Yang Chow Fried Rice Recipe

Updated on March 20, 2015

How to Make Yang Chow Fried Rice

Although Yang Chow fried rice originated in eastern China (Yang Zhou), but it is popular throughout the world. Contrary to other variants of fried rice with heavy soy sauce and seasoning, it is very lightly seasoned with no soy sauce at all. Because its clean and fresh flavor, Chinese love to serve it at the end of a formal banquet such as wedding, birthday or other celebration. Ordinarily baked or boiled ham is used but Chinese barbecued pork can make a great Yang Chow style fried rice too.

This fried rice recipe is very simple. You just need very little ingredients to make this classic Chinese dish. The cooking process itself is easy to follow. All you need is a decent Chinese wok. That's all. Some people love to add egg and or light soy sauce to their personal version of Yang Chow fried rice.

What You Need

Serves 2-4

4 cup cold cooked rice

5 oz small shrimp (chopped)

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 cup frozen peas

1 cup diced cooked ham

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped spring onions

1/4 tsp ground white pepper

  • Add the remaining vegetable oil, peas and rice. Continue to stir-fry for about 2-3 minutes or until the rice is heated through. Use the spatula to break up the rice lumps.

      This looks so light and fresh, not heavy like some of the fried rice. You have inspired me to dig out the wok and give this a try.

      An interesting version. I have usually seen it with some soy sauce added. I routinely do Chinese stir-fries in a large cast iron frying pan because I have an electric stove and woks do not work well with them.
