I sauteed mushrooms, red pepper, carrots, minced garlic, celery and green onion in olive oil, a little butter and soy sauce, seasoned with a little ginger...added 2 pints of leftover "chinese restaurant" rice, added more soy sauce and oil, scrambled up 2 eggs in all of it and heated thoroughly.....delicious!!!!!

You have overcomplicated this. Just sauté your veggies in seasame oil and push to one side of pan. Lower heat and add raw eggs for scrambling on the opposite side. When done, increase heat mix with rice and add soy/oyster sauce. All in one pan!

This recipe is amazing and very easy to make. If your not a meat eater then you could also replace the chicken with tofu or fish.

I like the fried rice when I go to a Tia Restraunt that is called Tia Fried Rice that I can get that can be gotten in different degrees of hot spice. What is used to get the spicy taste? Also when is it added to the dish?

I love fried rice. The addition of garlic is a must. And use butter - gives it so much more flavor.

I have to say, this was neat to see the take on fried rice, but my family has been doing ours differently. I don't use that much oil at all. We always add veggies and meats first, with sesame oil and soy sauce, cooked rice, adjust with soy sauce and sesame oil after rice has been fully incorperated & scrabbled eggs last because they dry out too fast. But a good video for beginners.
