There is always leftover steamed rice from past dinners, but what to do with it? Recycle it into flavorful fried rice! Traditional Vietnamese fried rice is often served as an entree on the lazy Susan in Little Saigon’s restaurants. And at elaborate wedding dinners, our fried rice often includes bits of crab and even lobster. A heaping plate of fried rice should not be served with salty main dishes, as it is already seasoned and salted. If you have been eager to use your wok, here is your chance, but a large, deep skillet is perfectly appropriate as well. Once you have the idea of this basic recipe, add more of your favorite ingredients—substitute tofu for the sausage, add broccoli or bok choy— any way you like.
