XO Fried Rice Recipe


  • 2-3 cups (day old), cooked rice
  • 1-2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 whole (small) ginger, grated
  • 1 bunch green onion, sliced into small rounds
  • 2-3 tsps. XO sauce (I usually use Din Tai Fung’s, but any brand is okay)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • salt to season


  • Heat oil and sautè ginger until fragrant
  • Add green onion and sautè as well
  • Add XO sauce
  • Add rice
  • Add beaten egg
  • Season with salt
  • Toss everything well to make sure ingredients are mixed evenly


*Add XO as needed, for more intense flavour.

*Use a non-stick pan.

*Be quick in tossing everything together so the egg does not dry up.

*It is best to use one day old rice and not rice that is fresh off the rice cooker to ensure a fluffy consistency.
