Authentic Chinese Fried rice Recipes
I always feel a little short-changed when I eat fried rice at a restaurant. Most of the time, it is 90-95 percent rice and five to ten percent meat and vegetables. Although I like to joke that "my version" is the opposite (i.e. 95 percent meat and veggies, five percent rice), it's probably closer to 50/50.
Fried rice recipes will vary widely, depending on what country you are from. I'll share my "Hawaiian" version with you.
To my way of thinking, this is the secret to a good fried rice (I'm not sure I'd use the word "legit, " though).
It is called char siu - a Chinese style barbeque pork.
The best ones can be found at your local Chinatown or other Chinese barbeque shop (where they sell roast pork, roast duck, soy sauce chicken, etc.). You could try making it at home, but I've never been successful in duplicating the flavor you can get when you just buy it from a shop that who makes and sells a ton of this meat everyday.
Chop the meat up into 1/4" inch portions. I like to make it so small that there are a lot of pieces, insuring me a piece of meat with 'every' bite of rice I take. The burnt parts of the meat are soooo awesome, so if you can pick a piece that has a lot of charring, that's the best one. The high fat content of this particular cut of pork also adds a ton of flavor to the fried rice dish.
In Hawaii, it is not uncommon to also add Spam or Portuguese sausage, either as a replacement for char siu or an "in addition to" ingredient.
As others have mentioned, eggs and sauteed onions are a must. The more the merrier. Don't be stingy.
You can also add frozen peas and carrots, along with chopped green onions, to add flavor and color.
Seasoning-wise, I add:
- 2 to 3 tsp soy sauce
- 1-1/2 tsp sesame oil
- 1/2 to 1 tsp salt and pepper, to taste
Cooking technique wise, I agree with the methods in the other answers - cold rice, hot oil and pan.
On occasion, I have added a couple of teaspoons of . It is made from dried seafood including scallops, dried fish and shrimp and is cooked with chili peppers, onions, garlic and oil. Although it is very expensive, it adds a wonderful flavor if you want fried rice with a twist. It can be found in most Chinese supermarkets (or online).vulnerability management waste management colorado springs point72 asset management management training kw property management social media management tools emerson process management hudson home management hertz farm management microsoft project management software call waste management sports management degree project management template locations property management riot account management american community management investment management agreement category management acquiring, storing, and inventorying resources are part of which nims management characteristic? lazard asset management management consultant anger management (tv series) project management training sacramento delta property management sports management salary wbs project management m&m property management property management las vegas engineering management human resources management system integrity property management construction management software business management software innovative property management hr management waste management spokane waters management which of the following is not part of the nims management characteristic of chain of command? rental management management style payroll management waste management schedule 2021 johnson property management real page utility management free anger management classes waste management tucson disk management frontier property management precision property management risk management jobs progressive management systems voepel property management stage management preferred property management homeowners property management sundance property management able property management regional management pain management clinics near me office management red light management property management jobs near me va debt management pain management doctors that prescribe narcotics soros fund management account management website san diego property management sport management otg management what is product management change management certification property management bend oregon douglas elliman property management property management columbia sc key property management aspen ridge management presidential management fellows jp morgan asset management four functions of management task management software water management incident management safety management
