"This is an easy-to-prepare fried rice dished passed down by my Japanese mother. You won't find anything like it in the restaurants. Every time we have a family get-together or a covered dish luncheon at work, I am always requested to bring this rice."

  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausage until evenly browned. Drain, and remove sausage from the pan. In the same pan, using the remaining coating of grease from the sausage, scramble the eggs, stirring frequently until cooked through. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a very large skillet or electric skillet over medium-high heat. Stir fry the cabbage and carrots just until the cabbage has wilted. Add the cold rice, and fry, stirring so that there are no clumps. Mix in the sausage and pour in some soy sauce. Stir in bean sprouts, peas, and eggs, mixing well so there are no big chunks of egg. Season with pepper, and stir in green onions just before removing from the heat. Adjust soy sauce to taste, and serve.

I have been using this recipe site for a couple of years now, but this is the first time I have ever submitted a review. I read the other reviews and decided to give this recipe a try since my family loves fried rice. After making this dish, I must say, it is AWESOME!!! I have no idea why some of the reviews said it was bland. All I can figure out was that they did not make it correctly. Everyone in my family thought this was a very tasty dish. I'm glad I read the reviews and remembered to use COLD rice that had been in the refridgerator over night. I can't wait to try this recipe again with chicken....hmmmmm, or maybe even mini shrimp.....yummy!!!! Thank you so much for this recipe Glo! I will be making this on a regular basis.


Unless your feeding a group of training sumo wrestlers, I'd cut this recipe in half. I had four hungry mouths to feed and there are still plenty of leftovers (which is ok to me!). I made 3 changes: First, I scrambled the eggs in a seperate dish rather than do it in the leftover sausage grease. Second, I added just a splash of oil to the grease (to make sure there was enough) and when heated, I added the cabbage & then the cold rice (why must it be cold? I don't know). Finally, when the rice was slightly browned, I added a pkg of frozen (thawed) broccoli stir fry veggies instead of chopping my own, which has brocoli, onions, mushrooms, red peppers and water chesnuts. Once adding the eggs/soy sauce, this is a pretty dish and VERY filling. Would repeat this recipe again! Thanks Gloria!


I never thought I would be making my own fried rice. This recipe caused quite a problem for me. My family loves fried rice and I used to order it at least twice a month from a local restaurant. Since I have started making this recipe my family no longer wants me to order it from the restaurant. This is the BEST fried rice we have ever eaten hands down. It has such a great blend of flavors and is also fun to experiement with by adding or substituting ingredients. Thank you so much for this recipe Gloria.
