Yang Zhou Fried Rice is one of the most popular varieties of fried rice. It is so popular that it is served in almost every Chinese restaurant around the world. Chinese barbequed pork or 'cha shao' (叉烧) is an essential ingredient in Yang Zhou Fried Rice. It is the barbequed pork that gives it its special sweetish flavour. Just like the other types of fried rice, Yang Zhou Fried Rice contains a wide variety of ingredients.

Most Chinese restaurants cook Yang Zhou Fried Rice with MSG. They also cook with high heat - thus destroying valuable natural nutrients found in the ingredients of Yang Zhou Fried Rice. Home-style Yang Zhou Fried Rice is cooked in a healthy way, without MSG & unecessary high heat. Even without any artificial flavouring, this recipe shows you how to cook Yang Zhou Fried Rice which is just as tasty if not tastier than those found in restaurants.
