One of my all time favorite dishes is Chinese Fried Rice. In fact I often take my wok with me when I’m camping.
Since most of you aren’t crazy enough to pack a wok in your camping gear, I started thinking about how I could make a simple fried rice recipe in a Classic Dutch Oven.
As recipes go, I probably had more doubts about this one than any I had come up with before. After a little experimentation I was surprised to find that you could make a very tasty and effortless fried rice this way.
I’m now confident you won’t find a better version of this recipe anywhere

Dutch Oven Fried Rice
- Start about 18 charcoal briquets in a chimney starter.

- In a small hot skillet add a small amount of cooking oil.
- Add the egg mixture, turning once after it begins to puff up and cook until done.
- Cool and slice the egg into pieces about the same size as the pork.
- In a 10 inch dutch oven, mix the water, soy sauce, canola oil, and sesame oil.
- Add the remaining ingredients, and stir until blended.
- Place 6 coals under the dutch oven, with the remaining coals spread evenly across the lid.
- Allow to cook for at least 30 minutes, rotating the lid and oven ¼ turn in opposite directions halfway through.
