This recipe wasn't quite the perfect one for me. The serrano chile made this a little too spicy for me, and I don't think I'd keep that in the recipe next time. Otherwise the flavors were fine and I'd make it again. I served it with chicken marinated in sweet chile and hoisin sauce.
Fried Rice with Sweet Soy Sauce-adapted from Cooking Light's Dinner Tonight!
Total Time: 35 Minutes
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 large eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 finely chopped shallot
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 chopped serrano chile (which I will be omitting next time-it was too hot for me)
- 4 cups cooked rice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced radishes
- 1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in skillet over medium high heat. Cook eggs until set, turning once. Remove eggs from pan and set aside. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together soy sauce and brown sugar to make sweet soy sauce.
Turn up heat on pan to high, and add in remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Stir fry shallot, garlic and chile for 1 minute. Add rice and stir fry for 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Add cooked eggs, sweet soy cauce, salt and pepper and toss to combine.
Top with radishes and herbs. Serve with protein of your choice.
