I did not care too much for this rice. Although this is my first time cooking jasmine rice, I do not like the fish sauce flavor added into this rice. The reason I rate this a three is because ev...

This is EXCELLENT! It makes a great base for fried rice, with limitless options for add-ins. I made mine without the chicken and cilantro; threw in a handful of julienned carrots with the gar...

I am eating this as we speak. I made exactly as written except I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. It is so easy to throw together and is not your traditional fried rice that I am used ...
