>>> this morning on you can do this, fried rice . you can order it but it's simple enough to make at home. he is here with a quick and easy recipe. good morning to you my friend.
>> good to see you.
>> you too.
>> simplest thing ever. i do brown rice white rice combo.
>> brown rice is better for you. if you do 50/50 soak the brown rice for an hour.
>> so you do it rather than repurposing rice.
>> if you have left over rice it's fantastic but if you use fresh rice and make it you better a better fried rice . you might think that's a lot of oil and it is but this is how you make the fluffy scrambled eggs .
>> what if you don't have this here.
>> this is a wok which i love. you can make both the rice, we have a rice cooker like that. if you have it in a stock pot you can make fried rice with it too.
>> once you mix the rice it's everywhere.
>> is fried rice one of the recipes that you can throw anything in there or is it strict ingredients.
>> i'm going to show you a couple of variations.
>> are those eggs done?
>> yeah thank you for noticing.
>> this is a quick simple fried rice . if you could scoop out that for me, please.
>> sure. put it right in there.
>> yeah. there you go. keep going. a little touch of oil. give me three more of those and we're good.
>> now we can add the eggs back.
>> to your point, got to cook the eggs a little more.
>> somehow that.

>> when does the big heaping thing of butter go in there.
>> not today.
>> not today.
>> so this is healthy.
>> it's very healthy. we'll add a little bit of soy sauce . just a touch. it shouldn't be brown, just lightly tan. this is done. the thing i love about using fresh price, see how fluffy it is? it's completely done. because it's hot rice it cooks so quickly.
>> the rice is actually helping cook the egg and everything else.
>> that egg is fully cooked now. so now we can place this up just like this.
>> is fried rice always a side dish or is this the main meal.
>> it's partially the main meal. the thing i like about fried rice is you put meat and stuff in it it becomes it's own entree. here we have fried rice so i'll give you this to try.
>> there's nothing really overly flied about it.
>> there's no frying in fried rice for example. if you use the scallion fried rice as a base you can add stuff, chicken, sausage, pineapple and bell peppers .
>> that's delicious.
>> is that good? chicken sausage, ground pork or any meat. you can do something like this. shrimp fried rice . add poached shrimp.
>> what is that? is it for everybody?
>> if you like garlic and spicy.
>> you chop it up?
>> yeah, great color and spice.
>> just in time.
>> make sure your partner eats it too. if your partner doesn't eat it and you do -- that doesn't work so well.
>> nice to see you.
>> i'll give you --
>> thank you.
>> can we get a chop sticks lesson while we have you here.
>> you didn't put soy sauce in here did you?
>> just a little bit.
>> i like the pineapple. you actually don't -- it's not rude to bring the bowl to your mouth. that's how you do it.
>> this is going to change my life.
>> it's impossible to pick up rice.
>> basically you're shoveling.
