Are you sick of Chinese recipes yet?
I’m not! But seriously, this is the last one. For a while, anyway.
The elusive Chinese fried rice. It’s a staple for sure, but it never tastes exactly like take-out when you make it at home, does it? Well, this recipe is as close as you’re gunna get.
The great thing about fried rice is that you can add whatever you want. I love to whip it up with leftover rice. The basics? Rice, eggs, vegetables and soy sauce.
I found this particular version on food.com, which I don’t normally use, but I like how there are reviews and ratings. I like hearing what other people thought of recipes. This one had rave reviews.
