What’s In Your Fried Rice?

I know, a lot cannot relate to this post, because they don’t eat rice for their meals since it’s not their staple food. But for those from Asian countries, I know they make fried rice. Usually, I make fried rice, on the evening of Saturdays from leftover rice for lunch. I just fry lots of chopped crushed garlic together with the left-over rice. Sometimes, I would just break 3 or 4 eggs into the fried rice when it is nearly cooked and would sauté them all well together. Or I would fry the eggs first then chop them into small pieces and scatter them into the rice I am frying. Sometimes, I put slices of Chinese sausage. It makes the fried rice so tasty and very nice smelling. But I always put lots of sautéed chopped and lots of crushed garlic. I love eating the garlic. Sometimes also, I would put slices of the left-over pork adobo or the left-over of roasted chicken we bought. Everybody would eat the fried rice and it’s a blockbuster. So, for those who eat rice, what’s in your fried rice? Note: Pictures are from google

i love chinese sausage, too. my sister have done fried rice with left-over adobo. with leftover roasted chicken, if you're referring to lechon manok, we tend to make lechon paksiw with it by cooking it with mang tomas liver sauce.

Indeed, the Chinese sausage makes the fried rice so tasty. Yes, I am referring to lechon manok. I didn't have a notion that it can also be made into lechon paksiw. You gave me an idea for next time there are a lot of left-overs of what I can do to make the lechon manok a different dish. Thank you for sharing this idea.

@SIMPLYD i'm not even sure if we're doing it correctly, so we just buy mang tomas (since it's already seasoned/timplado) and add garlic, peppercorn, bay leaf and vinegar. i hope you make something better and more authentic.

Yes, actually, we can make a lot of variants of fried rice, depending on the stuff we would like to mix in it. If we want it so tasty we put seafoods or chicken. Usually for us we put Chinese sausage to make it so tasty.

Oh I can relate very much to this, and here is my recipe for fried rice, depending on the availability of the ingredients: I would want to make my own fried rice and I usually add with garlic and onions, then if there is available instant noodles I would crushed and add them including the seasoning, then if the oyster is available I will also put it. I can also use Vigan longasina or bacon for my fried rice.

So you put onions in your fried rice. Wow, instant noodles ! And vigan longganisa would really be a hit! It is so delicious by itself, how much more added to fried rice.

Did you see one of those fried rice. They have shrimps. Shrimps are costly though so we only use what is available at the house. They come out so delicious even if they are simply fried.

Yes, in Chinese restaurants they have fried rice, which they call Chao fan. They make delicious fried rice, with peas and a lot more. I assure you, I make a delicious fried rice, even if it is a simple one, not much garnishings.

my latest favorite food in Chowking is the chao fan. i fry our rice from dinner with just 2 cloves of garlic and cooking oil. that is enough especially if i fry some dried fish and slice some tomatoes, and put some vinegar to dip the fish.

True, chao fan of Chowking is so delicious. Actually their egg rice which is actually a fried rice is so tasty also. Garlic alone when we put it on fried rice can make it so delicious.

Yes, that's usually my two ingredients. With the eggs, do you just break it and mix it into the rice or you fry them first and slice them? But either way, they make the fried rice delicious.

When you break raw eggs into your rice being fried, you mix them well into it and they would really add tastiness to your fried rice. Or you can fry the eggs first, slice them and mix them into your fried rice. I bet you that you will find it delicious.

My fried rice usually looks like the first pic. Mixed veggies and eggs; colored brown with soy sauce. Sometimes I add meat pieces. Sometimes I don't.

So, that first picture is actually made brown by the soy sauce. I don't use soy sauce, just salt. But I think I should try that.

@SIMPLYD Ah, alas no - I usually eat my fried rice with a big side of meat. Sometimes (not often) I will fry up some beef bacon and add to it, too. --- Oh yes, summer squash (similar to zucchini) is quite good in there I've found. Butter and garlic too! :-)
