This is one of the best recipes for fried rice that I've come across, and it was an instant hit with my family. The only thing I change is that I don't include the chile. This is a recipe we use over and over again, because it is so good! The sauce is perfect - soy cause and brown sugar has become my stir-fry sauce of choice now. Excellent.
Really easy to make if you omit chopping of most of the herbs. Used only cilantro, frozen snow peas, red onion and minced garlic. Used 3/4 cup brown rice and 1/4 cup wild rice that yielded 4 cups cooked. Thought it was delicious and will be added this to my collection
My husband and I like this recipe and we have made it a few times now. We change it up sometimes with different veggies, or maybe some leftover chicken, but we don't change the sauce or all of those yummy herbs.
I liked this very much! I enjoyed the crunch of the daikon radish and stuck to the original recipe. It also worked great as a reheated lunch.

A great tasting easy weeknight meal. Unlike the previous reviewer, my dish was not at all greasy. I used lemon basil and sliced the daikon radish paper thin with a mandolin. My husband and I both found that the dish was well balanced and very flavorful. This was a great dish to serve my vegetable averse teenager. I will definitely make it again.
While I would not make this recipe again, it may have more to do with my preference. I found the finished product to be very "greasy." I was out of peanut oil and I used vegetable oil, so maybe that played a part? The combination of herbs in this recipe created a very sweet smell that I just couldn't handle. We did finish our dinner, but even my husband asked that I do not make this again. (and he is hte most easy going eater ever.)
