How To Make Authentic & Delicious Fried Rice

 

Because I grew up in a restaurant, I know good flavor when I can see and taste it.   

 

And that is why people often ask me how to make authentic and delicious fried rice.

 

But it doesn’t necessarily mean I love to cook.  

 

 

I’m A Lazy Cook

Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that I am the laziest cook on the face of this planet.  I will take shortcuts whenever necessary because I just don’t enjoy cooking.

 

To me, it is a great big time suck!

 

But I do have a family who constantly drools over every dish I make,  with the exception of my picky eating daughter, that is.

 

I’m not even kidding you, they’ll fight each other’s just to lick the bowl and I just take that as a compliment. 😉

 

So here it is, the right way to make authentic and delicious fried rice.
