  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cup red onion diced
  • 1 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup jalapeno diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups rice cooked and chilled the day before
  • 2 cups brisket diced
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Chipotle Tabasco Sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup green onions sliced, for garnish
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped, for garnish
  • 1 avocado diced, for garnish


  • Add the oil to the skillet, then saute the onions, garlic, bell pepper, and jalapeno.
  • Add the cold rice and brisket to the skillet and mix well.
  • Stir in the Chipotle Tabasco and Worcestershire sauces.
  • Whisk the egg in a small bowl.
  • Make a hole in the middle of the rice (adding more oil if necessary) and add the whisked egg. Stir it around inside the hole to cook the egg, then when it's partially cooked, mix it into the rest of the rice.
  • Season the rice with lime juice, salt and pepper, adding more Tabasco if needed.
  • Garnish with sliced green onions, chopped cilantro, and avocado. Dig in!



Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Day-old rice makes the best fried rice. When you cook it and chill it, the rice firms up and makes fried rice so delicious.
  • Cut any large chunks of fat off the brisket before adding it to the fried rice.
  • Adjust the spiciness of this dish by adding more Chipotle Tabasco or more jalapeno. Removing the seeds from the jalapeno lessens the spice level so leave them in if you like it fiery hot!
  • Switch up the veggies! The beauty of fried rice is you can add what you like to it. Try diced zucchini, celery, cabbage, and more!
