Legit Fried Rice


Here is a basic fried rice that you can add and build on to make your own with veggies, meats, and other spices. The major thing you need to keep in mind is not to crowd the pan at any time; your veggies will steam and make everything soggy and your pan temperature will go up and down, making getting a crisp fried rice hard to do.
