+2. I love fried rice and especially love that it's so forgiving as far as ingredients.

Looks and sounds great med, and I'm with you on the shrimp as a protein. I think I'll grab a little jar of baby corn too, while I'm at it.

I just said, "Now I want fried rice!" Like Kayelle, I toss a few peas and carrots in for color. Fried rice was one of those "cool" college meals back when. "Want to go for fried rice" was a great way to get a crowd to follow under the guise of dinner. Cheap and delicious.....

I don't have it nearly as often as I would like these days. :/

chicken, pork, recipe, rice, shrimp, vege

Best fried rice I've ever had I have never liked fried rice, whether restaurant/takeout or homemade, but DH loves it. So, I was looking at recipes to see if I could find one I might like when I came across one that 4.9 out of 5 stars. Checked out the reviews, made notes on the little changes people made and came up with the following for the first time we made it. After I post the basic recipe, I'll note the changes we made the second time. 3/4 pound leftover cooked pork, cubed (you could use raw, just prep it and marinate it like the chicken below) 1/3 cup vegetable oil (divided) 4 eggs, lightly beaten 1 small red onion, finely diced 1 tablespoon finely diced ginger 1 tbls finely minced garlic 1 shredded carrot 2 teaspoons white sugar 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce, can add up to another tbsp but was good with this amount, can also use 1/2 tbsp hoisin and 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce, or just add in some oyster sauce 2 tablespoons light soy sauce or tamari 2 tsp'ish chili garlic oil (or other hot sauce like sriracha) to your taste 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil 4 cups jasmine rice, cooked 2/3 cup finely sliced spring onions (scallions) Heat half the oil in a hot wok until surface seems to shimmer slightly. Pour beaten eggs into wok and leave to cook on the base of the wok for 10 seconds before folding egg mixture over onto itself with a spatula and lightly scrambling for about 1 minute or until almost cooked through. Carefully remove omelette from wok with a spatula and drain on kitchen paper. Set aside. I cut it up a bit to make it easier at the end. Heat remaining oil in hot wok and stir-fry onion, garlic, ginger and carrots for 30 seconds. Add sugar and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Stir in hoisin sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Toss in rice, cubed pork pieces and reserved omelette and stir-fry, using a spatula to break up the egg into smaller pieces, for 1 minute. Lastly, add spring onions and stir-fry for a further 30 seconds or until well combined and rice is heated through. I like to drizzle mine with a bit of sesame oil right before serving. For special fried rice, this is what we did. [IMG]https://www.discusscooking.com/forums/members/37240-albums1042-picture6422.jpg[/IMG] For special fried rice, in addition to above, I added about another cup or so of rice and [B]increased[/B] all the above liquid ingredients by about 1/2. 1/2 of a small red bell, diced 15 or 16 shitake mushrooms, stemmed, then caps halved or quartered depending on size 1/2 can baby corn, rinsed, drained and then cut up 6 or 7 large shrimp, diced 1 chicken thigh cut in small pieces (1/4" ish) then marinated in a bit of tamari, hoisin, just a touch of sesame oil and some minced ginger for 20 minutes at least. Proceed with first paragraph instructions as is. Then, Heat remaining oil in hot wok and stir-fry onion, garlic, ginger, carrots, red bell, mushrooms for 30 seconds. Add sugar and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Stir in chicken, stir fry for 30 seconds, stir in shrimp, stir for about 15 seconds. Stir in hoisin sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Toss in rice, cubed pork pieces, baby corn and reserved omelette and stir-fry, using a spatula to break up the egg into smaller pieces, for 1 minute. Lastly, add spring onions and stir-fry for a further 30 seconds or until well combined and rice is heated through. I like to drizzle mine with a bit of sesame oil right before serving.
