My husband’s colleague asked me for the recipe of Yangzhou fried rice a couple weeks before and here is the recipe. Couple days ago I made the Char Siu Pork and one of the special ingredients for this fried rice is Char Siu Pork. You can find the Char Siu Pork’s recipe in my previous blog.
This fried rice can easily found in the menu of a lot of Chinese takeaways in UK and why don’t you try it by yourself at home? It’s easy to cook and you can adjust the flavour by yourself.
I always like to cook by myself because cooking at home is healthier and more hygienic. You can put more vegetable and use less oil to avoid a unhealthy diet. I’m so surprised by my husband’s good appetite for this fried rice as he was never a big fan of iceberg lettuce.
