Fried Rice Simple Fried Rice


NOTE:

. Fried rice could be a dish by itself, although it's a great dish to turn leftover to a great dish too. Below is a recipe for a simple fried rice. But, we can use leftover stir fry vegetable or meat too. Below I use cabbage, but one can use chinese cabbage, brocolli, bean sprout, leftover veggie, etc.

Rice cooker is pretty common in China (also in the USA :) It's a good tool to have. It saves lots of hassle to cook a perfect bowl of rice.

. For meat, use a tender meat. For example sirloin, chicken breast or chicken drumstick which has more flavour. But it's all up to the taste, one can omit meat too and have a great vegetarian dish!
