Perfect Fried Rice



One day while grocery shopping I ran across a fried rice seasoning sauce and decided to buy it and try my hand at fried rice. I absolutely love Benihana's fried rice but anywhere else, eh, not so much.

This seasoning is part of what makes this so delicious, its called Mr. Wong's Oriental Wok Perfect Fried Rice Seasoning. It seems the only place you can buy it is Kroger or online. You can find the online version here on this page, Fried Rice Seasoning There is also a link to the recipe that's on the back of the bottle. That was a bit of inspiration for my recipe. But after all the goodies I added, this rice is as close to Benihana's as you could possibly come!

Have all your ingredients on hand and easy to get to as the steps will move pretty quickly. You can use regular long grain rice but I find the jasmine has a nice nutty flavor and brings out the sesame oil nicely.



Ingredients:

2 Cups uncooked Jasmine Rice
4 Cups Water
2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Eggs, beaten
1/4 Cup Yellow Onion, chopped finely
1/3 Cup frozen Peas and Carrots Mix
3 Green Onion, chopped
2-3 Garlic Cloves, minced
3 Tablespoons Butter
1/3 to 1/2 Cup of Oriental Wok Perfect Fried Rice Seasoning



Add 4 cups water to large pot. On medium high heat bring to a boil. Add rice. Cover and turn heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes or until all water is absorbed. Set aside.

In a very large non stick skillet or wok if you have one, you'll end up with four cups of rice in the end, add sesame and olive oils. Heat on medium high heat.

Once heated,add beaten egg and spread around. Cook until just set. Break up and push to side of pan. I like to move my pan where the heat isn't so much on the eggs but on the rest of the pan for the next step.

Add yellow onion, peas and carrots to cleared area in skillet. Add small handful of green onions. Saute until yellow onions become translucent. 

Clear an area in center of pan, add butter. Immediately add minced garlic on top of butter. Let melt. Mix everything all together in skillet now.

Add fried rice seasoning. Stir well. I always start with a 1/3 cup of seasoning, sometimes I may need more when mixing the rice in with it. Most of the time I use the amount that's between a 1/3 and 1/2 cup.

Add half of cooked rice to skillet. Mix well. Add remaining rice and mix until sauce is evenly incorporated. Add remaining green onions to top of rice.
