Kitchen Sink Fried Rice Recipe: Anything Goes With This Quick & Easy Fried Rice Recipe by Donna John
After making brown sugar country ribs (if you haven't tried this pork recipe, you are missing out!), I chopped the meat off the bone to use in my kitchen sink fried rice recipe. Why is it called kitchen sink fried rice? Because you can throw in whatever you have in the fridge or pantry.
Use whatever meat you have leftover or on hand. Ground beef, chopped steak or brisket, ground chicken or chopped, cooked leftover chicken, pork or even sausage are delicious in this fried rice. Vegetarian? Leave it out! If you don't want to use frozen vegetables, throw in leftover or fresh vegetables like broccoli, carrots, corn, green beans, peas, mushrooms, snow peas or sugar snap peas. Anything goes in this quick rice recipe
This easy fried rice recipe is a complete meal, though who wouldn't love a crispy egg roll with it?
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 to 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6
- vegetable oil (I used about 1 teaspoon)
- onion, sliced or chopped (I used red onion)
- green onions, chopped (plus more for garnish)
- cooked white rice, preferably cold (I used 2 bags of jasmine boil-in-bag-rice)
- leftover chopped pork, chicken or beef (I used leftover country pork ribs)
- garlic, minced (I used about 5 cloves)
- low-sodium soy sauce, to taste
- sweet soy sauce, to taste
- Maggi seasoning, to taste
- frozen mixed vegetables or fresh chopped vegetables
- eggs (I used 3 eggs)
Here's how to make it:
Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and green onions and cook until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds.
Add the chopped meat and cook, stirring, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the rice and cook, stirring, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Season with a little salt and black pepper (I use a lot of black pepper). Add soy sauce, sweet soy sauce and Maggi seasoning, to taste, or desired seasonings. Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes.
Add the frozen vegetables and cook, stirring, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Make a hole in the center of the rice. Crack desired amount of eggs into the hole. Cook, stirring them in the center of the pan gently, until just set, then stir to distribute them throughout the rice.
Add more chopped green onions. Taste and add more soy sauce and other seasonings, if needed.
