Who doesn’t like fried rice? It’s obviously a great accompaniment to Chinese food, but we enjoy it so much that we have learned it can easily be turned into a stand-alone meal. So when I have leftover protein — whether it’s shrimp, ham, ground beef, rotisserie chicken, or shredded pork — I know I’m just a pot of rice away from an easy dinner.
As far as vegetables go, feel free to throw in your favorites. We like the traditional carrots beans and peas, but I know lots of people might enjoy green onions as well.
