Golden Fried Rice

Golden Fried Rice

No need for a screaming hot pan for this take on fried rice! This side dish is packed with flavor from spices and given a creamy finish with golden egg yolks stirred into the hot rice before serving. We learned of this genius technique from Lucas Sin of Junzi Kitchen and adapted it to the microwave — turns out it works!

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
