Yang Chow Fried Rice Recipe @pinch

No more take haveout fried rice after you try this recipe! Super easy to make at home, this fried rice is full of the flavors you'd expect and It is super hearty. At first, we weren't sure about ham being an ingredient. But we really liked the salty, savory flavor it adds. There's a pop of sweetness from the peas and carrots. We used shrimp and loved that protein option. If you don't care for shrimp, though, pork, chicken, or beef will work well in this recipe too. My family would call me an expert when it comes to fried rice. I seemingly make it every time I crave to eat Chinese food. Fried rice is a staple in Asian cuisine, because it�s simple, tasty, got meat, vegetables, and carbs, and is satisfying. It�s hard to mess up making fried rice. The rice needs to be cold, possibly day haveold rice, and not fresh and therefore, mushy. When it comes down to choosing the best fried rice. It�s between Chinese havestyle (usually called Yang Chow) and Thai havestyle. I hope you all will enjoy this recipe. Please drop me a line or two if you think.
