how to make fried rice

Demetra Overton
I cooked this in a wok but a large skillet will work as well
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 40 mins
Servings 4 -6 servings


  • 2-3 carrots
  • 1/2 an onion about a 1/2 cup chopped
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli
  • canola coconut or vegetable oil for stir frying
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups cooked meat sausage or shrimp (optional)
  • 3 cups cooked white rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce


  • Peel and chop the carrots and onion. Have all the veggies and meats chopped and ready to go
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in your wok
  • Beat the eggs and scramble them in the hot oil. Use your spatula to chop the scrambled egg up a bit. I like to soft scramble the egg because it will continue to cook in the hot rice.
  • Remove the scrambled egg from the wok-skillet and set aside
  • Add more oil to the wok/skillet if you need and stir fry the vegetables and meats in batches. Remove this from the skillet and set aside
  • Break up the rice and stir fry it add the grated ginger and soy sauce and stir fry to coat.
  • Add the eggs, veggies and meats back to the wok/skillet
