Easy Soy Sauce Fried Rice Recipes (酱油炒饭)
- 400 grams of cooked rice
- 2 tbsp of soy sauce
- 2 tbsp of pork lard
- Diced spring onion for garnish optional
Turn the heat to high and heat the wok until it is smoking hot. Toss in the pork lard and swirl it around to melt it.
- Add the rice. Stir it thoroughly for a few minutes or until you can smell a slight toasty rice aroma.
- Drizzle the soy sauce from the edge of the wok and mix well. Optionally, you can sprinkle some spring onion as garnish.
For a gas flame stove, the edge is usually hotter than the center of the wok. When soy sauce hits the hot wok, it will caramelize immediately and create a complex flavor that brings the fried rice to another level; that’s why those strong commercial stoves always make better-tasting fried rice.
