Chinese Beef Fried Rice Recipe

Chinese Beef Fried Rice is really simple to make. It’s one of my ‘goto’ recipes for a one-pot meal. I use leftover rice, pre-marinated beef (done in large batches), and frozen vegetables.  It doesn’t get easier than this.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 2 cups Marinated Beef for Stir-fry (See notes for recipe)
  • 3 cups Frozen Mixed Vegetables

Marinated Beef for Stir fry Recipe

Directions

Step 1
Heat wok
Heat large wok or pan on high and add vegetable oil.
Step 2
Add beef
Add the marinated beef (drain off excessive liquid, but leave some for flavor). Cook beef on high until browned/cooked.
Step 3
Add vegetables
Add frozen vegetables and cook until vegetables are no longer frozen.
Step 4
Add rice, mash if needed to separate
Add rice, and using a masher if needed to break up rice, cook the rice, beef and vegetable mixture until rice is hot and no longer clumped together.
Step 5
Move to side
Move the rice mixture to the side creating a whole to cook the eggs. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to this open area.
Step 6
Add eggs
Pour the eggs into the center, and for 30 seconds or so, don't stir it, let it start to cook.
Step 7
Cook eggs
Slowly push the eggs from side to side to get them to be cooked. Try to keep the eggs separated from the rice, leaving that outer edge alone. If you mix it all in together at this point, the eggs will just bind with the rice and become a coating instead of another element in the dish.
Step 8
Add green onions, mix & cook
Once the eggs are about 80% cooked, add the green onions and mix them in with the rest of the rice/beef mixture.
Step 9
Cook
Cook for another minute to combine all the flavors and serve hot.

Chinese Marinated Beef for Stir-Fry

This recipe is used as a base for many of my Beef Stir fry recipes. You can use as the base for most beef stir fry dishes like Beef with Broccoli, Beef Noodle Soup, etc. I usually make a couple pounds at a time and will then freeze half and then make several different stir fry dishes throughout the week.

Ingredients

  • 2lb Beef (sliced thin)
  • 1/4 cup Garlic (minced)
  • 3/4 cups Soy Sauce (light)
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Oyster Sauce

Note

This will last in the refrigerator based on how long your beef will stay fresh.  Most beef will have about 3 days of freshness, or more.

I found that flap meat is the best type of beef to use.  Do not use london broil, as it will be dry.  Tri-tip is fine.  Skirt steak is good, but is hard to slice thin.

Directions

Step 1
Mix everything together, cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Most stir fry recipes will take about 1/2-3/4 pounds of beef.
