Fried Rice

Collection of fried rice recipesjump to the recipes

Fried rice is an Asian dish made from rice that has been cooked and chilled before being fried. It is best to have rice that has been chilled overnight in the fridge, but in a pinch you can use it if it has been cooled for less time. The rice is quickly stir-fried in oil in a wok or skillet with other savory ingredients such as small pieces of meat and vegetables, and seasonings like soy sauce or ginger. An egg, either scrambled or cooked as a pancake and cut into strips, is sometimes added. Fried rice is also called chow fan, or in Cantonese, chau fan. Fried rice can be a side dish or the main course. It is often made to use up leftover meats and vegetables from the previous days meals.

White rice is most commonly used but brown rice can also be used. Common types of fried rice include chicken, shrimp or other seafood, pork, beef, and tofu. The additional add-in possibilities are endless. You'll find recipes including everything from pineapple to lettuce. You'll also find that other ethnicities have created their own versions of the dish including Spanish, Puerto Rican, Mexican, Thai, and Indonesian.
