Beef Fried Rice Recipe

If there is one meal that gets devoured every time by the Keiki children, it would be Beef Fried Rice!

This is a delicious yet simple beef fried rice recipe and it has plenty of vegetables for healthy tummies. The mixture of vegetables is what gives this meal its flavour, but if you like a bit of extra oomph on your plate you could stir through fresh coriander, basil or chilli depending on your preferences. The recipe is very versatile, so you can add in extra veggies, or use chicken or pork mince if that is what you prefer.

This recipe can be easily doubled (or tripled!) so it is easy to make a big batch and eat leftovers for lunch. Alternatively, freeze into individual  portions for easy mid-week dinners.
