What's for Dinner [Fried Rice]

Hubby and I came across this dinner on accident as we threw some leftovers and pantry items together one night, but it's quickly becoming a go-to when we don't feel like cooking or when we have a crazy evening and just need to whip up something quick.  It really does work well when we have leftover bits of protein: roasted chicken, Asian pork tenderloin, etc.

The best part about this recipe is that all ingredients are to taste.  If you like carrots in yours, by all means throw them into the pan! 

Fried Rice
  • 2 cups rice, leftover and cold
  • 1/2 cup shelled edamame, steamed (or peas, if you prefer)
  • 2 T peanut or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chicken, pork, shrimp or beef, cooked (or you could use tofu, but Hubby wouldn't...)
  • 1 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 t fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 1 t sesame oil
  •  Heat 1 T oil in large wok or skillet over medium high heat.
  • Pour in eggs and allow to cook.  Once set, remove from pan and cut into pieces.
  • Heat remaining 1 T oil in same pan and heat over high heat.  Add scallions and stir-fry for 1 min. Add remaining ingredients and cook for a few minutes until heated through.  Return egg to pan and serve immediately.  
  • Enjoy!

Happy Cooking!

  1. Looks so good! I could just increase the veggies to replace the meat!
