Yang Chow Fried Rice

Yang Chow fried rice is practically a meal by itself – it has some meat, veggies and carbs but it’s more satisfying to eat with delectable dishes that one normally orders along with it in a Chinese restaurant.

I don’t really make this often at home, it’s too much work compared to my favorite garlic fried rice but yang chow actually is quite easy, too; there’s a lot of chopping involve but then again if you have a  mini-chopper,  it wouldn’t be  a problem… the grater’s pretty handy, too, I like to use it for carrots and ginger and onion.  For an easy clean-up in the kitchen, I like to use a big bowl as a temporary trash bowl for the vegetable peelings ( I got it from Rachel Ray.. great tip!)  if only I can always remember to do it.. 😛


Use left-over ham, pork roast or bbq, chorizos, sausages, Spam and even bacon – whatever you have on hand 🙂


For beautiful color and some added health benefits, I like to add turmeric powder.

    It IS a meal by itself – and a terrific meal indeed! The bowl of scraps is such a great idea.
