Recipes: Beef Fried Rice

In my family, fried rice is traditionally a dish you prepare when you have lots of left-over bits that you don’t know what to do with. It’s a dish you prepare on the fly with minimal thought given to it. This particular fried rice dish, however, was entirely intentional right down to the rice prepared.

Beef fried rice


  • 2 rice bowls of rice cooked in beef stock (Campbell’s Real Stock works just fine)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 100g of bean sprouts
  • 100g of baby spinach leaves
  • 100g of white mushrooms, sliced
  • 200g of beef, sliced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ground garlic
  • dash pepper
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • dash of red wine


  • In a bowl, add cooked rice with pepper, garlic, ginger and soy sauce. Mix well. Set aside.
  • Stir fry the beef and add red wine. Add bean sprouts, spinach and mushrooms. Drain the liquid.
  • Add a little more oil and add in the egg.
  • Once the egg is mostly cooked, stir in the rice. Cook a little longer until everything is thoroughly mixed.
  • Remove from heat and serve.

How did it turn out? Very well. Even DH couldn’t complain about this one…
