Before the end of the work day yesterday, Rose called to ask me what she should make with the leftover white rice she had from her Chinese Chicken with Broccoli. I suggested Fried Rice. The task of making her own fried rice seemed daunting to her so she handed the half empty carton to me and said “I think this is a job for your blog”.
Thats a Challenge Rose and I will accept it!
Please note that I did not refer to a recipe nor can I confirm this is the actual way to make fried rice. Its just yummy, ‘k?
To start this project, I heated 2 tbsp of oil in a skillet on Medium heat and added the white rice to the pan.
I tossed it around to get it coated with some oil and then I added some salt and onion powder. It was at this point that I realized Fried Rice has sauteed onions in it… too late now.
So I dropped an egg into the rice and stir fried it. I gave it a taste and i must say this rice came out pretty darn tasty. Might not be “take out” but it can pass as “fake out take out”.
And to make a believer out of Rose I made her lunch today. Chicken wings (from Super Bowl) and fried rice!
