How To Make Fried Rice
The key to great fried rice is using leftover day old rice. I was able to buy a one pound bag of brown rice from Walmart for .88 cents.
By cooking it the day before the rice will slightly dry out and soak up all the flavors of the pan.
Brown the ground beef in a 12 inch pan until just cooked through. Remove beef from the pan and cook the broccoli and green onions in the same pan.
Add a splash of soy sauce to season the veggies then add the brown rice and beef back to the pan. Add 3 tablespoons of soy sauce then cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
Make a well in the middle of the pan and add the whisked eggs. Stir continuously until the eggs come together then mix the eggs into the rice.
Add the green onions, mix well, and take the pan off the heat. Serve and enjoy!
