Did you know that you can cook almost anything in a rice cooker? Well I didn’t. I am all about easy and this my friends is almost too easy! You throw everything in and turn the rice cooker on and set it and forget it! (Isn’t that an infomercial? Haha) It is delicious!! Flavor is awesome and rice is cooked perfectly. It makes a great side to any meal!
Rice Cooker Fried Rice
- 2 cups beef stock
- 2 cups rice
- 1 Tbsp oil flavor infused oil works really well
- 250 grams of bacon or chicken, spam, ham, any meat you like!
- 1 onion sliced
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1 cup frozen vegetables I used peas and carrots
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- Turn Rice Cooker to cook and add oil, bacon, onion, and garlic. Stir frequently until onion is soft.
- Add rice to rice cooker and coat in oil.
- Add the frozen vegetables and beef stock and mix well.
- Turn the rice cooker on and let it do its thing!
- When finished stir in soy sauce and serve! Enjoy!

Could this be tripled for a potluck?
In the fried rice in rice cooker, is the bacon already cooked
It is cooked prior to adding it in.
I have two questions about this recipe:
1. how many servings will this make? and
2. can I use brown rice, and if so, what adjustments, if any, do I need to make to this?
OH, you will love this rice! It makes about 6 to 8 servings. You are welcome to use brown rice. There would not be any adjustments since your rice cooker will do the work for you;)! Hope you enjoy! XOXO
Fir rice to ge cooked in the rice cooker the ratios fir white rice is 2 to 1, being 2 cups of liquid to 1 cup of raw rice. This recipe will produce raw, dry rice. Add the extra broth and let the rice take its time to soak in the ingredients. A better rice!
I’m sorry I have to disagree with you. It is one cup of rice to one cup (or ever so slightly more) liquid. My Mother always just measured the liquid being up to the thumb knuckle over the rice. Asians deplore gluggy rice and I should know, I’m Chinese and living in Asia 🙂
How long does this take to cook?
There should be a cook setting on your rice cooker and it will cook until it is done. Usually takes about 20-30 minutes.
I am confused by the raw or cooked rice comment above. It is raw rice right?
Yes you put raw rice into the rice cooker.
Great recipe! Made it for dinner and added 2 raw/whisked eggs on top with spring onion when nearly done with the soy sauce on top and let sit till ready to serve. Was awesome 🙂 I could eat it as a meal itself instead of a side!
Just tried this last night for make ahead school lunches. It was a little dry straight out of the rice cooker, so I just stirred in some more beef stock. I also added some scrambled eggs at the end. SO good!!
Awesome Recipe! Although it may be helpful to readers who attempt the recipe to clarify whether the rice is cooked or uncooked when you put it in the cooker. I wasn’t sure and although it’s kinda obvious, I’d like to think I’m not the only one who missed that. :p
This looks so much better, than the stuff you get at all the Chinese places. Really nicely done!
