Step 6: To this we add our frozen veg. there’s corn, peas and carrots, but you can choose what you want.

Step 7: Once it’s looking like everything is relatively mixed in together, add in a tablespoon of soy sauce, make some space on the pan and pour the soy sauce on the side before mixing everything in together.

2. yang Zhou fried rice

100g prawns 

2 eggs

1 cup of rice 

1 sprig sping onion 

2 clove garlic 

Prawn marinade


 Step 1: Start with chopping up the spring onions before mincing up a couple cloves of garlic, then grab your left over char siu and just chop them up into bite sized pieces.

Step 2: Then grab about 10 pieces of prawn and just cut them up to be a similar size as the char siu. Once that’s done – set that aside.

Step 3: Grab two eggs, whisk it up and set that aside too. 

Step 4: Add some oil to a pan and once it’s hot enough add in your prawns. Cook them til they change color and then take it out of the pan. 

Step 5: Then add in your garlic, let it sizzle, and then pour in your whisked eggs and like before let it cook to about 50% before adding in your rice

Step 6: Once the rice is in, mix it into the egg as quickly as possible.

Step 7: Then add in your prawns, give that a good stir – then add in your char siu,  give that a good stir too  before sprinkling in some spring onions. 

Step 8: Add in some salt, add in a tad bit of soy sauce and your yang zhou chao faan is pretty much done. 

3. beef with lettuce fried rice



150 grams of minced beef 

1 third romaine lettuce 

2 cloves garlic 

2 eggs 

1 cup rice 


Step 1: First we marinate the mince beef, I added ½ table spoon of rice wine, 1/3 tablespoon of sesame oil and ½ tablespoon of soy sauce, mixed it together and let is sit while you prepped the other ingredients. 

Step 2: Then,  like our previous 2 rice, chop up the spring onions, mince up a couple cloves of garlic, and then whisk up a couple eggs.

Step 3: After you wash the romaine lettuce, chop it up lengthwise.

Step 4: Add some oil to the pan and the first thing we are cooking up is the minced beef. Give it a good stir, break it apart until it’s all cooked. Once that’s cooked, take it out.

Step 5: Then add in your garlic into the wok. Then your eggs. Cook the eggs til it’s about 60% cooked before adding in your rice.

Step 6: Add in your rice and stir it in as quick as possible until each grain is evenly coated with egg.

Step 7: Add your minced beef back into the rice, give it a good stir and once it’s thoroughly stirred in, add in a tablespoon of soy sauce just on the side of the rice before adding in your chopped lettuce. 

Step 8: Add salt, white pepper and maybe more soy sauce to taste and you’re pretty much done! 

4. bacon & kimchi fried rice



120g bacon

1 tablespoon gochujang (more if you want it more spicy) 

2 cloves garlic 

1 sprig spring onions 

1/3  cup kimchi 

1 cup rice 

1 egg


Step 1: Start with chopping up the spring onions and the minced garlic.

Step 2: Roughly chop up your kim chi. 

Step 3: Then take out your bacon – I used middle bacon, and then chop them into small rectangles. 

Step 4: Once the pan is heated up add your chopped bacon into the pan and give it a good stir. Take it out of the pan once it’s cooked. 

Step 5: Then add a bit of oil and add in your garlic, before adding in your kim chi and then your rice.

Step 6: Once your rice is thoroughly mixed in, add in your gochujang, give it a very good mix.

Step 7: Add in half a tablespoon of soy sauce, just on the side and finally add your bacon back into the rice. Give it a good toss or a mix.
