Filipino Garlic Fried Rice
What is Garlic Fried Rice?
Filipino garlic fried rice is typically served for breakfast with Hotdogs or Omelette. The garlic elevates this simple fried rice recipe, giving the fried rice an amazing flavour, great with any Filipino dishes! If you haven’t tasted this before this is your sign.
Garlic rice is also served with +silog breakfast or brunch combo meal. These meals are very popular because they are affordable and you have many combinations to choose from.
What I like using is a couple of days old rice. The one you put in your fridge and it turned hard because the fridge dried the moisture out of the rice. This is the perfect rice to use as they are not wet. It’s important that you use dry cooked rice so that it won’t turn sticky. When cooked rice is dry, the grains separate more easily and get nicely coated with the oil. You don’t get a clumpy, greasy mess, you just get tasty fried rice!
In a wok, heat some oil on medium heat. Add garlic and cook them until they turn slightly brown but not golden. Turn the heat down to low and add the cooked rice. Stir the rice until they are coated with the garlicy oil, don’t squash them, let it cook gently until the grains break off from each other. Add salt, black pepper and mix them well. Cook for 10 minutes. Turn the heat off and it’s ready to serve with your favorite Filipino food.
