Everybody loves fried rice. Living where we live there is not a single restaurant that serves decent fried rice. Those who serve, serve it fancy. When I want fried rice, I just want simple Fried Rice Restaurant Style.
Modifications Made: Rice was cooked the day before and allowed to dry in the fridge over night. Then it was dried further in the skillet by dry cooking it with a bit of oil. The drier the rice, the better the meal. Rice was removed and eggs were scrambled in the remaining rice goodies. Peas. This is not a Dr. Seuss book and I will not like them. Not now, not then, not ever. Instead I substituted with edamame. Edamame offers better crunch, less sweetness, and more nutrient. Both the carrots and the soy were steamed in microwave to retain good stuff.
Scaled for Likability: Great
No, this not the best fried rice. The best fried rice requires a wok and a heat source allowing high amount of heat. I don't have either and this never fully gets to fried. But it is not white rice either as there is crunch to the rice. It was simple and easy and good.
