What is fried rice?


I think local style fried rice is usually made with short grain rice (Hinode). Most of the time get bacon, Portuguese sausage, char siu and/or spam. Get green onion and regular onion inside and sometimes get other veggies like peas and carrots. The rice is usually evenly coated with shoyu so it looks anywhere from light to dark brown in color. The rice is also coat with certain amount of oil ranging from the dry side to moist. Get plenty more variations on ingrediments than this, but I think this is the foundation and then people put their own style from there.

Some things that I like with local style fried rice are Tabasco sauce, over easy egg, kim chee, ketchup, mac salad, Worcestershire sauce. That's all I can think of right now.
