PREVIOUS: Slow Cooker Fried Rice NEXT: Sautéed Bok Choy

Ingredients (10)

  • 3 cups Cooked, cold rice (day-old is best)
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of molasses
  • 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce, (I use 2 tablespoons, I add the 2nd little bit at a time then taste and continue until it tastes the way I want it to)
  • 2 tablespoons of Sesame oil
  • 1 can Sliced water chestnuts
  • ½ bunch of green onions dices, and or white onion (quarter) diced
  • ½ red or yellow (never green) bell pepper diced
  • Cooked chicken or pork (optional)
  • 1 bok choy, shredded

I love Fried Rice, and it is actually made by using left over rice it is so so simple to make.

Fried rice uses leftover rice, of course, but also makes great use of any leftover vegetables or meats. Try adding snow peas or bean sprouts for a really fresh flavor.

Very Important: make sure left over white rice has been refrigerated at least a minimal of 6 hours ~ When I make this dish ~ I make fresh white rice (steamed in steamer) and refrigerate from the night before ~ DELICIOUS AND RESTAURANT QUALITY

Instructions

  1. 1Pour sesame oil in wok or frying pan, turn on medium high: sauté red bell pepper and white onion until brown and or translucent.
  2. 2Add rice and soy sauce. Mix and (sort of) stir fry. Add brown sugar and or molasses’s. Mix thoroughly.
  3. 3Add chopped cooked meat (optional) and water chestnuts during last few minutes of heating. Add bok choy last, make one last mix and remove from heat. Don’t want bok choy to go limp.

When done and removed from stovetop, add green onions. Serve.
