Easy Fried Rice-perfect for using up leftovers or just make it because you love Fried Rice!
I’m not a big Chinese food eater. First off, it’s hard to know what something is on the menu.
Let me tell you, my first encounter with Lobster sauce was also my last, yuck! Not what I thought it would be at all. Chow Mein, Lo Mein, Moo Goo Gain Pan. I don’t have a clue what these are and after the Lobster Sauce incident, I’m not willing to find out.
Even basics, like Chicken with Snow Peas or Pepper Steak with Mushrooms can get you. Not all Chinese restaurants make food the same. Trust me on this one.
The one thing they all offer, rice.
Fried Rice. Yeah, they have the steamed version too, and I have one child that would rather have the white rice than the fried but back to the subject at hand, they all offer Fried Rice. With Pork, with Chicken, with shrimp. You know what? It’s hard for Chinese restaurants to change up fried rice. You can be pretty sure what you’re gonna get if you order it. Maybe an extra pea or carrot in there but no big surprises (like Lobster sauce being all slimy.)
So Fried Rice is always a must when going Chinese.
Fried Rice is also a great way to use up left overs at home. And it’s so easy to make!
