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.

The chile made this too spicy for me to eat! I think I'd try it again, just without the chile.

Very nice combination. It's good even without the egg & herbs. Using pre-cooked brown rice makes it extra-fast. A crowd-pleasing winner!

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. Check out my post here: http://www.icancookthat.org/2011/07/fried-rice-with-sweet-soy-sauce.html

I also didn't find this greasy, but it was pretty boring and while I liked the herbs I found the daikon radsish on top annoying.

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.)
