  • ¼ cup oyster sauce*
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce, plus additional to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Land O’Lakes® butter with Canola oil, divided
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Canola oil
  • 1 large red, yellow, or orange bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch dice (about 1 ¼ cups)
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag of frozen peas and carrots, thawed
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed – optional, but great for extra protein
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 ½ cups COLD cooked brown rice, break up large clumps with your fingers
  • ½ cup chopped green onions, about 3 medium
  • red pepper flakes — Sriracha, or hot sauce of choice, optional
In a small bowl, stir together the oyster sauce and soy sauce.  Set aside.
Grab a small bowl and a large, flexible rubber spatula and keep both handy.
Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot, about 2 minutes.  Add ½ tablespoon Land O’Lakes® butter with Canola oil, and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan.  Add the eggs, and cook without stirring until they barely start to set, about 20 seconds. With your spatula, scramble and break the eggs into little, bite-sized pieces. Continue to cook, stirring constantly now, until eggs are just cooked through but not yet browned, about 1 additional minute.  Transfer eggs to the small bowl and set aside. Return the skillet to the heat, and increase the heat to high. Let the skillet warm until it is nice and hot, about 1 minute.  Add the canola oil, and swirl to coat.  Add the diced bell pepper, and cook until it is crisp and tender, about 4 minutes.

Add the remaining 1 ½ tablespoons Land O’Lakes butter with Canola oil, peas and carrots, and edamame. Cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds.  Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds (do not let the garlic burn!).

Add the brown rice and the oyster sauce mixture.  Continue cooking, stirring constantly and breaking up any remaining rice clumps, until the mixture is heated through, about 3 minutes.  Add reserved eggs and green onions.  Cook and stir until the mixture is completely heated through, about 1 minute more.
Enjoy  immediately with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes or dash of hot sauce and additional soy sauce as desired.

Recipe Notes
Let your cooked homemade fried rice come to room temperature and place it in the refrigerator in an airtight storage container for up to 5 days.
Place your fried rice on a microwave-safe plate or in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute or until warmed through.
Once your homemade fried rice has cooled, place it in a freezer-safe container or ziptop bag, removing as much air as possible. Freeze for up to 3 months.*Oyster sauce is readily available in the Asian or international food aisle of most major grocery stores. It has a unique flavor and texture, and if you substitute something else for it, your fried rice won’t taste the same.
If you’d like to experiment with making the recipe without oyster sauce, you can simply omit it or swap in 1 tablespoon sesame oil to add flavor.
