Notes

This recipe can easily be doubled and we often do. When making fried rice it's just as easy to make 8 cups vs 4 cups. 
Tips for making Fried Rice
  • Use cold, day old rice
  • Make sure the griddle is hot
  • Don't add too much soy sauce
  • Use butter to cook. There is no substitute
  • Have everything prepped before cooking
  • Cook everything in batches
  • Avoid flipping too much, allow the rice to cook
Tips for Cooking on a Blackstone
Use one side of the griddle for cooking and the other for keeping things warm. Heat 3 burners over med-high heat for cooking and the 4th over low heat to keep things warm. 
Use butter to cook each thing. This is what makes the best fried rice and also prevents everything from sticking. 
Notes on the Rice
To achieve the best-fried rice it is crucial to use cooked rice that has been cooled and chilled overnight. If the rice is still warm it will have too much moisture which will prevent it from frying. So make sure you are using old, cold rice.
If there is no time to chill the rice overnight one way to chill it fast is to line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the rice out in a single layer. Place in the freezer for a few hours, and then it will be cold enough to use. 
Cooking in a Wok or Pan
This recipe is written to be made in a large batch on the Blackstone grill. If making in a cast iron skillet or wok make sure its large enough and consider cutting everything in half. 
Storage
This fried rice will keep in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. The rice will start to dry out after this time.
