  • 2 cups cold cooked rice half short grain, half long grain rice
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 lb thinly sliced meat chicken, beef, pork, bacon, or ham cut into 2-inch strips about 1/2-inch thick)
  • 2-3 large handfuls of uncooked vegetables such as Napa cabbage, green cabbage, bok choy, green and red peppers, snow peas or Chinese broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 2 -3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 green onion stalk chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp gluten-free soy sauce
  • 2-3 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1-2 tsp organic sesame oil


  • Add about 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a cast iron skillet or wok and heat to medium. Saute meat until cooked thoroughly. Add a little salt if desired. Set aside.
  • Add about 1/2 tablespoon of oil to the pan, add eggs, and scramble until done. Set aside.
  • Again, add a little oil or lard and half the onion and garlic. Then, add vegetables. Cook until al dente. Don’t overcook or let it get too soft. Set aside.
  • Add a little oil or lard, add the remaining garlic and onion and saute for a minute, then add the rice. Keep turning over the rice so the garlic and onion really gets in there. Let it cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the gluten-free soy sauce – sprinkling over all the rice to coat it evenly. Saute for another 4-5 minutes, keep turning the rice over to cook evenly. The goal is to have the sauce really get in and cook in the rice. The rice will become more glutinous and sticky. I like to cook it until the rice gets a little browned.
  • Once the rice is complete, add the vegetables, meat, eggs, and sesame oil. Stir everything together to mix well for about 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with green onions.


NOTE: The ideal method to make fried rice is to cook each layer and then remove from the pan, then combine everything together for a final mix for the last minute. If you don’t do this, the vegetables will become too soggy.
