Fried Rice is probably my favorite thing to make on the Blackstone Flat Top. I love how quickly everything cooks on the flat top and the flavor it gives off. If you cook things right, they wont have a “fried / oily” taste, but if you don’t have the temp right it will make your food taste oily.
How do you like your fried rice?
There are MANY different ways you can make fried rice. I almost always throw something different in, when I make it. You can make it the traditional way as well, we just don’t prefer those vegetables, so we like using ones we do like. This recipe is great with fresh vegetables or frozen. I prefer frozen as they will be cooked entirely by the time they are done. Sometimes fresh vegetables take longer or they are more crunchy vs soft.
How do you prepare this dish?
Gather whatever kind of vegetables you prefer in this dish and get them going on the grill. I like to put those down first, as they typically take longer to cook. You also want to start on your rice, so its all done when the rest of the dish is ready so you can combine everything together. While the vegetables are cooking, you can get your eggs ready, Scramble them up in a bowl and add salt and pepper to taste.
A lot of people recommend that you cook your rice the day before you prepare your fried rice. I have personally tried that once and I didn’t care for how dry the rice seemed. You can do what I do, and cook your rice while you are preparing the rest of the dish. The rice will go on last, so it should be done by the time everything else is done cooking.
What order do you cook everything?
Start with your vegetables on the grill at a medium heat. Can change that depending on the temperature outside and if it is windy. Allow your vegetables to get a nice golden brown color to them. Add some olive oil while cooking, to ensure they get a nice crisp to them. Sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. You will want to also add a little soy sauce to them, just a couple splashes.
Now you will want to start onto the next step, turn your left burner on low and move your vegetables over to the side. Let them cook nice and slow while you bring out the shrimp. The shrimp cook fairly quickly. Put a tablespoon of butter down and add your shrimp. Again, salt and pepper to taste. Get them cooked up real nice and than mixed them in with your vegetables and get ready for the next step.
Now you will want to get the eggs going. Your grill should be set at a nice medium heat, so the eggs don’t run all over. Add a generous amount of olive oil to the grill, so the eggs don’t stick. With a good heat, they will cook quick enough without needing to chase them all over the place. Scramble up your eggs and than add a couple splashes of soy sauce as well. Toss everything together and get ready for the final step.
The last and final step, everything at this point should be over on the left side of your grill. Your rice should now be ready to throw down on the grill. Add a little oil before you put it down, keeps it from sticking to the grill. Cook the rice for a few minutes, adding some splashes of soy sauce as well as oil. Toss around a few times and than you can mix everything together.
The recipe below is for the 36″ Blackstone Grill. However, it would work with any of the sizes available. It is easier on the bigger grill because everything can be done at the same time. You can also change the vegetables to something that excites your taste buds more than these. I just use these because I know we like them. There are MANY options with this recipe, and I love that about it.
