Foodie Friday: ‘No More Leftovers’ Fried Rice

Hello Fellow Food Adventurers,

I’m always catching myself with a ton of leftovers from all those holiday dinners that aren’t enough for a regular meal. My solution is throwing it all in a pan and making fried rice. This is great for if you have any left over chicken, beef, pork and vegetables. Here’s how you can try it out!


  • 4 Cups of jasmine rice, chill in the refrigerator over night
  • Vegetables of your choice frozen is fine:
    • I usually always have frozen carrots and peas
  • 2 Eggs
    • Lightly beaten
  • Left over chicken, turkey, beef, shrimp or pork
  • 4 tbs Soy sauce
  • 2 tbs Oyster sauce 
  • 2 tbs of canola oil

Pan: Medium Heat          Cooking Time: 20 Minutes         Serving: 2-4 people

How to put it all together

  1. Scramble the eggs, cook, and place them in a bowl for later.
  2. Place the canola oil in a large saute pan or wok over medium heat.
  3. Break up the chilled rice and put all of it in the pan and saute for 5 minutes.
  4. Next, add the soy sauce and oyster sauce to the rice and cook for another 5 minutes.
  5. Then add the meat and vegetables of your choice cook for an additional 10 minutes.

Now you are ready to enjoy your leftover fried rice. Boring leftovers will be a thing of the past with this recipe!
