Ground Beef Fried Rice

 Ground Beef Fried Rice
Years ago, I frequently depended on economical ground beef to feed my three hungry kids. I fixed it every way imaginable. This was one of our favorites.—Edith Haney, Erie, Pennsylvania
6 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • Dash pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
  • 2 cups cooked long grain rice
  • 2 small onions, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Directions

  • In a large bowl, beat eggs and pepper until blended. In a large
  • skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Pour eggs into
  • skillet. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow
  • underneath.
  • When eggs are completely cooked, remove from the skillet; cut into
  • strips; return to pan. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cook and
  • stir over medium-low heat in remaining oil for 5 minutes or until
  • heated through.
  • Yield: 6 servings.
If you're using cold leftover rice in Beef Fried Rice, let it come to room temperature before adding it to the skillet so it doesn't cool down the other ingredients.
