The secret in making good Yang Chow Fried Rice has something to do with the ingredients. First, it should be complete, as indicated in the recipe below. The more ingredients are used, the better. The rice should also not stick to each other. Among the necessary ingredients is Barbecued Pork. Also known as Char Siu, Barbecued Pork unleashes great flavors that make this fried rice recipe interesting. It also makes this fried rice complete, making it a meal in itself.
Rice variety plays an important role on every fried rice dish. Choose non-sticky rice when cooking your own fried rice. I also make sure to use leftover rice all the time. The starch in the rice gets less sticky as it gets colder. There is a big chance that the rice won’t stick to each other.
