Japanese Style Fried Rice – Yakimeshi


Japanese fried rice sometimes referred to as yakimeshi is similar to Chinese fried rice with the exception that short grained noodles are used. It is made made with ingredients such as eggs, vegetables, garlic, salt, pepper, and often a protein of some sort such as shrimp. The most unique thing about the dish is the addition of mayo.

It might sound strange to add mayo to rice, but it makes it so smooth, silky, and creamy, not to mention delicious. The great thing about the dish is that it is fast and easy and can be made start to finish, with the exception of the cooking the rice, in about 20 minutes to half an hour. It can be served on its own or as a side dish. 

As a result of our Japanese fried rice containing very few ingredients, it can be made very quickly. I don’t use vegetables in the dish dish just rice, egg, garlic, soy sauce, pepper, and green onions (which could be considered the one and only vegetable I guess). I, more often than not, serve mine up with chicken. I have been know to serve it up with pork or beef too. 

Give our Japanese style a try and let us know what you think.
