a la Dawg

If your rice is cooked to mush, it might be best used as rice pudding.

No, I cooked too much, but I've been known to overcook it at times! LOL
