Having lived in Japan for almost six years, my family grew accustomed to certain Japanese dishes; Garlic Fried Rice was something we ordered with every take-out meal. If I had known it was so easy to make, I wouldn’t have ordered it so much and made it at home. I guess moving away and not having access to it gave me the motivation to learn how to make it. So, challenge accepted.
After attempting to make this dish a few times, I came close, but I never landed it until, BAM! One day my daughter spoke these confirming words, “Mom, you got it!” It was music to my ears. Challenge, conquered!
This recipe just contains garlic as the added ingredient but experimentation is highly encouraged. Adding shrimp, scallops, beef, or even some veggies will take this foundation recipe to the next level.
