The Best Fried Rice You’ll Ever Make

This is one of the quickest and yummiest fried rice you’ll make.  The most time consuming part is getting day old rice.  Day old rice is best for fried rice because it’s harder than fresh rice so your fried rice dish doesn’t end up mushy.


  • chopped garlic – 1 bulb
  • green onions
  • 1 small white/yellow onion
  • sesame oil
  • unsalted butter
  • half a can of spam
  • day old rice
  • corn – preferably peaches and cream

Like most of my recipes, the amount of ingredients to add to your rice is dependent on how much rice you have, and what you like.  Adding more of one ingredient that you like does not break the dish.   The ingredients that make this dish delicious is simply the garlic, spam and the butter.

Saute garlic and spam in butter.  When the spam is half cooked, add the onions.

Add corn last.  I find that peaches and cream is tastier and crunchier than corn niblets. Niblets are larger, not as sweet and a bit mushier. I used niblets because that’s all I had.

Add old rice and stir.  Add a spoonful of sesame oil and mix with rice until you feel that most of the rice is coated. Add more butter if you wish. 😛

Sprinkle green onions on top and turn off the heat.  Since the rice is already cooked, you’re just warming and softening it in the pan. And the spam and garlic is already half sauteed, it’s safe to turn off heat shortly after you add the rice.  The spam is salty enough that you do not need to add salt but if you have saltier taste, you can add a dash of soy sauce.
