Kielbasa Fried Rice

Kielbasa Fried Rice


"A bit of Polish mixed with an old Filipino favorite. A terrific way to use up left-over rice. Definitely a favorite at my apartment! Be sure to use rice that is cooked the previous day. Fresh rice will ruin this recipe and make it mushy. Add more veggies for variety."

I browned cubes of lite kielbasa in the pan first, then used the little bit of grease they gave up to saute the onion. Used a 16oz bag of coleslaw mix instead of carrots and cabbage. And added...

This was good, although I really modified the amounts of the ingredients. I felt it was way too heavy on the sausage. I diced 8 oz. of fully cooked kielbasa, fried it, drained it, and then blo...

Really good...however I made a few slight changes; I used Turkey Kielbasa, brown rice and a whole bag of preshredded Angel Hair Cabbage. I also cooked the egg seperately(fried/scrambled) before ...

This is a dish we make more often these days. I would re-emphasize using left-over rice as opposed to fresh rice. Also, you probably don't need the oil; the sausage we use has enough oil so I ...

They modified this recipe before they posted it. One of the MOST important things with fried rice is to use rice that is a day old. If you use fresh cooked rice, it makes the recipe mushy. If t...

Made this with chicken instead of Kielbasa! WAS GREAT! Def scramble the eggs ahead of time and then just mix in - so easy! I added some peanut sauce as another review suggested. Will def ...

If I were to do this recipe again, there are many things I would change including cooking the eggs first, it made the rice super sticky to cook it all together.

This recipe is outstanding! I was looking for something to use my supersized head of cabbage for this week other than the usual coleslaw... I did not have kielbasa on hand, so substituted chic...
