"Yes, I have been in the kitchen making fried rice again! Fried rice is one of my favorites. The sesame seeds in this version offer a delicious nutty taste that makes this perfect to accompany Chinese stir-fries, Japanese teppanyaki, and Korean bulgoki. The use of brown rice should gain approval from those trying to cut carbs."
