Our Restaurant Ham Fried Rice recipe tastes just like the fried rice at your favorite local Chinese restaurant. Chicken or shrimp can also be used.
This Restaurant Style Ham Fried Rice tastes just like the fried rice at a Chinese restaurant! I don’t know about you but I am picky about my fried rice. I like it a little on the dry side.. I don’t like it all clumpy and sticky. On the other hand.. I don’t like it TOO dry either. I like to be able to still pick it up with chopsticks without the rice sliding off the end. Also, I don’t like fried rice that is too complicated. I don’t need all sorts or random ingredients in my fried rice. I have seen some that have carrots, peppers, pineapple, baby corn, broccoli etc… definitely not my cup of tea. I like it plain and simple. I mentioned in the recipe below that you can add these ingredients but I, personally, leave them out. See… I told you I was picky about fried rice! I am also VERY VERY picky about Spanish/Mexican rice so feel free to check out our restaurant Mexican rice recipe if you are as picky as I am! Anyway, this fried rice recipe is perfect in my opinion. It meets all of my fried rice requirements!
