Japanese Fried Rice

By

Hello All,

And welcome back to Food~Flavor~Fun!  This is a place to find and share some great food ideas that are loaded with flavor, to be prepared and shared with family and friends to bring a lot of fun and enjoyment into our lives.  I’m really glad that you came for a visit.

The recipes on the blog have been broken down into categories.  If this recipe isn’t exactly what your looking for, choose a category and do a little exploring.  I’m sure that you will find something new to try.  So join me, sit down and make this weeks menu and your grocery list.

Today I’m going to share my Japanese Fried Rice recipe.  Its oh so simple.  And I think it adds a lot more flavor to an oriental dish than plain white rice.  I made this earlier this week for my family and poured a real nice orange chicken over this rice.  Great Flavor.  Hmmm, I guess I’ll have to put the Orange Chicken recipe out here to.  Stay tuned for that tomorrow.  Here you go…

  Japanese Fried Rice
Ingredients:
  • 4 cups cooked rice or 1 cup uncooked rice (either white or brown rice)
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons carrots,  finely diced
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • salt
  • pepper
Directions:
  1. Cook rice following instructions on package (Bring 2 cups water to a boil, add rice and a dash of salt, reduce heat and simmer in covered saucepan for 20 minutes).
  2. Pour rice into a large bowl to let it cool in the refrigerator.
  3. Scramble the eggs in a small pan over medium heat.
  4. Separate the scrambled chunks of egg into small pea-size bits while cooking.
  5. When rice has cooled to near room temperature, add peas, grated carrot, scrambled egg and diced onion to the bowl.
  6. Carefully toss all of the ingredients together.
  7. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium/high heat.
  8. When butter has completely melted, dump the bowl of rice and other ingredients into the pan and add soy sauce plus a dash of salt and pepper.
  9. Cook rice for 6-8 minutes over heat, stirring often

Enjoy!
