  • 3-4 cups of Cold Cooked Rice

  • Marinate beef with 2 tbsp of soy sauce, 1 tsp of Black Pepper, 2 tbsp of Corn starch, 1 tsp of baking soda, and 2.5 tbsp of oil for 10 minutes.
  • Beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
  • In a pan, add in oil, and turn the heat to medium-high. Once the pan is hot, add in the beef and let it sit for 30 seconds.
  • Statue for another 2-3 minutes or until beef is slightly brown, remove and set aside.
  • Using the same pan, add in chopped onion and white parts of the green onion. Saute for 2-3 minutes or until the onion is translucent.
  • Add in beaten eggs, let it sit for 30 seconds, and scramble for 1-2 minutes.
  • Next, add in frozen vegetables and saute for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Using your hands, break up the rice before frying. Add the cold-cooked rice into the pan, along with the beef.

The key to perfect fried rice is using COLD, DAY OLD Rice. Please don’t use fresh rice as it will turn mushy. Before frying, I like to break the rice apart with my hands; it cuts down the cooking time, and each grain will get coated in the sauce.
