The water quantity on this cannot be right - 16 cups of water. I had to drain some of the water off, definitely not done in 15 min. Some help would be nice

This has been a family favorite for the past 10 years! It is a great side dish to go along with the pineapple pepper chicken on this site. Great for feeding a large party. We love it!

I've been making this for about ten years now and I think it's delicious and wouldn't change a thing. It goes especially well as a side with the grilled pork chops recipe on this site that has soy sauce, lemon juice and brown sugar, etc. in the marinade.

This is a good Chinese fried rice. I wouldn't call it "pilaf".
