Being Asian requires full knowledge of cooking rice. Well, not just that, we have plenty, like PLENTY, of ways how to cook rice- from desserts to just a regular staple.

Now, plain rice can get a little boring sometimes and you want something to spice it up. I created my own recipe for fried rice depending on my preference and regular availability of ingredients. Also, this is definitely NOT AN AUTHENTIC Chinese/Japanese/Filipino/Korean style fried rice. I hope you’ll like it and let me know what you think about it.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 boneless chicken breast or sausage of your choice
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups steamed rice
  • 1 whole red bell pepper, chunks
  • 1 cup whole corn kernel (optional)
  • cooking oil (I used avocado oil)
  • 1 whole carrot, cut into smaller chunks
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 whole red onion, cut into thin strips
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp chili flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt (feel free to add more)
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • scallions far garnish (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a clean non-stick pan, pour the cooking oil followed by making a scrambled egg
  2. While stirring the scrambled egg, add the chopped onion and garlic and leave it for 2 minutes
  3. Put the chicken or sausage in the pan and make sure to cook it evenly. It normally takes around 4-7 minutes
  4. Flavor it with salt, pepper, garlic powder and chili flakes then toss the carrots
  5. Carefully add the steamed rice
  6. While mixing the rice with the ingredients in the pan, pour the soy sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil. Make sure to mix everything evenly
  7. Add the chunks of red bell pepper and corn
  8. Finish it by adding chili flakes (optional), scallions and chopped fresh onion
  9. Enjoy!
