Yucky Fried Rice Paste

This recipe calls for:

1.5 C cooked rice
1 pepper, medium dice
2 stalks celery, medium dice
1/2 onion, diced
2 eggs
Cooked meat, medium dice
Soy Sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

To prepare:
Cook rice (if no rice cooker on hand, use a pot on the stove)
In a frying pan, heat meat, with the vegetables, salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you would like, until the veggies are soft.
Add cooked rice, and soy sauce.
Once everything is mixed and cooked, crack eggs over and cook.

I didn't actually use a recipe for this, my boyfriend made something similar a few weeks ago and it turned out really good. When we tried to re create it it turned into a horrible mess.

Whether it was the fact we wanted a quick meal and used 5 minute rice;
The fact we weren't careful how much soy sauce we added;
The fact the heat was turned down when adding the eggs turned it into a binding paste;
The fact we didn't scramble the eggs separately (although we've never done that before);
Or maybe it was that we had too much filling in the frying pan, what was supposed to be fried rice stir-fry, we ended up with a oatmeal looking paste mush.


Next time, I'm looking up a recipe for fried rice. I am never being spontaneous again. :(

-The Littlest Chef


  1. I always make an omelet with the egg, salt and pepper first - being careful not to overcook the egg - then chop it to add to my fried rice - works great every time.

  2. I'm not an expert, but I dont think you should have used fresh rice. I've heard its best to use day old rice. So maybe keep it in the fridge the night before? Maybe leave it out,but remember to saran wrap it. Cause rice goes really hard and pretty much becomes impossible to eat if you leave it unwrapped.

    You'd expect someone whos asian to know these things. But no. haha Anyways better luck next time!
