Easy Beef Fried Rice

Easy Beef Fried Rice. Loaded with beef, carrots and broccoli! Ready in under 30 minutes!

Easy Beef Fried Rice

Beef Fried Rice is one of my favorite meals. It’s an easy way to use up leftover rice and veggies that you have in the fridge. Best of all this Beef Fried Rice can be made in under 30 minutes!

I loaded this fried rice with carrots, broccoli, and lots of garlic. Everything gets sautéed in a large skillet along with the beef and rice. Once everything is cooked I add in my sauce: soy sauce, sesame oil and oyster sauce. Just 3 ingredients!

 

The trick to The Best Fried Rice is using cold day old rice. If you are like me and don’t always plan ahead make sure to cook your rice first and allow it time to completely cool in the fridge. Fried rice is best when it is made with cold rice. You can even cook the rice the night before. The longer the rice sits the better it tastes! Enjoy!

Easy Beef Fried Rice. Loaded with beef, carrots and broccoli! Ready in under 30 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons oil divided
  • 3 eggs whisked
  • 8 ounces flank steak cubed
  • 2 medium carrots small dice
  • 1 cup broccoli cut into small florets
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups cooked and chilled rice (I either use white or brown rice)
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • sesame seeds for garnish if desired

Instructions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil into a large skillet.
  2. Add the eggs and scramble until fully cooked. Remove them from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan.
  4. Add the steak and cook over high heat for 2-3 minutes, just until seared and caramelized on the outside. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  5. Add carrots and broccoli to the pan and cook until tender, 3-4 minutes.
  6. Stir in garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  7. Add in the cold rice and sauté for 3-4 minutes. The rice should brown up a bit.
  8. Add the eggs and the steak back to the pan and stir in soy sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil. Cook for 1-2 minutes to heat through.
  9. Serve immediately with sesame seeds for garnish, if desired.

      Hi Lee,

      You can use fish sauce if you like. You will want to reduce the amount of soy and or oyster sauce so that it is not too salty.

      I hope you enjoy!

    This looks so easy and yummy! Can I substitute the minced garlic with garlic powder?

    Thanks!

      Hi Carly,

      You can, it won’t be quite the same. I would only add about 1 teaspoon right before the sauce goes in so that it doesn’t burn. I hope that helps. Thank you for your comment!

    Can I substitute the white rice for cauliflower rice and cook it the same? or any additional suggestions if using cauliflower rice?

    • Nathan

      Hi Veronica,

      You can use cauliflower rice interchangeably in this application. I Hope you enjoy!
