Beef Fried Rice Recipe

Stephanie Gallagher
The secret to making fried rice that tastes like you got it from a Chinese restaurant is using cold cooked rice. Leftover cooked rice is best, but in a pinch, you can make the rice now, then spread it out on a baking sheet and freeze for 15-30 minutes.

Excellent Beef Fried Rice, Member Frattarelli

I made this recipe as the main entree for dinner and the whole family enjoyed it. I didn't have oyster sauce so I didn't use it. I used a pound of ground veal instead of 3/4 lbs ground beef. I needed to put dinner together quickly so I made the rice fresh in my rice maker and used it warm not cold and the recipe still was excellent even though is calls for cold cooked rice. This is a great recipe though to keep on reference when you have leftover rice and want to use it. I served it with egg soup, mini spring rolls and a salad. I would definitely make this again and recommend it highly.
