Basic Fried Rice
20 mins (prep 20)
7 ingredients
6 servings
This is a fried rice that I have been making for a long, long time. You can add whatever you want to this basic recipe. We like it as is, but you may add chicken, shrimp, pork, or beef. Also, you may add scallions instead of onions, two eggs instead of one, grated carrots or zucchini or more mushrooms. You may add canned bean sprouts or sliced green pepper if you want. It is so versatile. If you add a lot of extras, you may need more soy sauce and brown sauce. This is the basic recipe.
