About this recipe: White rice is fried with eggs, bacon, soy sauce, green peas and spring onions for a quick and easy midweek meal.
I liked this recipe, but made a few changes. I cooked the rice in advance and refrigerated it for a few hours before starting to prepare the fried rice. Instead of cooking the egg in advance, I just added the beaten uncooked eggs (just 2 eggs)to the rice mixture at the end, stir-frying it until the egg was completely cooked. You can tell when the egg is cooked because it isn't shiny anymore. A Chinese friend taught me how to do this. - 10 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Everyone loves this fried rice. It is very important that you use cold white rice so the rice doesn't get mushy when you fry it. Also, I add some rice vinegar and sesame oil to the side of the pan when frying the rice. You can add cooked chicken, shrimp, or pork also at the end. Great for using up leftovers. - 28 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Sorry, there was an error in Tip 2. Please refer to this one instead: Tip: 2. Remember NOT to use veges that release too much water when frying, like shittake mushrooms. Even if you have the perfect rice grain, it'll just get soggy as the rice soaks up the water. HAPPY COOKING~~~ - 02 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
