Making Chinese Egg Fried Rice is simple and inexpensive option to takeout. 

Chinese Egg Fried Rice

Chinese egg fried rice is made with scrambled eggs and a few frozen vegetables that make it very traditional. Oh and it’s a bit spicy too because this recipe utilizes some red chili paste, you can omit if you’d prefer. This recipe is one of my go to takeout inspired recipes to make at home.

The trick to making GOOD Chinese fried rice is to cook the rice the day prior, I like to cook my rice always in a “rice cooker” it cooks it just perfectly every time.

Then I will remove it from the rice cooker and leave it uncovered for 24 hours on the shelf. In which I will use for the next day, to make this recipe.

Leaving it on the shelf for 24 hours allows it to dry out enough to make the most perfect fried rice.

Then when your ready to make the rice you will simply add the cooking oil to the pan and then dump the rice out frying it till it reaches the level of cripsyness you desire.

Once it has you then can remove the rice, add then place 1 tbsp of sesame oil back into the pan along with the eggs to scramble.

Once the eggs have scrambled, add back in the rice and mix well.

Feel free to sauté some chicken, shrimp or beef on the side and mix that in if desired.
