Beef it Up

This recipe is a slight variation on your typical fried rice recipe that uses precooked and chilled rice. Sautéing the meat and vegetables first gives the dish a great base flavor that then combines with whole grain rice. Cooking it all together in a wok helps to distribute the flavor evenly.

Make it vegan! Adapt this recipe to your next meatless Monday party by swapping out the beef with tofu and using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

Wok it up

A wok is a great addition to your kitchen. The benefit of using a wok over a frying pan is that when cooking with a wok the ingredients cook more quickly because the heat is distributed more evenly throughout the wok bowl.

And you can cook more than just fried rice dishes in your wok! Use it for making popcorn, fajita filling, for deep frying and even for tossing salads, like this Asian Chicken and Rice Salad!
