Easy Fried Rice

There are many ways to make classic Chinese style Fried Rice, but you will find no easier way than with this recipe.


3 eggs, large in size and beaten
3 cloves of garlic, crushed and minced
1 piece of ginger, 2 inches in length, peeled and grated
1 bunch of green onions, chopped and with green and white parts separated
pound of bacon, fully cooked and crumbled
3 tbsp. of soy sauce
tsp. of salt
tsp. of pepper
8 cups of rice, fully cooked and long grain
2 tbsp. of peanut oil or oil that you prefer to use


Preparation time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4


The first thing that you will want to do is heat up a medium to large sized wok over medium to high heat. Then add 1 tablespoon of your preferred oil to the work and pour your eggs into it. Quickly scramble them, making sure that you chopped them up into small pieces as you do so. Once the eggs are cooked remove them from your wok and set aside.

Add in your remaining oil to the pan and add in your chopped green onions, bacon, minced garlic and grated ginger. Toss gently until all of the ingredients become fragrant. This should take about 1 minute or less. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper before adding your cooked rice to your pan next. Toss gently with your garlic and ginger mixture until evenly combined.

Last add in your soy sauce and cooked eggs to your wok and continue to toss to combine everything together nicely. Continue cooking for additional minute before removing from heat. Serve at once.
