Reviews for Mushroom Fried Rice
"This is the best fried rice! It is as good as any Chinese Restaurant we have eaten in. I like to serve this with the Asian chicken Thighs from the TOH sight."
"OMG--I can't find enough words to say just how easy to prepare and how delicious this recipe is! I followed the recipe as is except for one small change--my husband does not like ginger, so I left it out. My husband had three helpings and told me to hang on to this recipe because it's a keeper. I couldn't agree more!"
