Recipe Notes

If you don't already have leftover rice you will need to make some in advance and allow enough time for it to chill completely.

As with any stir-fried dish, preparation is key. Have everything you need ready to go. Once you start the stir fry, items are added quickly, there's no time to prep.

Fried rice is the perfect way to use up leftover vegetables, pork, chicken or shrimp. Don't hesitate to add what you have on hand.
