This fried rice is very easy but tastes just like the stuff you get when you eat out. We served it with our Best Sweet and Sour Chicken Ever.
3 cups cooked fried rice (It is best if it is leftover rice or at least one day old.)
3 Tbs oil
1 cup (total) peas and carrots (frozen/thawed or fresh work. We used fresh carrots and frozen peas)
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp garlic, minced
2 eggs (we only used one and it was still great)
1/4 cup soy sauce
Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add the peas, carrots, onion and garlic.Our carrots were fresh but our peas were still frozen so it made the cooking time turn out equal for both of them to get soft.
Stir fry until soft. Then reduce the heat to medium low and push all the vegetables to one side of the pan. Scramble the egg and add it to the pan, pushing it around while it cooks. When it is finished, mix the egg together with the vegetables.
Add the rice and soy sauce, mix together well and cook until everything is heated through.
