Chinese fried rice recipe that’s ready in 30 minutes and packed full of veggies!

Earlier this week I shared with you my Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli Recipe….well today I’m sharing my favorite Chinese fried rice recipe to make with that dish.  This recipe is great because I can have it ready in about 30 minutes…almost the time it takes for the broccoli to finish cooking in the Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli recipe!  I also love that I usually have all of the ingredients on hand to make this dish and if I’m feeling extra lazy I can just add some chicken and dinner is done…no other dishes to make!

Anyway, you’ll notice that I don’t use a lot of spices for this dish…that’s because I want to keep it SUPER simple so I always have what I need on hand….nothing’s worse than planning on making something only to realize that you’re missing key ingredients…for me it’s usually spices!

We are a family that LOVES eating Chinese food!  I think we have it about once a week….whether we order take out from the quaint little restaurant up the street or I’m cooking it…we like Chinese a LOT!  If I’m feeling especially productive for dinner I’ll make a whole Chinese meal including Chinese chips from scratch (check out this post– they’re soooooo much easier than you think!), the main course like the Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli, this Chinese fried rice recipe, and the ever scrumptious Chinese donuts (again, sooooooo much easier than you would ever believe!).  So, ready for this super simple recipe?!

Simple enough right?!  Like I said….by keeping this recipe SUPER simple it ensures that you have what you need on hand to make it.  I hate when a recipe calls for a spice that I never use but have to go buy to make the recipe taste right.  I love pairing this simple dish with the Chinese chips, Chinese donuts, and the Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli…..it turns a simple meal into a decadent multi-course experience that requires very little effort on your part!  It’s okay to make them think you slaved away for hours in the kitchen….they’ll appreciate you more! 😉
