A quick and easy fried rice recipe any Canadian can make with stuff they have lying around. Too tired to go to the grocery store? Have some spicy, salty Dawn Fried Rice! It's a perfect easy recipe for students that re-heats well.
Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, 1 dash soy sauce, 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce, and 1 tablespoon curry powder in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
Stir mushrooms and frozen vegetables into beef; reduce heat to medium-low and cook and stir until heated through, about 2 minutes. Fold rice into beef mixture; stir in remaining soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, and curry powder. Add cumin; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
I use a typical pea and carrot mix for the vegetables, but you can choose vegetables based on your own preferences. Fresh mushrooms are okay in place of canned mushrooms.
Thick teriyaki sauce is also key, since it's just great. I prefer Golden Dragon(R) Thick Teriyaki Sauce, but VH(R) Teriyaki Stir-Fry Sauce is also good.
