Use Up Leftovers Fried Rice

I'm always catching myself with a ton of leftovers that aren't enough for a regular meal. My solution for me is throwing it all in a pan and making fried rice. This is great for if you have any left over chicken, beef, pork and vegetables.


Ingredients

  • 4 Cups of jasmine rice, chilled over night
  • Vegetables of your choice frozen is fine:
    • I usually always have frozen carrots and peas
  • 2 Eggs
  • Left over chicken, beef, shrimp or pork
  • 4 tbs Soy sauce
  • 2 tbs Oyster sauce 
  • 2 tbs of canola oil


Pan: Medium Heat          Cooking Time: 20 Minutes         Serving Size: 2-4 people


How to put it all together


  1. Scramble the eggs, cook, put them in a bowl and set them aside for later
  2. Place the canola oil in a large saute pan over medium heat
  3. Break up the chilled rice and put all of it in the pan and saute for 5 minutes
  4. Next add the soy sauce and oyster sauce to the rice and cook for 5 minutes
  5. Then add the meat and vegetables of your choice cook for 10 minutes
Now you are ready to enjoy your fried rice. Boring leftovers are a thing of the past with the Use Up Leftovers Fried Rice recipe.
