Better Than Takeout

When the craving hits, it’s tempting to pick up the telephone and spring for take-out, but when there are so many quick and Easy Homemade Fried Rice.

Microwave: As you can see from this recipe, you can make fried rice without, well, frying! In a few minutes, with only a microwave, you can have that traditional dish you’re craving. If you´re not a huge fan or if you simply don’t have any teriyaki, you may prefer a more traditional Microwave Egg Fried Rice

Stove: If you prefer to prepare this traditional dish the old-fashioned way, grab a skillet and get going on some of our filling fried rice recipes. If your fridge is packed after the holidays, take those leftovers and get creative! In just 30 minutes, you can be serving up big bowls of veggie-packed Southern Turkey Fried Rice! You could also chop up some rotisserie for a similar Chicken Fried Rice meal.

Teriyaki Time

Sweet, tangy, and savory, teriyaki sauce has a complex flavor profile that’s hard to match. It’s undoubtedly a great addition to your condiment shelf in your fridge – that distinct flavor is irresistible in recipes like this Teriyaki Mushroom Fried Rice. If you don’t have any on-hand, chances are you have a suitable alternative in your fridge, even if the dish won’t taste exactly the same.

BBQ: The most similar sauce equivalent would be barbecue, though you’ll want to add a dash of sugar as teriyaki is a sweeter sauce.

Worcestershire: This sweet and savory sauce is a pretty decent substitute; however, the sauce isn’t as thick and it won’t be quite as savory.


Soy: Though this is a tempting option, soy is much saltier and lacks brown sugar, ginger, and garlic.
