Quick & Easy Fried Rice With Bacon And Peas

Fried Rice with Bacon & Peas
Left over white/steamed rice, unless cooked at home, usually turns hard and inedible the next day.  I usually freeze the left over rice in Ziploc bags until I'm ready to turn it into fried rice.


2 cups cold cooked white rice (preferably short-grain sticky rice)
1 Tbsp. dark roasted sesame oil
2 tsp. dark soy sauce
3 Tbsp. light soy sauce
4-5 slices bacon
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
4-5 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp. butter
1 large egg, beaten with salt & pepper
1 cup peas
2-3 stalks green onion, chopped

  1. Remove all lumps from the rice with your fingers.
  2. Pour sesame oil and soy sauces on rice and mix until rice is coated well.  Set aside. 
  3. Fry bacon until crispy.  Remove bacon, crumble and set aside.
  4. In the same pan, heat vegetable oil and saute onion and garlic until translucent.
  5. Add rice and crumbled bacon to pan and toss.
  6. Make a well in the center of the rice and melt butter in well.
  7. Add beaten egg.  When it begins to set, combine it with the rice.
  8. Stir frozen peas into rice and garnish with green onions.
  9. Serve immediately.


  1. I never thought to freeze the leftover rice. You're right... it sometimes turns hard in the refrigerator. Thanks for the tip, and the yummy recipe!
