Fried Rice

In our house we make a whole lot of Asian food.   We try to have it once a week because we like it so much.

Generally I make it with tofu but on occasion I’ll make something with chicken or pork.   When we eat Chinese out, we love General Tso’s Tofu at our local Chinese take out place.   I definitely can’t replicate that one.

Whenever we have Asian food we have rice with it.   Most of the time I prepare either jasmine rice or brown rice.  On occasion we’ll buy the fried rice from our local place, but rarely do I make it myself.

Last week was different though.  I don’t know what possessed me to do so, but I decided that I needed to make it this time.   My thought was to use pork and do a pork fried rice, but the last time I did that the pork pieces were too big and it wasn’t very good

I went with a vegetable fried rice that included carrots, peas, and red pepper.   It was combined with a spicy chili, soy sauce, and a few seasonings.

While it didn’t taste quite as good as the fried rice we buy at the Chinese place, it was pretty delicious.  The chili added a nice bit of spice and the veggies added some extra flavor.   This is definitely a fried rice dish that we’ll be making in the future.

  1. Like you I rarely make fried rice however for me its because I’m not someone who eats a lot of rice, so I just tend to buy for Grumpy. When I do get it, I tend to go with vegetable fried for myself. Yours looks delicious!
