How to Make Simple Beef Fried Rice

Being an Asian, we tend to eat a lot of rice at home.  Whenever I need to make a quick hot meal, I prefer to make beef fried rice because it's easy to make.  You'll need the following:

Simple Beef Fried Rice. Be sure to use day old or cold rice for best result.

Beef Fried Rice
  • 2 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1/2 lb. beef, sliced
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups cooked rice, cold or day old
Here's how I cook beef fried rice:

First, combine soy sauce, sugar and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl and set aside. Heat oil in a heavy nonstick skillet over medium high heat.

Then, cook eggs about 45 seconds, stirring constantly, until eggs are just set. Transfer eggs to a bowl and set aside. Add beef, peas and carrots to same pan over medium heat. Sauté about 3 minutes, stirring often until meat is browned. Stir in ginger and garlic and cook 1 minute. Discard excess fat. Increase heat to high and add rice. Stir-fry about 1 minute, until heated through. Stir in soy sauce mixture and eggs and stir-fry 30 seconds longer.

Quick and easy. Can be prepped within 20 minutes or less.  Sometimes, I drink a mango smoothie afterwards for dessert.

If you're looking for nutrition on fried rice, take a note of the following nutritional facts from Livestrong.com:
Fried rice ingredients and ingredient amounts are what largely determines the dish's nutrition facts. Using larger amounts of oil and high fat cuts of meat can boost calorie and fat totals and skimping on vegetables means fewer essential vitamins and minerals. The tofu fried rice from "Cooking Light" uses reduced fat tofu and low sodium soy sauce to cut fat and sodium amounts and lower the total calorie count. It also uses veggies including peas, carrots and green onions.
