Homemade [crockpot] Fried Rice

I decided to make fried rice.  No, I've never done it before.  But it's all about confidence.  And faking it.  "Fake it till you make it."  Right?  Right.  

Ok.  This was easy.  Like seriously, easy.  It took all of about 10 minutes to prepare.  And 2 hours to cook. Wait, what?  OHHHH.  I knew that crock pot was good for something!!

That's right, crock pot fried rice!

I got the idea from A Year of Slow Cooking.  Or really, I got the idea from Pinterest.  But whatever.
Everything all in the pot. 

Like I said, this was the easiest thing I've made in a long time.  Here's what I did:

The Ingredients

  • Rice (I didn't have any leftover rice, so I made some fresh.  I cooked 2 cups dry rice to make enough for about 4 people)
  • Vegetable (Once again, I didn't have any leftovers....So I chopped up some onion, carrots, and red bell pepper.  I also used some green peas).
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

The Method

  • Dump everything into the crock pot.
  • Mix
  • Cook 3-4 hours on low OR 2-3 hours on high


Note:  I made this for dinner and one of my friends needs to eat gluten free.  Well, the soy sauce I had on hand was not gluten free.  In order to not kill my friend, I used all Worcestershire Sauce (about 3 1/2 Tablespoons).  It was still really delicious!!!

  1. We use Bragg's Liquid Amino acids. It's very very healthy for you, and is gluten free, and taste just like soy sauce. It's all we use. While if I only had worchestire sauce on hand it would be a good substitute it taste nothing like soy sauce, so you may want to look into the Bragg's.
