Fried Rice

Fried Rice: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I have always loved fried rice. Even when I did not like Chinese food, I still loved fried rice. So being able to make it at home and having it taste just as good as a restaurant is a nice thing.

Fried Rice

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 4 cups cooked and chilled white rice
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  1. In a large skillet melt 1/2 tablespoon butter over medium high heat.
  2. When butter has melted add eggs and cook until scrambled. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon butter to pan and melt. Add in carrots, onion, peas, garlic and season with black pepper. Sauté for 5 minutes or until the onions and carrots are softened.
  4. Increase heat to high and add remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter and stir until melted.
  5. Immediately add in the rice, green onions and soy sauce, stirring until well combined. Continue to stir and cook for 3 minutes.
  6. Add in the eggs and stir to combine.
  7. Add in the sesame oil and stir to combine.
  8. Remove from heat and serve.
