"I've been trying to find a recipe that would be comparable to the beef fried rice I've had at a local Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant that we frequent to no avail until I stumbled across this! I omitted the onion, as I didn't have any on hand, and I substituted the oil for 4 tbs sweet cream butter. It was perfect! It looks and tastes almost identical. I will be making this often."

"I don't know why this is so good -- it's baffling. I was lazy and had no onions so I substituted onion powder (eyeball about 1 TBS), salt and garlic salt and somehow it turned out great. I did use a very good ground chuck so the fat from the chuck helped. Brilliant simple recipe (thank god for weeknights!) even without all the ingredients."

"Good, but needs veggies. I added green onion, and peas and carrots from the freezer. Also garlic powder and red pepper flakes. Thanks for this idea for dinner!"
