Paul’s Fried Rice


  • 1 wok


  • 1 cup dry rice
  • 1 cup organic frozen peas
  • 1 cup organic diced carrots
  • 1 cup purple onion
  • 1 cup organic chopped cabbage
  • 1 cup organic diced green onions
  • 1/2 cup broccolini
  • 2 free-range, organic eggs
  • 8 oz grass-fed sirloin steak sliced into bite sized strips
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 2-3 tbsp sweet ginger chili sauce
  • 3 tbsp cold-pressed olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon


  • Wash and rinse rice well, multiple times to remove white dust (excess starch). This will keep the rice from being sticky. Cook per instructions for rice. Set aside.
  • Heat the wok until very hot. Add in the oil and cabbage. Cook the cabbage until slightly brown on edges.
  • Add the meat into the wok and brown.
  • Add the rest of the vegetables and cook until hot, but keep the vegetables crunchy. Don't overcook.
  • Stir in the tamari and chili sauce. Add the rice to the wok and mix in with the rest of the vegetables. The rice will pull out all the moisture. You can add extra tamari or sweet chili sauce as needed- you want the rice to have a light brown coating.
  • Push the rice and vegetable mixture to the side of the wok. Add more oil to the wok to cook the eggs. Add the eggs and cook until mostly done but still a little runny. Incorporate into rice and vegetables. If the eggs are too runny, it will make the rice and vegetables a "gloppy mess." The egg should bind some of the rice together but also be pieces of cooked egg mixed in with rice and vegetables.
  • Turn off the heat and squeeze the lemon over the fried rice. Mix it all together.
  • Enjoy.


  • You can substitute any vegetables or meat you like in this recipe. 
  • Pre-cook the rice and have it cooled before you begin making the fired rice for best results and to make this a quick recipe.
  • Tamari is a better choice than soy sauce, as it is gluten-free and is the “real” soy sauce, not a cheap imitation made from GMO wheat.
  • My recipe calls for cold-pressed olive oil, but cold-pressed grape seed oil will work fine as a substitution.
  • I like to add something sweet into my fried rice, so the recipe uses a sweet ginger chili sauce.
  • You can get a turkey frier to make a cheap outdoor wok.
