Viral Best Fried Rice (Takeout Style!)



Category: Main Dish
Method: Stir Fried
Cuisine: Asian

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 1x
Diet: Vegetarian

INGREDIENTS

1/2 yellow or white onion
2 large garlic cloves
1 tablespoon minced ginger (about 1 inch nub)
2 large carrots
2 cups chopped green cabbage (optional)
3 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
4 eggs*
1/2 cup frozen peas
4 cups cooked rice, at least 1 day old (use How to Cook Rice or Instant Pot Rice), or use shortcut**
3 to 4 tablespoons soy sauce (or liquid aminos)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon fish sauce (optional)
Green onion, for garnish (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

Mince the onion. Mince the garlic. Mince the ginger. Peel the carrots, then dice them. If using, chop the cabbage.
In a large skillet or wok, heat 2 tablespoons of the sesame oil medium high. Saute the carrots and onion for 2 minutes. Add the cabbage, garlic and ginger and saute for 2 minutes. Stir in the rice, peas and salt for 1 minute.
Push the rice to the side. Add 1 tablespoon more oil. Add the eggs and pinch of salt, and scramble them in for 1 to 2 minutes until cooked through.
Add the soy sauce and fish sauce, if using. Taste and add additional soy sauce if necessary. Heat for a minute or two, stirring, until all rice is coated. Serve hot.

NOTES


*For a vegan variation, make a Tofu Scramble first, keeping the pieces fairly small. Make the rice without the egg, then stir in the scrambled tofu in the last step. 

**Trick: If you don’t have day old rice, here’s a shortcut. Make the rice. Then spread it onto a rimmed sheet pan and put it into the freezer. Freeze for about 15 to 20 minutes until the grains become cool to the touch. Some might even become frozen: that’s ok! They’ll heat right back up once they hit the pan.
