Stir-Fry/Fried Rice Using Beef Rice a Roni Instead of White Rice

For this stir-fry recipe, we will be using Rice-a-Roni instead of white rice. The mixture of rice/vermicelli gives this recipe a special texture and holds the flavors perfectly.

I came across the idea of using the store-bought Rice-a-Roni box stir-fry because I did not have any other rice in the house and did not want to go to the store. From that day on, this is the only way my family and friends want to eat their stir-fry now.

This recipe consists of fresh vegetables, so there will be a lot of chopping in the process. Do not improvise with frozen vegetables! You can do that another time. Another main ingredient for flavor is the sesame seed oil. It gives it that authentic Asian flavor that you will be looking for.

Keep your wok seasoned rub oil after every use.

To take care of the wok, you shouldn't use soap or any abrasive scrubbing. After you cook something, rinse the wok with very hot water and, if there are any stubborn food particles sticking, just use a paper towel and a couple tablespoons of salt to dislodge it. Rinse thoroughly. After every use, dip paper towel in oil and rub oil all over the inside of the wok. This will keep it from rusting.
