Four Meat Fried Rice

Fried RiceThis recipe was originally posted on my music site, Lane on Bass. But that was before I created Manly Kitchen. I am now in the process of moving earlier recipes to this site. This time around, I’m going to show you a quick fried rice recipe. You can use this basic recipe with any type of meat and any vegetables you choose.

What I love about fried rice is that it’s all about leftovers. Even the rice should be left over from a previous meal. It’s a great way to feed your family a nutritious meal while cleaning out the fridge. That’s a win-win situation as far as I’m concerned.

So check out the video, then take a look at the ingredients and instructions below.


rice – preferably left over from the night before
onions (spring onions or white)
vegetables – carrots, peas, broccoli florets, etc.
meat or seafood – you can use pretty much anything you want. (I used leftover deer, pork and two kinds of chicken.)
soy sauce (or oyster sauce if you prefer)
oil for frying

Getting it Done:

Scramble eggs lightly. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. Don’t worry about breaking them into small pieces; that will happen when you add it to the rice.

Chop meat into bite sized pieces. Stir fry in oil, along with any root vegetables you may be using (carrots and such).

Add rice to pan; stir like crazy to coat rice with oil and to break up clumps. I actually break up a lot of the clumps before I add the rice to the pan, but most recipes will tell you to do this when you add the rice.

Add one to two tablespoons of soy sauce and stir like crazy to coat everything equally. Start with just a little, then add more if necessary. Soy sauce isn’t really something you can take back if you put in too much.

Add any tender vegetables (peas, broccoli). Continue stirring.

Add the egg and continue stirring. The egg will break up into smaller pieces as you stir.

Serve to plate. If desired, you can dress the plate with a few sliced green onions or parsley flakes.

And that’s it! The great thing is that fried rice is a very open recipe. You can use whatever you like best to create your very own concoction. So the next time you serve rice with a meal, make extra so you can try this out. Then let me know how it went, OK?

Until next time… play with your food!
