1/2 cup of shallots diced

1/4 red capsicum diced

1/4 green capsicum diced

250 grams diced bacon (pork & chicken as well if you want combination)

300 grams small prawns (l buy mine from IGA freezer section)

1 cup of frozen peas

2 - 3/4 cups of chicken stock

4 eggs lightly whisked (cook the egg in fry pan like omelette thin dice)

1 teas minced ginger

2 teas minced garlic

1 teas fish sauce

2 teas sesame oil

3 tblsp soy sauce

1 tblsp oyster sauce

1 tblsp hoisin sauce

1 tin bean sprouts (optional)


1In a large fry pan dry fry the RAW rice with the 3 tblsp of olive oil & cook for about 5/7 mins until brown.

2Then stir through the onion,bacon (pork & chicken if combination) capsicum,peas,egg.cook for 2 mins,then put prawns in and cook for 1 min.

3Take off heat.

4ln a large jug add the stock & all the sauces,garlic,ginger & sesame oil.Mix and stir through the rice.

5Transfer to slow cooker & stir through the bean sprouts (if using) cook on High for approx 2 1/2---3 hrs.

6Stir occasionally & add extra water if needed.

7When ready to serve i stir through 1 teas extra of sesame oil.


1I cook this in my 5 litre sunbeam sear & cook,but you can cook in any slow cooker.It is ready when the rice is tender.I just keep more water by the slow cooker & keep stirring through until it gets tender.This makes a BIG amount.But if you are lucky enough to have any left over it freezers well.

2I created this Fried rice,because we love the Chinese inspired flavours. It is always asked for from my Family & Friends when we have get togethers. l hope you enjoy it just as much as we all do...

This was delicious. It took 1.5hrs on high. I will never make fried rice any other way!! 🙂

Made this tonight and I felt like an hour on high was enough. Really good flavour

This cooked beautifully, had to add a little extra liquid as it cooked. I stirred it every 45 mins. No prawns just bacon and cabana. Added onion, caps, mushys and green beans. Cooked for 2 1/2 hrs on high in 2 1/2 litre cooker. Turned off and let steam for half hour or so. I used basmarti rice. Not mushy at all. Will

This works perfectly in a 2.5/3 litre cooker. Its flavourful, not sticky and totally yummo. I used basmarti rice and stired it every 30 mins. Near the end i added a little extra water not much. Once cooked i turned cooker off and left the lid on to steam. Just perfect

Made this for the first time tonight and it was an absolute hit. My husband went back for seconds. Fantastic flavours

Either would be ok as it has heaps of time to cook. If using cooked one’s I’d personally just stir them through at the end in enough time to heat them up nicely

This might be a silly question but Are the prawns in this recipe raw or cooked?
I want to make this for mothers day tomorrow. Cheers

I used brown rice a sprinkle of Chinese spice, had no peas I put baby spinach instead. found it a bit salty. Apart from that it was nice.

This is a family fav, if I go to a bbq then this is always requested. Amazing flavour but i often need a little bit more stock. I do this in my 5.5litre cooker and use the tea towel. Love it 😊😊😊😊😊

Flavor was nice but unfortunately it was way to much liquid in the recipe that it went glugy/mushy. Not sure if I’ll try again but if I do will use less stock and maybe the tea towel trick.
