Recipe Tips

  • Prepare Griddle – We recommend preheating griddle to medium low heat before placing the meat on the grill. This allows the meat to cook without sticking and keeps the steak tender.
  • Vegetables – If you are using frozen vegetables, there is no need to thaw. You can place them on the griddle frozen.
  • Combining Ingredients – Allow the rice mixture to combine together with the other ingredients for the best flavor. The large cooking surface allows to make a lot in a short amount of time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Make Fried Rice on the Stovetop

This fried rice is delicious on the stove top making it in a skillet or a wok over medium to high heat. I still follow the same steps as if I am cooking on the griddle, but cooking it in a skillet. The rice still comes out with a crispy texture and all the ingredients combines perfectly.

How to Store Leftover Fried Rice

Store leftover fried rice in the refrigerator in an airtight container. The fried rice will last about 3-4 days and we think it taste even better the next day.
