ISO Fried Rice Recipe

anyone got any good recipes/techniques on how to make fried rice? ive never made it before but it sounds great! I've got no idea about it though, could you serve it as a main dish if the ingredients you add are hearty enough?

I made this a thread of it's own Drummercook since it was asking a different question.

You might try an Advanced Search and search titles only. Quite a few things show up.

LOL - you didn't cause confusion - I just wanted people to see your question. I suggested the search just to get you started looking. I can't make a good fried rice so I'm curious too. We need answers!

After living in Japan for two years I can safely say Fried rice covers a whole lot of territory.. The basics 1 use day old rice never fresh cooked it will get to sticky.Fried Rice all ways has scrambled eggs in it . Generally fried and taking out and set aside.3 Fried Rice as a rule has minced garlic,minced ginger,and minced onion for the aromatics fried in peanut oil, some times a few red chili flakes are added. now here is where it gets squirrely
you can have Beef,pork, chicken, duck or vegetarian or what ever protean you want cut in small jullienne. First add peanut oil to your wok our your deep Dutch oven, get it hot then add your garlic,ginger,onion stir fry for 15 seconds. Add rice and stir fry for 3-5 minutes till good and hot.. season with a table spoon or two of soy sauce and a tsp of dark Chinese sesame oil stir fry for 1 minute, garnish with the scrambled eggs, diagonal cut green onions both white and the green part, some chopped parsley, or cilantro. from here on out add what ever floats your boat, bean sprouts, water chestnuts. Etc..Now go for it

Yum, thanks for posting this recipe. The only thing different is I pour my beaten eggs in over the rice and cook them all together not separate. Haven't made this in so long, usually make pork fried rice.

While peanut oil is the universally accepted wok oil, I've found I also like the flavor of sesame seed oil.

But I also like fried rice with Spam, so take my oil suggestion cautiously...

Dave,
Would sesame oil work as well as peanut oil? My recipe is very similar to yours except for the oil. Thanks for the recipe post.
