Steak Fried Rice

Updated on May 19, 2015

Family Tradition

Growing up I've always enjoyed eating Chinese food. My family and I would order from our favorite Chinese take-out place at least once a week. No matter what I ordered, I would always get a side of fried rice. That, for me, was the highlight of the meal.

Now that I have my own family, I wanted to share the once a week tradition of having Chinese food with them. Instead of ordering take-out, which gets rather expensive, I make my own fried rice at home. Its very simple to make and everyone loves it!

Additional Vegetables

to suit your individual taste

There is a variety of additional items that you can add to the fried rice to delight your palate.

Try adding:

- Broccoli

- Corn

- Green peppers

- Water crescents

- Or any other vegetable that you desire

Additional Sauces

to make the dish complete!

- Ginger Sauce

- White Sauce

- Duck Sauce

- Teriyaki Sauce

Ginger sauce makes a perfect topping for my fried rice, but my family prefers white sauce. Since there are so many different tastes, it's important to offer a variety of sauces when serving your family and/or guests. Its also nice to provide extra soy sauce so each individual may add more to their plate if they desire to.

      @Charito1962: Thank you for visiting Charito! Such a great memory to have with your parents. I'm hoping that my daughter will appreciate and keep memories of the small family traditions that we have, especially fried rice night. :-)

      My siblings and I grew up eating Chinese food. Our late parents used to take us to a Chinese restaurant on weekends. We just love it!

      My husband and I usually have steak night on Fridays. We love fried rice, too, but I don't fix it nearly often enough. This might be a good alternative to our steak night, especially when the price of steak is particularly high. Your recipe sounds delicious - and easy!
